Welcome to the official site of the Charleston Bending Brace ™

The most respected name in the art and science of nighttime spinal bracing.

Developed and patented in the 1980s by C. Ralph Hooper, CPO in collaboration with an elite group of orthopedic specialists, the CBB set the standard for modern-day treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

Its transformative nature freed patients from the stigma and constraints of
16-23-hour daytime bracing which here-to-fore was standard treatment.

Copied but never duplicated, the Charleston Bending Brace™, under Mr. Hooper’s expertise provides unparalleled quality and performance with each individual custom made brace. Each orthosis is designed by a visionary who first conceived a modern approach to nocturnal bending correction.

Mr. Hooper has identified three critical areas in the approach to AIS treatment:

  1. Early intervention is critical. (Risser 1-2 during skeletal development is optimal).
  2. Initial treatment of AIS should start with a night time brace.
  3. Require a Charleston Bending Brace™ for best results.

To guarantee authenticity, the Charleston Bending Brace™ logo is now embossed on each individual brace during fabrication.

Please look for the symbol of authenticity.
