My daughter was diagnosed with Scoliosis at 13 years old with an initial curve of 23°. Within 6 months of being diagnosed during the “watch and wait” period, her curve progressed to 43° meaning it was definitely time to be braced.
We quickly realized the new limitations bracing had on her clothing options and other challenges one faces while bracing. I never expected the brace would have a negative impact on her confidence. We tried to keep in mind the long-term positive impact bracing would bring to her health and well being.
It’s a known fact, brace compliance can reduce curve progression and the rate of surgery in patients with scoliosis. However, the overall rate of brace compliance can be low for some patients because of the challenges these patients face while bracing. Unfortunately, lack of brace compliance can have a negative impact on the perception of the efficacy of the bracing process. It is a possibility that the brace may not be working because the brace is not being worn according to the prescribed duration.
Here at Brace Buddies™ we are dedicated to supporting improved brace compliance through meeting the immediate needs of bracers. Needs like comfort, protection to skin and clothing and more clothing options while helping to disguise the brace. Meeting these needs helps to support increased self confidence.
Every shirt is custom made to order. They come in various sizes, lengths, fabrics and colours to meet each individual need.
We want to meet the pressing needs and help improve brace compliance for everyone, especially those that have real and immediate challenges with the brace. We hope to play an active role in improving the rate of brace compliance resulting in more positive long term physical and emotional health and well being.
Comfort + Protection + Style = Confidence
resulting in improved brace compliance!
Young or old, small or tall, for different braces worn for different reasons, all body socks are made to order!

Every wearer will find their unique way of wearing the body sock.
