It's Not a Brace!
A dynamic ScoliSMART™ exercise program used in combination with outpatient care.
Designed to work with the natural torque pattern of human locomotion, the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit is the latest innovation in scoliosis treatment.
New ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit harnesses energy of human’s natural movement to create new muscle memory. This new muscle memory reduces and stabilizes asymmetrical muscle firing thereby reducing risk of curve progression and helping the spine unwind naturally, never forced.
With each step, the body resists the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit’s force, changing the muscle’s stored energy and firing sequence. Like muscles, the spine adapts in terms of time and need according to demand.
Unlike bracing, the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit does not use direct pressure on the peaks of the curves to force correction as forcing correction does not induce new muscle memory.
Available by prescription only.
How the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit Works
The ScoliSMART Activity Suit has been designed to create a resistance training effect on your spine. So each time you take a step the suit activates muscles in your spine which helps to reprogram muscle firing and coordination of muscles. By triggering a response every time you take a step, your scoliosis and posture will improve and become more functional and stable. Often when muscles coordinate better, patients experience better movement and less pain.
Provides excellent support for the thoracic spine and rib cage.
Provides excellent support for lumbar spine and pelvic tilt/rotation
Causes the resistance between the body and leg creating increased muscle activity in the spine.
Creates resistance between the torso and hips which helps guide the untwisting muscle activity.
