First dynamic spine brace — robotic spine exoskeleton — characterizes spine deformities

Researchers at Columbia University developed a robotic spine brace that has the potential to help kids with scoliosis and other spinal deformities. The dynamic brace was originally created in order to have a 3D study on the stiffness of the torsos of individuals with deformities. The robotic brace also opens up the possibility of using dynamic treatments such as these to treat scoliosis and other spinal disorders, especially given that current braces are rigid and don’t allow the patients to adapt to the corrections in their spine over the course of treatment.
