Technology: Spinal brace for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis

CEO: Jamie Haggard

Website: www.greensunmedical.com

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis affects up to 3% of the population. For decades, the only treatment has been a rigid plastic brace meant to prevent the progression of the curve, not to correct it. Green Sun Medical is developing a tech-enabled spinal brace that applies reduction forces dynamically, both allowing the patient to move and generate the constant corrective forces necessary to reverse deformity. This is accomplished through tissue remodeling the same way orthodontic braces work on teeth. The Green Sun Medical iPad application will give physicians real-time feedback of the pressure placed on a patient, while also gathering long-term outcome information. Green Sun was the 2016 winner of the MedTech Innovator awards.
