The Core-Max® Odyssey is a lightweight pediatric TLSO that includes a thoraco-lumbar, aquaplast back panel. The panel has bilateral “wings” that hug the wearer and provide lateral support. The TLSO incorporates all the benefits of a traditional SPIO® orthotic by providing postural/spinal support while still permitting the recruitment and development of core strength.
