Dynamic Spinal Alignment Brace For People With Scoliosis

How do you deal with the fact that scoliosis is incurable and preventable? 

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person’s spine has a sideways curve.The curve is usually “S” or “C” shaped. In some the degree of curve is stable, while in others it increases over time. Mild scoliosis does not typically cause problems, while severe cases can interfere with breathing. Pain is typically not present.

 

The cause of most cases is unknown but believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Risk factors include other affected family members. It can also occur due to another condition such as muscles spasms, cerebral palsy, Marfan syndrome, and tumors such as neurofibromatosis. Diagnosis is confirmed with plain X-rays. Scoliosis is typically classified as either structural in which the curve is fixed or functional in which the underlying spine is normal.

AIS (Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis) affects 3% of the adolescent population and spinal deformities affect up to 50% of those over age 60. Spinal deformity treatment is slow in developing. Improvements have been made, we have evidence that bracing works, however, we need a brace that the patient will wear.

Green Sun Medical was founded to develop innovative treatments to address Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis and Kyphosis. Team is developing a dynamic orthotic that will aid in correcting these spinal deformities.

Green Sun Medical dynamic brace utilizes the principle of Tissue Remodeling to grow the spine back to a healthier shape.  While the cause of the disease is not understood, Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis begins as a disease of the soft tissue.  The Green Sun Medical Orthotic seeks to prevent this progression by applying the right forces. The human body adapts to constant forces with tissue changing shape and length to restore equilibrium. The Green Sun Medical device is the first orthotic to directly address the complex biomechanics of AIS and could save tens of thousands of children a year from the pain of this deformity and the surgeon’s scalpel.
