suspension TLSO

Linda And Ken

Hello all,

I have a request to do a “suspension TLSO” for a young patient with sacral
agenesis. It is my understanding that the TLSO would be part of a seating
system. I have seen photos at some point of a similar device with threaded
inserts that get pulled into the polymer near the waistline and round bar
stock that attaches to these and then to a base under the seat of the
wheelchair.

My question is: does anyone know of a source for these components? If so,
have you had any experience with using them or any tips for doing this sort
of thing. I imagine the biggest concern would be excessive pressure/
breakdown at the costal margin as a deep waist impression would be key for
unloading. Any advice would be appreciated and I’ll be glad to post
results.

Thank you,
