Why are online bracing products less expensive than the ones purchased in a physician office?
When you purchase your brace online, there are certain services and benefits that you won’t receive. Services that you will receive from your medical professional in the office but not from your online retailer may include::
- assessing your medical condition to determine the most appropriate brace
- measuring you to determine the appropriate brace size
- assessing brace fit
- billing your insurance company for the brace
- in person brace return or exchange if necessary
Comparing the cost of a device online vs. the cost of the same device provided in a medical professional’s office is not a valid comparison. As the consumer, you have to decide what is right for you and consider the trade-offs. Sure, online products tend to be less expensive – but you also lose the important services and benefits outlined above. Please make your decision carefully and, when in doubt, consult your medical provider and insurance company.
Buy more! Save more! You can now save as much as 15% or more by ordering multiple quantities of the same product (this includes left or right and different sizes of the same product). This is a great way to save for those who are purchasing for teams or large groups. For larger quantities of the same product, please contact Service@BetterBraces.com

How and why do you use "Cookies"?

The "cookies" that BetterBraces.com uses do not contain any personal data such as credit card information, passwords, or even your name or address. Cookies simply help us to identify your session on the site. They also help us maintain specific visit information about you without forcing you to register or to give personal information.
However, you should have the option of disabling "cookies" through your browser.

Secure Credit Card Transaction Processing
Our web site uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to transmit your credit card information from a secure web page to a secure application on our server. Once on our server, your credit card number is saved only long enough for us to process and approve the transaction. During the final stages of ordering online, you will see an unbroken key or locked padlock at the bottom of your browser window and https:// in the location window at the top of your browser. Both of these indicate that the page you are on is secured using SSL encryption to communicate with our secure web server. Because SSL encryption slows down a web site, it is only used in the final stage of ordering, before and after you enter your credit card information. You will not see these security indicators until you begin the checkout process and indicate that you prefer to order online with a credit card.
