The ScoliSMART Activity Suit is specifically designed to retrain and activate muscles in your spine. This both supports your posture and promotes muscle coordination, resulting in reduction and/or stabilization of your curve.
The ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit works by engaging the natural torque pattern of the body to create new muscle memory. It helps the spine unwind while stabilizing asymmetrical muscles to reduce spinal curvature without direct pressure or pain. The ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit does not restrict normal activity and wearing the device for just a few hours a day has been shown to improve function and reduce pain.
The ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit is engineered to mimic the effect of resistance training on the spine. Every step taken activates the muscles in the spine while the suit helps to reprogram the firing and coordination of those muscles. With each step, posture improves and scoliosis becomes more stable.
Unlike traditional scoliosis braces, which often restrict natural movement, the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit is comfortable and non-restrictive. It can be worn all day, every day, either over or under clothing. Not only is it far more comfortable than standard scoliosis braces, it is much more effective.
In a study published in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine:
79% of adult patients achieved a curve correction of 6˚ or greater
Adult patients achieved a 54% reduction in pain
Adult patients wearing a suit achieved an average scoliosis correction of 10 degrees
When compared to surgical treatments, the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit offers longer-lasting results and is completely non-invasive. It is also virtually risk-free. Scoliosis surgery, meanwhile, is extremely invasive and riddled with potential complications. Spinal surgery to stabilize adult scoliosis often fails to eliminate pain or improve breathing function, and many patients report zero improvements in their quality of life post-operation. Scoliosis surgery also risks implant failure, nerve damage, chronic pain, and infection.
In short, the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit is a safer, superior way to treat adult scoliosis.
It is 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 the energy of human’s natural movement to create new muscle memory. This new muscle memory reduces and stabilizes asymmetrical muscle firing, thereby reducing the 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.
