Introduction: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of posture support corset (kypho-orthosis) on balance, quality of life, and dorsal kyphosis angle in patients with kyphosis due to osteoporosis. Materials and Method: Twenty-nine patients were randomized into two groups. One group (n=14) was given the conventional osteoporosis exercises, and the other group (n=15) was given the kypho-orthosis in addition to these exercises. Kyphosis angle and height were measured. Evaluations were done by Kinesthetic Ability Trainer device, single foot balance test, Timed Up & Go Test, Berg Balance Scale, Quality of Life Questionnaire . . . of the European Foundation for Osteoporosis at baseline, and after one and three months. Results: In both groups, a significant improvement was found after treatment in terms of values measured by Timed Up & Go Test, Berg Balance Scale, right and left foot balance test, the physical and mental functional dimensions of quality of life and dorsal kyphosis angle. A significant difference was found in height at three months in the corset group. Conclusion: Using kypho-orthosis does not provide additional benefit to the exercise program on balance, dorsal kyphosis angle and the quality of life; but it contributes to height increase by providing the patients with a more vertical posture Daha fazlası Daha az
