Efficacy of Dynamic Elastomeric Fabric Orthoses in the Management Of Scoliosis

Martin J. Matthews, MPhil, Unknown,



The use of scoliosis correcting dynamic elastomeric fabric orthoses (DEFO) have been used in the UK for a number of years for children with neurological dysfunction or deficit. The subjects would previously have been treated with rigid or semi- rigid constructed spinal jackets, however some have been reported to be less than favourable for some of the conditions. This paper will demonstrate the efficacy of using this type of dynamic orthoses as a treatment over a period of years for a number of single cases.
