Copied but never duplicated, the Charleston Bending Brace was developed in 1979 by C. Ralph Hooper, Jr., CPO and an elite group of orthopedic specialists. Its transformative nature freed patients from the stigma and constraints of 16-23 hour daytime bracing. Consequently, the Charleston Bending Brace has become the gold standard for modern-day treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).
To guarantee authenticity, the Charleston Bending Brace™ logo is now embossed on each individual brace during fabrication.
Please look for the symbol of authenticity.
