Teenagers are uniquely sensitive about their looks and standing amongst peers. They want to fit in, but they also want to be special. They want to be accepted by the group, while being appreciated for being themselves.
During the teen years, we form the individuality we’ll live with in adulthood. It’s a crucial moment in terms of developing a sense of self and establishing the confidence we’ll need to fully exploit our natural aptitudes and skills.
That’s why bracing treatment, historically, has been such a therapeutic roadblock for teens with scoliosis. 8 times more likely to see a curvature which requires medical intervention, girls are especially concerned with their appearance, so the way braces look is a vital factor. Teens may feel even more alienated and unsure of themselves when wearing a brace to school.
But the 3-D Printed Brace brace treatment in California represents an evolution in bracing for teens with scoliosis. Boys are just as unsure of themselves as girls are at this stage. The exceptional design of this brace responds to a demand for improved aesthetics because research hasn’t adhered nearly enough importance in the design of scoliosis-specific braces – until now.
Standing Out In an Undesirable Way
There has only been negligible change in the design of braces for over 5 years. Medical professionals look for the most efficient solution, so treating patients to acknowledge self-image and social realities has been largely ignored. But with teenagers, these factors are so important.
Not exactly fashionable (as well as uncomfortable and ungainly), traditional braces work against their own purpose. Patients rarely wear the brace for the daily period required for curve mitigation because of this.
The scoliosis braces of the past make teenagers feel conspicuous in an undesirable way. And so, the 3-D Printed Brace brace treatment in California offers them a much-needed and meaningful evolution in design.
The 3-D Printed Brace – the Evolution Scoliosis Bracing
The prototype for the 3-D Printed Brace was created with a 3D printer. Featured in online design outlets as a leading example of technology in the service of superior healthcare, the 3-D Printed Brace brace treatment offers young people a brace they can love.
Created using a lattice design, the 3-D Printed Brace consists of 75% of the material traditional braces are manufactured from. Allowing the wearer to bend from the waist, Unyq brings patients enhanced mobility – something traditional braces haven’t been able to do.
Modules built into the brace collect data which is uploaded to an app. Wearers can follow the progress of bracing treatment, individualizing the experience of wearing 3-D Printed Brace and empowering patients.
