JERUSALEM -- Hadasit, the technology transfer company of Hadassah University Hospitals, announced today the first set of data from its ongoing clinical trial of the Derotation Brace for the treatment of scoliosis, a complex 3-D deformation of the trunk, spine and rib cage.
The Derotation Brace is the only dynamic treatment for scoliosis in development today," said Dr.
The Derotation Brace employs a dynamic derotation mechanism to create neutral rotational forces that reverse the rotation of the spine and help correct the scoliosis.
