Brace for Impact

Hadley and Delaney with decorated back braces

The Brace For Impact initiative funds scoliosis braces for children and teens unable to afford their treatment.

The Need:

The cost of a scoliosis brace can range between $3,000 to $10,000.  Since braces are custom-fitted and often replaced multiple times as the patient grows to skeletal maturity, the cost of treatment can become unaffordable if not fully covered by insurance.

Covered Expenses:

Brace For Impact covers the uninsured costs of custom-fitting and manufacturing scoliosis braces (and related expenses) for in-need patients.
