    The Braist Study (& Scolios Research Funding)

    The purpose of the Braist Study is: to compare the risk of curve progression in adolescents with AIS who wear a brace versus those who do not and to determine whether there are reliable factors that can predict the usefulness of bracing for a particular individual with AIS.

    Concluding data should be available for analysis in August 2010. The study is limited to the TSLO type bracing method. If I am reading the information about this study correctly, it appears that compliance will involve some pretty amazing monitoring (Wear time measured using a temperature monitor).

    Anyway ... the official government web link below offers a lot of information about all this (including email contacts) for us to monitor as time goes by.

    Principal Investigator: Stuart L. Weinstein, MD University of Iowa
    Study Director: Lori A. Dolan, PhD University of Iowa
