to Carbon Bracing
composite braces are not for everyone. Patients that require a lot
of skin contact to hold the leg in proper alignment are not the
best candidates for a composite brace. This material is not adjustable,
and since the ability to adjust the brace is key to success with
these patients, a thermoplastic brace is more appropriate.
patients with spasticity or mild to severe clonus are often stimulated
with an energy return brace. Therefore, they too are not good candidates
for a composite brace.
