There are literally hundreds of types of medical braces used for hundreds of different medical conditions; everything from braces for a bad back to knee braces for sports injuries. There are thousands of manufacturers of medical braces worldwide, so securing a wholesale source for the products should not be difficult. The braces can be sold to consumers in a few different ways, including establishing a sales kiosk in a mall or close to a hospital or medical center, selling the braces online and advertising the braces in specialty publications for mail-order sales. Medical braces are specialized products, so maintaining markups of 100 percent is justified.
