Q&A for AlignMed S3 Posture Brace
- From Kyle
- Q: What is the wearing schedule? How long each day do i wear the brace? Do I eventually wean myself off of it?
- A: Hi Kyle,
The wearing schedule is determined according to the patient's symptoms and their unique diagnosis. Some individuals wear the S3 for the entire day to help with pain from chronic postural deficits whereas others wear it just for sports training purposes. So the type of individuals using this product is as varied as their injuries. Consult with your healthcare professional for specific recommendations as to the frequency and duration of use for this brace.
- From Nusa
- Q: I've seen an S4 model online. This one seems designed to work for my scapular & rotator cuff issues, yet the S4 also appears designed for shoulder (among other) recoveries... How are they different?
- A: Hi Nusa,
We have also seen the mention of an S4 brace online which looks exactly like the Alignmed S3 - this is an error on the part of this online entity not getting the product's title correct. The S3 is designed to treat scapular and shoulder conditions related to postural deficiencies. It's both comfortable and is easy to apply in seconds. The straps can be applied in different directions to correct the dynamic positioning of the scapulae with everyday, work, and sports activities.
- From Mary
- Q: I have a patient who is 5'3", Waist 40", Weight 160, length of torso 20". What size would she fall under?
- A: Hi Mary,
In this case all of your "dimensions" do not fall neatly underneath a particular size which means a custom made product would have to be ordered so that it fits properly. We can do that at not extra charge. Simply give us a call and we'll help with ordering up a custom-made (non-returnable) version of the S3.
- From Bill
- Q: Should I sleep with it on? How long each day should I wear it?
- A: Hi Bill,
As we do not have your name in our system here, it is best that you consult with your healthcare professional about the proper treatment application and length of time this type of medical product should be worn.
