Introducing The Corrective Movement Principle®
What Is The CMP Brace?A CMP brace is a rigid brace that is asymmetrical in design. Unlike other rigid braces, it utilises curve classification and corrective movement principles, offering an optimally focused correction. The CMP brace is worn for 20 hours a day. The brace can be removed for sports, dance, physical therapy, and other activities as long as it falls within the 4-hour window of when the brace is not worn.
Provides a degree of curve correction
• Depending on the type of scoliosis and when the bracing starts, the CMP brace can provide curve reduction of the spine.
Prevents or slows curve progression
• For some patient's scoliosis, the brace will stabilise the curve and stop scoliosis from worsening.
• For other patient's scoliosis, the brace will help slow the progression of the disease to where surgical treatment is no longer necessary
• If surgery is needed wearing the brace can reduce the degree of surgical intervention that is needed.
Provide Physical Support
• For Neuromuscular cases, the brace can prevent a spinal collapse
Take Advantage of Our Unique Curve Classification SystemFully customized night time, part-time scoliosis braces, each as unique as every patient’s curve. Unlike the simple classification systems used by other brace designs, CMP Brace curve classification is ultra-specific, considering far more than just the number of curves, spinal levels and direction. Therefore, our specialists can treat curves more specifically.
CAD/CAM Tech Delivers Optimal Comfort & AccuracyOur clinical team has over 75 years in scoliosis bracing and uses the latest Rodin 4-D software to accurately model each brace to fit individual patients, considering the specific curve type, the magnitude and rigidity of each curve. Consequently, no two patients’ CMP braces will be the same.
Patients Get To Design Their Own BracePatients can choose the color of their brace shell, special graphic transfers and stickers to make it their own.

Types Of CMP Braces
CMP Hard Brace
The CMP hard brace is used in growing children for spine curves that are between 25 and 60 degrees. The CMP brace is suitable for the following conditions: Infantile Scoliosis, Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis, Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis, Neuromuscular Scoliosis, Congenital Scoliosis, Syndromic Scoliosis.
CMP Lite Brace
The CMP Lite Brace is used for a range of patient conditions and for people of all ages, but its main use is for younger children with Neuro-muscular and Syndromic Scoliosis. The brace is designed to be useful when the pressure and hard edges of the brace are more likely to cut into the patient.
CMP Night Brace
The CMP Night Brace is worn for 10 – 12 hours/day and is used for treating children who have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Scoliosis. The CMP Night Brace is usually appropriate for growing children that have curves of 25 degrees and upward. The brace is specifically designed for recumbent wear only. It may be used when relaxing at night, laying on the sofa or bed or sleeping.
