SRS Research Grant Outcome Symposium

Dr. John Vorhies presented the following topic at the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) Research Grant Outcome Symposium Saturday, March 5th: Leveraging Embedded Haptic Sensor Technology for Force Vector Mapping in Orthoses for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. 

An SRS grant was awarded to Dr. Vorhies and Dr. Carla Pugh for the project: “Flexible Pressure Sensors for Tracking Scoliosis Bracing in Pediatric Patients” and is in collaboration with the T.E.C.I. (Technology Enabled Clinical Improvement) research study. The purpose of this research is to develop a cloth sensor for measuring forces applied by scoliosis braces on pediatric patients. The presentation provided updates on the project so far, as the research team is continuing to test the cloth sensor. You can view the recording here:
