This trial is evaluating whether Immediate in-brace correction: Optimized Brace will improve 1 primary outcome and 4 secondary outcomes in patients with Scoliosis. Measurement will happen over the course of 5 minutes after brace fitting.
This trial requires 58 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Immediate In-brace Correction: Optimized Brace is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Treatment of scoliosis depends on the type of curve it presents, the age of the patient, and whether or not there is neurological compromise. Common treatments of scoliosis include bracing, physiotherapy, and nonsurgical options like exercises, massage, and electrical stimulation.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"About 2.4 million people will be diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis and about 2.9 million people will have scoliosis related to a known skeletal disorder. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery estimates there will be 27,500 new cases of scoliosis in 2018. scoliosis -patient.gov\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The signs and symptoms of scoliosis are similar to other spinal curvature anomalies such as kyphosis or lordosis. Each is most obvious on a curve of the upper thoracic region. Scoliosis may cause a variety of symptoms, many of which are non-specific and may mimic other medical conditions such as neck pain, fever, or a head injury. Patients with scoliosis are more likely to suffer other medical conditions that arise when a curved spinal region is used during posture, posture in the kneeling position, or postures involving rotation beyond 90°." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Overall, these children underwent successful management of their scoliosis. Treatment of scoliosis is often a collaborative effort between surgeon, rehabilitation physician and (or) physiatrist. In the short term, careful follow-up and monitoring of these children is important to ensure that the natural history of the disease is followed." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The term scoliosis is used to denote a complex, multi-disciplinary clinical entity. The name has undergone significant evolution from early observations that the scoliosis was a curve to its current usage in a descriptive manner. It should be emphasised that scoliosis is not solely a clinical entity, rather it is associated with many disorders and should always be considered along the context." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Scoliosis is a multifaceted disorder with an extraordinarily diverse set of abnormalities and etiologies. Early detection and prompt diagnosis are essential to provide appropriate treatment, to minimize disability and to reduce deformity progression. The following cases were chosen to represent some of the various causes of scoliosis." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The treatment approaches that are currently employed in the management of children with idiopathic scoliosis are varied and evolving as newer scientific information regarding the epidemiology and pathophysiology of scoliosis are made available. Further, evidence-based guidelines and recommendations are evolving regarding the specific role for orthopaedic surgeons in the scoliosis surgical program." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Although optimized brace works without any extra effort in the first month of its application, it deteriorates with time, particularly by rotation. This effect is more pronounced in patients younger than 15 years, who often exhibit progressive scoliosis. Therefore, early application of the device seems beneficial, and the benefit seems to be maintained after the initial 1 month." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"This was the first clinical trial to demonstrate a patient specific brace design that was an appropriate immediate correction brace using patient anthropometric findings to optimize post-operative results. Results from a recent clinical trial demonstrated that the results of the brace design is comparable to surgical results when used prior to the surgery. The advantages of using immediate post-operative correction brace is to improve patient compliance with the brace. It also allows further evaluation of brace design and surgical techniques to improve results in the long term." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Subjects who have a scoliosis of 10° or less with no known or suspected neurological dysfunction are most likely to qualify for trial enrollment, while older children aged 5 years or older are not candidates for enrollment in large trials if they show progressive scoliosis or exhibit neurological dysfunction. The trial database may be an effective means of sharing information and conducting research." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The authors believe it can improve compliance of patient as they will understand more about brace treatment and have the support of healthcare team to take good preventive measures. The authors were not allowed to choose their own brace treatment. If authors want to make some other data combination with the existing research and data it would be great" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The following are the various pathologies implicated in its development as reported in the literature. They include a congenital one, but also neuromuscular causes, like cerebral palsy, or chronic low [back pain](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/back-pain): ankylosing spondylitis, which is a combination of several diseases that result in a painful deformity of the spinal column in a similar way as scoliosis." - Anonymous Online Contributor
