Back Brace


Bracing is the common treatment for moderate idiopathic scoliosis (IS) during adolescence. Accurate evaluation of patients’ adherence to treatment with scoliosis brace usage has been a challenge for physicians treating patients with IS. The inability to accurately measure compliance has resulted in low brace efficacy.

The number of wear hours is subjective and difficult to verify due to reliance on patient recall, with the possibility of false reporting.
