Robotic Brace Characterizes Spine Deformities, Dynamically Adjusts Therapy

Engineers at Columbia University have developed a dynamic spine brace, called the Robotic Spine Exoskeleton (RoSE), that can measure the stiffness of the human torso in three dimensions and apply corrective pressure in patients with spine deformities, such as idiopathic scoliosis.

Children with spinal deformities typically wear braces to help corr (Read more...)
