Dr. Walter Salubro:
And then, so in order for someone to acquire such a brace who they go to to get this kind of brace.

Dr. Jeb McAviney:
So you can only go to a qualified ScoliBrace provider. It’s a custom made brace that involves a three-dimensional scan and all the clinicians that we work with go through a rigorous training program. And you can find those people on If you go to to find a provider, you’ll be able to find a suitably qualified provider in your area.

Dr. Walter Salubro:
And I’m looking forward to doing the training this June. So I can also become a provider for ScoliBrace because we want to do way more scoliosis work in our office as well.

Dr. Jeb McAviney:
We can’t wait to have you on board.

Dr. Walter Salubro:
I can wait. I want to show one of the pictures here of you have a patient, a young patient wearing a traditional brace, and then I’ll show the opposite image as well. And then, and then the one wearing the corrective brace, the ScoliBrace. So let’s talk us through this one here.

Dr. Jeb McAviney:
If you, if you look at the X-ray on the left, you can see that this patient has a pretty significant scoliosis. This patient is a, I think he’s an seven year old boy at this time, and this is what we call juvenile scoliosis. Juvenile scoliosis has a very high risk of progression because that curve is already developed before the main growth, but that growth in adolescents where we usually see it. But this is a really, really serious case. It’s not good enough the hold this curve, if you don’t reduce this curve and this curve will get out of control during the adolescent growth spurt. So he went to a hospital I won’t name the hospital, but I’m in Australia and they put this brace on and you can see there was very little change, a little bit of change in the top of the curve, that zero change at the bottom, the parents contacted us and send us the expertise. And they explained, you know, obviously being in juvenile curve, this is not good enough. And they said, well, we want to try something different. So they were from a different part of Australia. They flew over to us and then he spent a week with us. We did some of the rehabilitation work, and then we put him in a ScoliBrace. The the next pictures, him in the ScoliBrace. On the left is the hospital maids, traditional symmetrical brace. The one on the right is the ScoliBrace. And these x-rays were actually taken on the same day. These are directly comparable. So when we say that our braces are corrective, we truly mean that. We mean that the goal is always to correct the spine in the brace and the hope is to correct the spine out of the brace. Now there are sometimes limitations. The patient is compliant. They are those types of things, but in general, we achieve outcomes that are not just stabilization, particularly in adolescents and children. Early enough and we get a good embrace correction and the opportunity to actually crack the spine is there.
