The SpineCor brace is designed to provide a three-dimensional corrective force to the spine. It aims to halt the progression of scoliosis and potentially reduce the curvature. It consists of a pelvic belt, thoracic bands, shoulder straps, and a dynamic corrector, all connected by tensioned elastic bands. The brace is worn directly on the skin and is generally more flexible and less restrictive than traditional rigid braces.
Clinical Studies for SpineCor
Several clinical studies have investigated the effectiveness of the SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System.
Here are a few examples:
a. A retrospective study published in the journal “Scoliosis and Spinal Disorders” in 2016 evaluated the outcomes of 33 adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients treated with the SpineCor brace. The results showed a significant reduction in the average Cobb angle, indicating a positive effect on the scoliotic curve.
b. Another study published in the “European Spine Journal” in 2011 examined the long-term results of SpineCor treatment in 89 patients with idiopathic scoliosis. The researchers found that the brace effectively prevented curve progression and improved the spinal alignment over a five-year follow-up period.
c. A study published in the “Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics” in 2008 compared the SpineCor brace to a traditional rigid brace. The results suggested that the SpineCor brace was more effective in reducing the progression of scoliosis curves. It also provides greater patient compliance and satisfaction.
A systematic review published by the Cochrane Collaboration in 2015 analyzed available studies on various bracing systems for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
The review concluded that there is limited evidence to support the effectiveness of the SpineCor brace compared to other braces, and further high-quality research is needed to draw definitive conclusions.
Pediatric Scoliosis Treatments
Early detection and treatment with the SpineCor scoliosis brace for children provide the best opportunity to fix pediatric scoliosis before spinal surgery is required. Learn more about the goals, systems, and case studies for pediatric scoliosis.
Adult Scoliosis Treatments
The process of treatment in adults is similar to bracing children except the goal is support and cessation of chronic pain. Learn more about the systems, and case studies for adult scoliosis.
