New Robotic Spine Exoskeleton (RoSE) Could Help Treat Spine Deformities

Robotic Spine Exoskeleton

RoSE is a dynamic spine brace that characterizes the 3 dimensional stiffness of the human torso.  It identifies and treats spinal deformities. The system consists of 12-degree-of-freedom supervised via 12 motors. Spinal deformities, like kyphosis and idiopathic scoliosis, are abnormalities of formation and alignment of the curvature in the spine. There are more than 4 million cases ...
