Robotic Spine Brace for Spine Deformities
Researchers at Columbia Engineering have invented a dynamic spine brace, dubbed Robotic Spine Exoskeleton or RoSE, that can be used to treat spine deformities. Unlike traditional rigid sprine braces, RoSE measures the stiffness of the patient's torso and applies the appropriate amount of corrective pressure. The brace is composed of 3 rings, situated around different spinal regions, a robotic actuator, and twelve motors. The precise placement of corrective pressure allows for the patient to move freely in other directions. Learn more about the RoSE spine brace at Columbia Engineering.
