Hi scoliosisat12,

Different types of braces require different lengths of time. The Providence is about 8 to 10 hours and only at night. The Boston Brace is about 12 -16 hours a day, sometimes 23 hours a day, depending on how old you are and your degree of curve(s). My daughter, scolioswimmer - age 12, has a Providence Brace and her cousin has a Boston Brace.
