Tagged with: | | | | |

South Korean medtech company said that it has developed a vest-like wearable hybrid scoliosis brace called Spinamic.

According to VNTC, Spinamic has the benefits of both traditional rigid and soft-type scoliosis braces.

The new hybrid scoliosis brace can be used by with mild scoliotic symptoms and also by neuromuscular patients who face difficulties wearing rigid plastic braces.

Spinamic is said to lower the side effects from conventional braces like discomfort and psychological stress, thereby the quality of life for patients without compromising the therapeutic impacts of stiff braces.

As per VNTC, its vest-like wearable hybrid scoliosis brace uses a three-point pressure system like rigid braces and consists of dials to adjust the pressure strength according to the improvement in the patient’s condition.

Medical professionals can customize the hybrid scoliosis brace as patients grow and also remove its parts to wash them with ease.

The aesthetic design of Spinamic is said to lower the visual burden on the patient and offers psychological stability and comfort to maximize compliance to meet the required wearing time of 18 hours a day.

A source from VNTC said: “While a conventional rigid brace takes more than two weeks to manufacture, Spinamic can be immediately customized and delivered based on clinical X-ray data.

“By gathering data on growth factors and spinal conditions as well as x-ray images, hospitals and parents can check the patient’s treatment progress. We also plan to develop a software system that allows hospital to apply tailored treatment program to each patient through real-time monitoring of pressure.”
