The Summit 456 restricts torso movement, creating a dynamic environment for healing throughout the thoracic and lumbar spine. It is comfortable to wear, and easy to put on and take off. The Summit 456 was designed specifically for patients with conditions that are more challenging to treat (like compression fractures, burst fractures, kyphosis and fusions).
Careful washing will prolong the life of the brace. Remove all stays before washing. Hand wash with a non-detergent washing solution, and air dry (away from the sun and heating vents). Do not put the brace in the washing machine or dryer.
