Orthopaedic braces and support devices are medical devices designed to address musculoskeletal issues. Braces and supports are used to immobilize, support, off-load and protect injured bones, soft tissues, and joints of the body. Braces and supports can decrease pain, control swelling, increase proprioceptive input, limit undesirable movement, improve posture and optimize overall function.
