I purchased one of these braces approximately 15 years ago from a Rexall Pharmacy in Chemainus BC. If I remember correctly, I paid less than $40.00 for it, and that included fitting. As you can imagine, it is now pretty well worn now (aluminum sides replaced numerous times due to breakage, new velcro straps, etc.) so I decided to get a new one. The new brace cost $152.00 dollars and did not include fitting! The quality has gone down considerably. I bent the sides to the same angle as my old one, put the brace on and stood up and the right side hinge collapsed! Examination showed the rivets in the hinge where loose. I tightened them and tried again, This time the left side went. The hinge stop was not making contact. After considerable effort, bending, tightening hinges etc., I got the brace so it would work. I would NOT recommend this brace to anyone due to the poor quality and greatly inflated price.
