Scoliosis, the abnormal twisting of the spine, affects millions of people around the world and is most common in children. Now, a 3D-printed back brace has been created to help prevent further curvature of the spine while looking and feeling more comfortable.
Designed by Studio Bitonti, the Align by UNYQ is a customisable and “breathable” brace that aims to be stylish, use fewer materials, and can be worn for multiple hours a day.
The Align is also able to help patients track their personal data, which can be used in the treatment process. To do this an Intel chip, said to be the size of a button, has been included in the brace.
