Effect of the Modified 3-Dimensional Scoliosis Brace on Dynamic Force Application and its Cardio-Respiratory Functions in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS)

Hasan Md Arif Raihan, Poly Ghosh

Background: Scoliosis bracing is the most commonly used non operative treatment plan for the AIS. This study is aimed developing an appropriate spinal orthosis with dynamic 3-D force application in comparison with Boston brace for correction and estimation of cardiorespiratory functions.

Case description and method: 3-D brace was fitted on the case according to a sub classification of the SRS guidelines. Breathe cardio-respiratory data analysis and the metabolic data analysis done through the K4B2, COSMED-Srl-Italy.

Results: The averages observed for without brace Boston and 3-D are different in this case, except for VT and O2- expenditure, where though Boston and 3-D shows significant difference with the normal

Outcomes and conclusion: This case-report indicates that dynamic 3-D orthosis can be a healthier option for AIS as compared to Boston Brace with a positive range of cardio-respiratory functions.
