Muscle Training Principles
The spinal deformation of scoliosis patients means that their back muscle activity is usually imbalanced.
Maintaining incorrect posture for a lengthy period of time may increase muscle imbalance, or even cause the progression of the spinal curvature.
The muscle training program offered here uses sEMG to determine the level of back muscle activity, which includes 4 pairs of back muscles.
Participants will watch an animation, which would only play if the EMG signals correspond to the correct muscle activity. Participants can therefore learn to control their back muscle activity to improve the muscle balance and control the progression of their spinal curvature.
