Biofeedback Posture Training Service for Patients with Scoliosis
To address the issues of scoliosis and posture problems, Active Biotechnology has developed a personalized training protocol and a body mapping tank-top for adolescents with early scoliosis.
The tank-top is equipped with inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors that are synchronized with pre-recorded surface electromyographic (sEMG) signals.
This smart garment can provide tailored pain-free posture training for adolescents with scoliosis.
The design maximizes wear comfort and the IMUs are accurately positioned.
Therefore, scoliosis patients can wear the tank-top for a long period of time without any negative effects on their quality of life.
A smartphone or computer application is also available to detect and record body posture information in real time.
This smart tank-top can motivate patients to take a more active role in managing their scoliosis, thus effectively improving their control and coordination of movement and daily posture, and reducing the future likelihood of bracing or surgical treatment.
