Female Brace

Compression frame

Pectus carinatum affects millions of children globally, and its treatment involves extended compression of the breastbone to allow correct alignment. Current frames have been unchanged for 80 years and are anatomically unsuitable for female users. Uncomfortable, activity-limiting, and difficult to wear, current devices are difficult to disguise, driving feelings of isolation and stigmatization. Female Brace, designed specifically for the teenage female form, fits discreetly beneath clothing and uses contemporary materials and mechanisms to create a more comfortable, clinically effective, and discrete solution.

iF GOLD STATEMENT

This medical brace expertly helps teenage girls with pectus carinatum correct their posture for better physical and mental health. The human-centered design is shown in the clear and approachable form and mix of materials. Comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and intuitive to use.
