The WCR brace was created by world famous leading orthotist Grant Wood from the Align Clinic (USA). It combines the work of 3 great minds in the scoliosis community, Grant Wood, Dr Jaques Cheneau, Dr Manuel Rigo, with the first Cheneau brace being made in 1979 and being adapted with research to be the brace we know as WCR today. WCR braces are endorsed by The International Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) and are supported by some of the highest levels of evidence-based effectiveness.
It has always been Lisa’s vision to have a place where patients’ can go to be completely conservatively managed- and know they are in “the right place”. This is where the decision to align with Grant Wood and the team from Align Clinic in the USA has come from. The teams’ values and patient care really represent and align with those of the Perth Scoliosis Clinic team as his attention to detail and patient care is second to no one in the world. If you get a brace with Perth Scoliosis Clinic you might even be lucky enough to meet our amazing team support via zoom, Stephanie Romero and Raul Ferrera Hernández.
