Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis affects 3-4% of the Canadian population, of which about 10% will need a brace treatment during pubertal growth spurt. Our team has developed an innovative conception method for brace design by optimizing for the immediate in-brace correction. The model is customized to each patient. In this project, the investigators will evaluate the effectiveness of this platform's customized treatment and validate its clinical application.
