The NYRC Smart braceTM is a state-of-the-art, custom-fit scoliosis brace, based on the tried and true principles of Dr Rigo and Cheneau.

The NYRC Smart braceTM seeks to maximize 3 dimensional in-brace correction and balance, based on each patient’s individual anatomy. Understanding that success in bracing depends on both in-brace correction and time in brace (compliance), the NYRC Smart braceTM utilizes a unique “smart strap” which communicates using bluetooth to a custom application allowing real time observation of brace wear and fit.​

What Makes a NYRC BraceTM unique?

3D body surface scanning combined with EOS xrays to allow customized CAD CAM fit of brace

The NYRC BraceTM Maximizes The Correction Of Sagittal Balance, Specific To Your Patient’s Native Pelvic Incidence

The traditional TLSO’s provide an anti-physiological sagittal alignment and balance. Sagittal balance has proved important in adult spinal deformity, maintenance of balance during scoliosis treatment has lasting effects. Each NYRC BraceTM is highly customized to the patient’s native pelvic incidence. This unique feature in combination with other corrective forces applied by the NYRC BraceTM help to improve the sagittal balance.

NYRC braceTM allows dramatically improved 3 dimensional control, with superior rotational correction

Traditional TLSO

“Traditional TLSO does not correct the three dimensional deformity even though it reduces the cobb angle”

“Correction of the spinal deformity in the frontal plane at the expense of a significant reduction of thoracic kyphosis in the sagittal plane”
