Welcome to Scan Scoliosis.com
We are the ONLY computer aided design facility that uses the LERMAN RISSER SCAN measurement technique. This technique of bracing SCOLIOSIS is revolutionary in the sense that each patient is carefully evaluated creating an exact measurement model that asymmetrically applies forces to each component of the curve while maintaining cranial/sacral balance. The concept of curve correction and cranial/sacral balance is critical because without balance the curve can increase. Also, we have incorporated a breathable liner resulting in a brace that has: decreased shear forces on the body.
The properties of our LERMAN RISSER SCAN TLSO provides results that no other system currently provides. Other CAD based systems approximate corrections with the use of software that cannot predict the correctable response of the SCOLIOSIS being treated. As a result, our technique has changed the science of bracing SCOLIOSIS patients making treatment more successful and more comfortable.
The breathable liner along with the total contact surface area being so accurate are the reasons for the increased brace compliance and comfort. This along with our LERMAN RISSER SCAN asymmetrical cranial/sacral balance measurement has resulted in a 90% TREATMENT SUCCESS RATE!! This is greater than any other published bracing system.
In the early days of SCOLIOSIS treatment, Dr RISSER began to apply SCOLIOSIS casts to patients on a frame that eliminated gravity and provided traction on the body. His technique used a turnbuckle system within the casts he applied to achieve his corrections. We have taken the RISSER casting frame and applied it to CAD scanning technology. We have also advanced the method by realizing that a three dimensional analysis was needed to de-rotate as well as laterally correct each curve.
At SCANSCOLIOSIS.COM we have taken the proven RISSER casting method and improved the science and accuracy of this method. We are now seeing patients at our practice located in Beverly Hills, California.
