WHAT IF I PUT IN THE WRONG SHIPPING ADDRESS?
It is the customer's responsibility to provide an accurate and valid shipping address. Insufficient or incorrect information regarding your shipping address (e.g. street address, city, state, zip or postal code, etc.) may cause your order to be returned.
Orders that are returned to us due to invalid addresses provided by the customer require an additional shipping fee to be reshipped.
DO YOU HAVE PRODUCT WARRANTIES?
At BetterBraces.com, our return policy is congruent with industry standards, with some products enjoying extended guarantees. Our custom-made Defiance brace comes with a limited lifetime warranty, while other rigid braces carry a one-year warranty. Defiance limited lifetime warranty covers only the latest brace revision. Our products have a limited warranty from the date of purchase (see table below) against defects in materials and workmanship. Normal wear and tear during the usage of a product is not considered a defect. Pictures and/or return of the product for inspection can and will be requested for all Warranty claims before a replacement item will be issued.

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.
