Laser Scanning and Scoliosos

This website is a support resource for people affected by scoliosis – a condition where the spine is curved from side to side. To help correct this doctors came up with the dynamic derotation brace (DDB) in 1982.

It is encouraging to report that laser scanning is replacing the use of a cast mold to determine the correct dimensions of the DDB so that each patient is properly fitted with the PVC brace.

Another example of the potential medical benefits of laser scanning.
