General Bracing


An orthosis is a brace that changes, supports, limits or immobilises a certain part or joint of the body. Orthoses may be applied to any part of the body, including the lower limb, upper limb, torso and head. They may be used by people of all ages and activity levels for a variety of reasons.

An orthosis can help to:

  • Assist movement
  • Correct function
  • Limit or immobilise one or more joints of the body
  • Offload parts of the body or a joint
  • Prevent injury
  • Rehabilitate injury
