Brace case is a design concept to cover a skoliosis brace with textiles. The common brace is based on a 3D derotation principle with the effect of an assymetric shape. The superficies gets a visual symmetric assimilation through material addition. Afterwards the brace slides in a garment with a special pocket. The garment cant ship out of position while wearing and moving. Design and textiles create a new shape and distract from stigmatizing parts of the brace. The textiles reduce sweat production. The result is a combination between orthopaedics and fashion design considering selected textiles to make wearing a brace more attractiv.
