Researchers develop dynamically articulating exoskeleton for scoliosis patients

AOPA In Advance SmartBrief | Feb 09, 2016

Researchers at Columbia University's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a prototype dynamic exoskeleton that can act as a brace for patients with scoliosis. The device moves with the patient's body while still exerting force on areas of the spine to treat the condition. It is also equipped with sensors to convey information about how much force is required to align the spine and how the spine is responding. IEEE Spectrum online (02/08)
