Charleston Bending Brace (CBB)
Charleston Bending Brace has been the benchmark for non-surgical, nighttime, scoliosis management for more than 35 years.
CBB clinical outcomes are guided by three principles:
- Growth Modulation (unbending): The rate of the epiphyseal growth plate is affected by pressure applied to its axes. An area of increased pressure inhibits growth and an area of decreased pressure accelerates growth.
- In Brace Correction: The amount of in brace correction is a predictor of long-term outcome of the treatment. CCB principles overcorrect a spinal curve in accordance with the spine flexibility and maintain the patient's scoliotic curvatures at, or near, pre-brace values throughout the growth period and on to skeletal maturity.
- Patient Compliance: Patient comfort and compliance is promoted through nocturnal wear. Compliance is measured by Intelligent Orthotics (iO™) compliance monitor embedded into the device.
