To address the issues of scoliosis and posture problems, Active Biotechnology has developed a personalized training protocol and a body mapping tank-top for adolescents with early scoliosis. The tank-top is equipped with inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors that are synchronized with pre-recorded surface electromyographic (sEMG) signals. This smart garment can provide tailored pain-free posture training for adolescents with scoliosis. The design maximizes the wear comfort and the IMUs are accurately positioned. Therefore, scoliosis patients can wear the tank-top for a long period of time without affecting their quality of life. A smart phone or computer application has also been developed for the real-time detecting and recording of body posture information. This smart tank top can motivate patients to take a more active role in managing their scoliosis, thus effectively improving their control and coordination of movement and daily posture, and reducing the future likelihood of bracing or surgical treatment.
