A recent increase in people suffering from text-neck-syndrome and back pain is related to long-term use of computers and smartphones. If one maintains a same posture for a long time, the bent posture may strain muscles and the spine, and in serious cases, it may lead to scoliosis or lateral flexion.
Some people use a brace to treat scoliosis. However, scoliosis brace has shortcomings that it is difficult to wear for a long time and patients give up their brace treatment quickly because the brace itself is hard.
‘FLEXpine’ brace is evaluated as a convenient brace because patient’s motion is less limited due to its flexibility. FLEXpine Orthosis Lab uses state-of-the-art technology to create the customized scoliosis brace. When wearing FLEXpine, it enables active movement by using soft plastic.
Scoliosis brace treatment requires constant exercise with constant wearing. FLEXpine brace can be worn at a school or at a work since it is not visible from the outside. It also has an effect of continuous scoliosis correction while wearing, so even after loosening the brace, strengthened upper body muscles hold the spine.
When patients visit the orthosis lab, they can compare differences between before and after wearing the brace with X-ray images, so that they can check the effect of the brace and learn appropriate stretching method.
Patients can purchase FLEXpine by submitting an X-ray image and body measurement through website (www.flexpine.com) or contact 302-313-1259 (3:00pm-7:00pm.PST. on weekdays) to get more information.
