An Orthosis is any device added to the body to stabilize or immobilize a body part, prevent deformity, protect against injury, or assist with function. Orthotic devices range from arm slings to corsets and finger splints to many types of braces such as knee, ankle, leg, back, or neck. They may be made from a variety of materials, including rubber, leather, canvas, rubber synthetics, and plastic. 

An Orthosis has varying degrees of flexibility depending on each individuals needs. Some orthosis have features with more rigid composites while others feature softer more lightweight materials. All are designed and built to be the most comfortable, best fitting orthosis available anywhere. However your orthosis is fabricated, you can be assured it will be the best fitting and most advanced available.
