The year 2019 is coming to an end and we can look back on a section full of interesting encounters, new experiences and knowledge. Given the multitude of experiences in the business areas in which Ortholutions is active, we did an interview with Jenny Schmid and Dino Gallo, both CEO and founders of the company.
During the scoliosis treatment, the treatment team – orthopedic technicians, physiotherapists and MDs – as well as scoliosis patients and their families are responsible. It is important that all knowledge about fit and function of a scoliosis orthosis and control appointments are followed.
A corset shirt made of functional fibers is worn under the scoliosis corset to protect the skin, because for scoliosis patients constantly good skin climate is important.
To treat high thoracic (double- / triple-major) scoliosis, there are various technical and therapeutic approaches. Derived from physiotherapy exercises, Ortholutions developed the D-modifier component for the Original RSC® Brace.
In Germany, there are approximately 1,100 to 1,400 Scapula Alata patients each year. The shoulder disease almost exclusively affects adults. The treatment method is successful in combination of saBrace corset and physiotherapy.
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.
