Autograph manuscript by Charles François Tacheron in march 1845.
"containing a brief summary of the new clinical results obtained in the orthopedic and special medical institute of Dr Tacheron in Brussels"

Charles François Tacheron headed with his wife an orthopedic medical institute in Brussels specializing in the treatment of scoliosis in young girls.
While the doctors of the time proposed tenotomy to correct deformities, Tacheron follows in the line of Charles-Gabriel Pravaz by promoting medical gymnastics and muscle strengthening to his patients. It thus spares them the painful stretching sessions on the extension beds, and the dangers of medical intervention.

He is also the inventor of an orthopedic device: the physiological tilting belt, a sort of rehabilitation corset for the pelvis-column axis, the benefits of which and the latest developments are presented in this manuscript.
This text, although not published, is probably the one submitted to the Royal Academy of Medicine in Brussels in March 1845, mentioned in the bulletin of the said Academy.

We attach:

- Autograph letter signed by the author (September 10, 1846): Draft sent to Doctor Sauveur, perpetual secretary of the Royal Academy of Medicine to complain about the lack of serious involvement of the reporter who was supposed to examine his manuscript.
- Brochure for "Orthopedic and classical medical institute of young ladies for the healing of waist deformities without mechanical beds or crutches".
