WCR and Rigo-Cheneau Braces
What is a WCR Brace?
The Wood-Cheneau Rigo (WCR) spinal orthosis is a thermoplastic brace uniquely constructed to bring the trunk and spine into the optimal postural alignment. The pressure points and expansion areas are located, shaped and oriented to apply pressure to selected regions of the trunk, bringing the patient into the best possible 3-dimensional correction while maximizing comfort.
The WCR brace concept employs regional derotation, using an unique pressure-system to guide frontal plane alignment and sagittal plane profile balance. Through this design, the WCR prevents lordotization of the spine while treating the patient’s scoliosis.
Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with scoliosis?
If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment, we have over 40 WCR Brace Clinics in the US and Canada,
ready to advise and give you the best option.
