To address the issues of scoliosis and posture problems, Active Biotechnology has developed a personalized training protocol and a body mapping tank-top that provides tailored pain-free posture training for adolescents with early scoliosis. The tank-top is equipped with inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors that are synchronized with pre-recorded surface electromyography (sEMG) signals. Designed with maximum wear comfort and accurately positioned IMUs, the tank-top can be worn for extended periods of time without negative effects on quality of life. The tank-top works alongside an application – available on smartphones and computers – that monitors body posture information in real-time. Our technology encourages scoliosis patients to take a more active role in improving their control and coordination of movement and daily posture, while reducing the future likelihood of bracing or surgical treatment.
