Scolioscreen

The Scolioscreen device is a tool that allows for all smartphones of 155mm and less, with or without a protective case, to be used to screen for spinal deformities. The scolioscreen is made from a durable material and has a specially adapted base which is designed to conform to ones back – which is an important aspect to achieving an accurate measurement.

The scolioscreen allows all smartphones to screen for spinal deformities

  The Scolioscreen APP, available on iTunes, is a stand-alone software that was specifically developed to allow the user to measure ones angle of trunk rotation. The Scolioscreen device can be combined with any APP available on iTunes or Google Play for measuring inclination such as the Scolioscreen APP.

    The Scolioscreen device:
    1. Enables you to measure someones’s deformity at home.
    2. Allows you to screen scoliotic curves early.
    3. Works with other applications available on iTunes or Google Play.
    4. One size fits all types of cellular phones of 155mm and less.

The Scolioscreen APP and the Scolioscreen device are sold separately.

Scolioscreen method

Scoliosis affects 2-3% of the population, or an estimated 7 million people in the United States, and there is no cure.   Scoliosis impacts infants, adolescents, and adults worldwide with little regard to race or socio-economic status. The primary age of onset for scoliosis is 10-15 years old, occurring equally among both genders. However, females are eight times more likely to progress to a curve magnitude that requires treatment.

Are the Scolioscreen APP and Solioscreen device certified products?   The Scolioscreen APP and device are the only APP and device for screening of spinal deformities that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States (FDA) and having the CE mark of approval in Europe. The Scolioscreen device is a Class I medical devices in the Canada and US where Spinologics is registered and so is the Scolioscreen. The Scolioscreen APP and device are now widely used and reviewed by associations and medical institutions. The following links will help you to know more about the Scolioscreen :


What smartphones does this work with?   The scolioscreen device is sized to securely fit all smartphones on the market today <155mm. The scolioscreen APP is currently only available on itunes but will soon be offered for Android. If you have an Android phone, you can still use the Scoliscreen device with complementary Apps such as Scoliometer or ScolioTrack.


Why get the Scolioscreen device?   In a blinded clinical trial at a leading research hospital for scoliosis it was shown that using the scolioscreen device provides accurate results whereas using simply a smartphone without the scolioscreen device does not.

Another study published on Scolioscreen device

Posted on 04/8/15

A new article was published in the Scoliosis journal reporting the accuracy of the Scolioscreen device.  A study conducted at the University of Alberta used angle blocks to evaluate the accuracy and variability of the Scolioscreen device and found them relevant to measure the truck deformation on scoliotic patients. The Scolioscreen APP was employed for this study.   Read the full abstract which was presented at the 10th meeting of the International Research Society of Spinal Deformities (IRSSD 2014).
