This is the kyphosis brace that is still widely used in Greece.
It was designed at the KAT Athens Accident Hospital in the early 1980's.
It is constructed on a mold made from thermoplastic material, usually polyethylene or polypropylene with a Plastazot foam material lining.
It applies pressure on the sub-clavicle areas with duralumin rods, it has posterior metal supports and its basic characteristic is the large metal pad at the top of the hump.
The pressure points are covered with Plastazot.
It buckles behind with straps, like the BOSTON type.
Its weight and volume, combined with the fact that it buckles behind, makes it unacceptable from the teenagers.
