3D Custom Design
The ScoliBrace design team utilize the multiple 3D scans, digital X-rays and posture photos to design a truly 3D over-corrective custom brace. The designs are created using computer aided design (CAD) software. The design process follows an algorithm based on the individual type of scoliosis the patient presents with. This algorithmic approach ensures consistency within the design process whilst also allowing for individual customization to achieve the best possible outcomes.
3D Custom Made
Each ScoliBrace is manufactured with computer aided manufacture (CAM). Using cutting edge central manufacturing techniques, this ensures accuracy in production and consistency of quality throughout the manufacturing process.
Made from a lightweight, durable material and padded for patient comfort, the ScoliBrace opens and closes at the front making it easy to wear and remove without assistance. There are a variety of unique colors and patterns available for patients to personalize the look of their brace.
In most cases ScoliBrace uses an over-corrective approach to guide the body into a posture that is the opposite of the way the scoliosis has positioned it. By putting the body posture in this over-corrected position, it forces the spine to straighten up using the concept of spinal coupling i.e. as the body moves into the opposite position, the spine moves with it towards that position achieving the maximum straightening within the limits of the spine’s flexibility.
Research supports the use of specialized bracing, like ScoliBrace, as an effective non-surgical treatment for scoliosis. ScoliBrace is also shown to be effective for treatment outcomes when combined with scoliosis specific exercise programs, such as ScoliBalance.
