Determining the Cobb angle using the scoliometer is a useful technique for reducing significantly the X-ray exposure to scoliosis patients.
A common question in the treatment of various forms of scoliosis is: How is the musculature affected by wearing a brace?
The Risser sign was developed by Joseph Risser in scoliosis therapy as a diagnostic tool for determining bone maturity with an X-ray. The different stages give conclusions about the expected skeletal growth.
Why a blog about orthopedic technology? Ortholutions has created this blog to bridge the gap between orthopedic technicians and physiotherapists, scoliosis patients, their families and doctors. It is an initiative that is open to everyone for information, experiences, comments and discussions.
A scoliosis treatment is successful when, with good wearing time, the curvature of the spine is reduced. Orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic technicians can achieve improvements of more than 50 percent, removing the body around the longitudinal axis by focusing on the three-dimensional torso deformation.
For the orthotic treatment of adult scoliosis patients, the sBrace L abdominal orthosis system is available – Ortholutions’ torso orthosis, which supports sagittal profile and optimizes body statics.
The corset care of scoliosis patients is a responsible task for specialized orthopedic and orthopedic technicians. Above all, improvements can be achieved if three-dimensional trunk deformation is taken into account in the treatment of scoliosis.
The original RSC® restoration system delivered 60.26% major curvature correction to patients. This success in conservative idiopathic scoliosis therapy is defined by teamwork and high-quality, system-made trunk orthoses.
In idiopathic scoliosis treatment, despite extensive information opportunities, many scoliosis patients and relatives are left alone with both the diagnosis and the choice of therapy as well as therapy. The RSC® scoliosis supply system offers safety down to the last detail.
The idiopathic form of scoliosis plays a major role, especially in childhood and adolescence. It is often accidentally discovered by outsiders, such as parents of affected children. Girls are affected much more often.
