Treating Scoliosis Earlier via Wearable Electronics
A large percentage of scoliosis patients are in the 10-25º range and are subject to observation and follow up. However, this is the time when the spine is better capable of adopting a spatial configuration with potential for stopping progression.
It is not recommended to brace these patients given the burdens of bracing therapy, but what if we could train ambulatory posture without such burden?… What if we could correct posture in daily activity using a smart garment?
This is the motivation that originated Asana Weartech and thus, we are working hard on developing the most accurate and convenient textile technologies for general-purpose 3D monitoring of spinal alignment that can be worn discreetly and painlessly under clothes.
