My Korsi / Scoliosis brace

My Korsi
My Korsi

The scoliosis brace “my Korsi” was generated exemplary for the correction of a three dimensional distortion of the human spine.
My Korsi is the first brace that is made by laser-sintering. The originally purely orthopedic corset becomes a product, which can be designed individually by each patient. Therefore it will be certainly rather worn consistantly.
A breathable textile is applied under the thin thermoplastic, to improve the comfort;
integrated sensors in the textile measure the pressure and the time of wearing.
Filmy, noiseless nano hook-and-loop fastener were integrated homogeneously in the corset.
