Restore balance in back muscle activity and control spinal deformity


An Innovative Tank-Top with Biofeedback System for Adolescents with Early Scoliosis

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is the most common 3-dimensional spinal deformity in youths. An innovative tank-top, which features a biofeedback system with multiple sensors, has been invented to provide back muscle and customized posture training for scoliosis patients.

In addition, the tank-top is used with a specially designed mobile app which records the user’s postures in real time and provides instant feedback. With progressive biofeedback training, users gradually learn to maintain upright torso posture by controlling back muscles. The data is also uploaded to cloud storage for tracking and analysis. The tank-top can therefore motivate patients to take an active part in improving their movement coordination and daily posture as well as controlling their spinal deformity.
