The project

Robotic spinal brace. Is a test concept project to help to correct posture. This can be set and used to scoliosis.

My idea is this brace can be used under clothes and give more comfort than a rigid brace.

 

Correct posture

The spinal brace can push and pull at the right place, according the need of the patient.

More comfort

The device allows the movement and correct the wrong postures at the same time. It's more comfortable than a rigid spinal brace.

Multi purpose

The robotic spinal brace can be configured by a orthopedist to help on scoliosis treatment. The force applied can be set.

Progress of this week

The Fab Academy is a very intense course of 20 weeks. We learn digital fabrication principles an practices. Every week, we learn topics like computer aided design, electronics, computer controlled machining, 3d scanning/printing, and so much more.
