ScoliSMART Activity Suit
What is the ScoliSMART Activity Suit (SAS)?
The patent-pending ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit is a lightweight neoprene support that works with your body’s natural movements creating new muscle memory while actively reducing and stabilizing adult scoliosis. Unlike rigid scoliosis braces, the ScoliSMART™ Activity Suit has been designed through advanced engineering and human biomechanical analysis in order to stimulate and engage deep layer spinal muscles while you perform normal activities of daily living. Research has demonstrated that adults who wore the activity suit for just a few hours daily for 6 months reported improved function, decreased pain, and measurable X-Ray improvement.
How is it different from a brace?
Braces, including Spine Cor, are designed to artificially push or pull the spinal curve straighter. The result is a temporary and passive approach that leads to muscle weakening over time. The ScoliSMART Activity Suit has been designed through advanced engineering and human biomechanical analysis in order to stimulate and engage deep layer spinal muscles while you perform normal activities of daily living.
What activities can or can't I do while wearing the ScoliSMART Activity Suit?
There are no restrictions while wearing the ScoliSMART Activity Suit. Patients are encouraged to avoid activities known to aggravate their condition and the ScoliSMART Activity Suit is not recommended for use while swimming.
What type of X-Ray do I need?
One where the doctor can clearly see your scoliosis, the medical term is a standing scoliosis X-Ray. There should also be a visual indicator of the direction on the X-Ray - normally shown as a R or L on the image.
My X-Rays are more than 5 years old, what can I do?
You can obtain an x-ray from your general practitioner or chiropractor.
Why do I have to upload my Driver's License?
To ensure the person receiving the approval to purchase is an adult and consistent with the other clinical information provided.
Why do you require a full-body image in addition to my X-Rays?
To evaluate posture and correlate with the measurements and x-ray ensuring proper fit and set up.
What is the process for getting the SAS?
Gather the necessary information requested including a full-body image, scoliosis x-ray, and driver's license. Once reviewed by a doctor an approval to purchase will be sent to the email address provided for you to complete your purchase.

How the ScoliSMART Activity Suit Works
The ScoliSMART Activity Suit has been designed to create a resistance training effect on your spine. Each time you take a step, the suit activates muscles in your spine, which helps reprogram muscle firing and coordination. By triggering a response every time you take a step, your scoliosis and posture will improve and become more functional and stable. Often, when muscles coordinate better, patients experience better movement and less pain.
Provides excellent support for the thoracic spine and rib cage.
Provides excellent support for lumbar spine and pelvic tilt/rotation.
Creates resistance between the torso and hips which helps guide the untwisting muscle activity.
Causes the resistance between the body and leg creating increased muscle activity in the spine.
