BRACES (see text for reference) 1. What is the difference between an “off the shelf” and a custom brace? An "Off the shelf" brace will come in sizes such as small, medium and large, and are ready to use upon purchase. These will be less expensive usually than a custom brace which is fitted for each specific person and isn't constructed until fitting the specific person beforehand. The shape, weight and sport of the individual will be taken into account when building the brace. 2. What are the three general types of braces? Give a brief statement describing the used of each. -prophylactic braces are designed to protect an uninjured joint and the surrounding soft tissue. ex. ankle brace -rehabilitative braces are used to provide immobilization after a surgical procedure. ex. hinged elbow brace for the progression of flexion and extension after surgery.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
