Up to 4 million children each year are thought to be affected by pectus carinatum, also known as pigeon chest. While the condition mainly affects teenage boys, girls also suffer with the condition. Clamping the breastbones to allow them to grow correctly is an effective treatment but current frames are unchanged from 80 year old designs, are uncomfortable, debilitating and crucially not designed to fit a female form.
The new brace is specifically designed for the teenage, female form to fit neatly and discreetly. Worn beneath clothes using contemporary materials and mechanisms to create a more comfortable, clinically effective and discrete solution.
