First dynamic spine brace -- robotic spine exoskeleton -- characterizes spine deformities

20:00 EDT 8 Apr 2018 | AAAS

(Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science) Columbia Engineering researchers have invented a new Robotic Spine Exoskeleton, a dynamic spine brace that enabled them to conduct the first study that looks at in vivo measurements of torso stiffness and characterizes the three-dimensional stiffness of the human torso. This device may solve current bracing limitations and lead to new treatments for children with spine deformities such as idiopathic scoliosis and kyphosis.
