Brace Evaluation

At the Tufts Medical Center Brace Evaluation, in downtown Boston we assess patients with all types of neurologic, musculoskeletal and functional problems that require bracing to improve function. Our physiatrists work closely with orthotists and therapists here at the hospital to select and fit braces that provide the highest level of comfort and best performance.

Additionally, we educate you, your family and your caregivers about correctly applying and using your braces at home so you enjoy their complete benefits while preventing skin abrasions and other problems that can cause pain, discomfort or potentially dangerous infections.
