FORCE PRESCRIBING BRACE FOR CHILD SCOLIOSIS TREATMENT
Čulík J.
pages 46 - +9p., full text

The children scoliosis is conservative treated by corrective braces. The brace is made individually for each patient. The article shows the new type of corrective brace with regulated force effect pat. n. 20022-3530CZ. The first is made the negative and then the positive form of children trunk. The final plastic brace is made according to the positive form. The brace consist of 2 or 3 parts connected by joints and on the appositive sides by telescopes with adjusted forces. This article describes the brace which has 2 parts. It can be used for spine defects at form letter ‘C’ (spinal curve has only one extreme). The first is shown the algorithm for calculation of the stress state at spine and spine correction for given brace force effect. The second part of article shows the calculation of an optimal values of telescope forces.
