Frequently asked questions
An orthopaedic brace can be defined as an external support of a limb, maintaining or improving function after some affection, like for example a fracture or palsy. An orthosis is a general term, to name any external system designed to correct an orthopaedic abnormality and/or to improve the function – like a brace, but also a dynamic splint, or even a wheelchair. A splint is a system of immobilisation of a joint, usually non-circular and relatively elastic. A cast is a circular system of immobilisation of a given joint, moulded on the joint – the shell encasing the limb can be a plaster cast or made of a synthetic material (fiberglass or plastic). As our company focuses on designing light anatomical braces, allowing some function despite the immobilisation, we chose Brace for the second part of our name, and Swi, to insist on our Swiss origins and Swiss-made quality.
You can easily order your personalized brace by using Swibrace’s software.
Once you order your brace, it will take ten working days to be delivered.
Swibrace’s cast can be worn at all times. Bath, shower and swimming are allowed.
One major advantage of 3D-printing over traditional casting, is that a given brace can be manufactured several times. Traditional plastic orthoses need to be replaced if worn for several months. Instead of having to start again moulding a thermoplastic, the occupational therapist can simply re-order a new brace from Swibrace, if this happens with a 3D-printed brace (our products are quite resistant but will also wear out after several months).
The duration is determined by the medical order. Swibrace’s cast will resist at least six weeks, under light activities.
Wearing the brace should not be painful at all. Get immediate medical advice in case of pain. There is danger of development of a chronic inflammatory syndrome called CRPS.
The brace is light yet resistant. It is compatible with some light activities, including white-collar work and some sports.
