ScoliBrace® is a unique scoliosis bracing method using the best corrective principles from other current bracing methods. Used in conjunction with 3D imaging software, BraceScan, scans of the patient are taken and the brace is customized to fit their unique measurements and needs.
By positioning the body and spine in their over-corrected or mirror image position, the ScoliBrace can have a super-corrective effect. Curve reductions are achieved in the majority of case, as well as improvements to rib humping, shoulder level and the overall appearance of the body.
3D Designed for a 3D Condition
Scoliosis is a 3 dimensional condition. Effective treatments need to be 3 dimensional too. ScoliBrace is created from 3D body-scans in conjunction with x-rays and posture photos. Each brace is then designed using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and custom made.
ScoliBrace opens and closes at the front making it easy to wear and remove without assistance. There is a variety of colors and patterns available for patients to personalize the look of their brace.
