The TornadoSuit™ is more comfortable than other braces, provides a similar level of support a rigid braces, while being thin enough to conceal under clothing for day-long wear.
Grand Blanc, MI (PRWEB) February 9, 2011
Megan Strauchman, D.O., Medical Director of the Natural Wellness & Pain Relief Centers in Grand Blanc, announced that her clinic would be one of few nationwide to begin initial fittings of the TornadoSuit™, a brand new scoliosis brace.
The TornadoSuit™ is a new type of functional scoliosis brace that acts upon the spine much differently than conventional rigid-style scoliosis braces. It can be easily concealed underneath clothing, and has shown immediate correction of the scoliosis curvature. The TornadoSuit™ was developed by Dr. Mark Morningstar, who also founded the ARC3D system of scoliosis treatment.
“As an active member of SOSORT, a European based medical society focused on exercise-based treatments for scoliosis, I’ve been fortunate enough to be exposed to all types of scoliosis treatment worldwide. Having seen the benefits and disadvantages of various types of bracing both in the US and abroad, I tried to create a design that incorporated as many of the advantages as possible without the drawbacks of conventional bracing,” says Morningstar. According to preliminary reports, the TornadoSuit™ is more comfortable than other braces, provides a similar level of support as rigid braces, while being thin enough to conceal under clothing for day-long wear.
Because the TornadoSuit™ is still considered experimental, health insurances do not cover its costs. However, because it is in its early testing stages, patients who want to try the TornadoSuit™ can do so at a dramatically reduced cost or free. Currently, the TornadoSuit™ is being tested on children with scoliosis ages 9-18, and adults with scoliosis age 30-60.
