Cutting-edge scoliosis braces

A new way to brace

From scan to optimal alignment, automatically

Modulate technology

We use cutting-edge AI and 3D printing technology to create better braces for everyone

Modulate Scoliosis Treatment Brace on Mannequin

Ultra-personalized, optimized shape

Every body and spine is different. We automatically generate an accurate 3D digital twin of the patient (including bones and soft tissues) and use it in a generative algorithm to create a shape that’s biomechanically optimized for their unique morphology and scoliosis.

Fully automated custom design

More reliable brace effectiveness

Clinically validated in rigorous trials

Modulate Scoliosis Brace on Model

Innovative design

We optimize flexibility and esthetics to create more comfortable braces that are easier to wear.

Thinner, lighter and airier braces

Easier to wear under clothes or on full display

Improved comfort for extended periods

Digital Twin

Visualize the brace at work

Our 3D digital twin is a validated patient-specific finite element model that simulates how each brace will correct the spine and how the patient will grow inside it.

Features

Strong 3-D printed shell

Multi-materials

Light-weight aeration motifs

Optimized topography

Modulate Scoliosis Treatment Brace

Printed in biocompatible materials, the shell corrects the spine while staying cool to the touch and handling daily wear and tear.

Our flexible sections and attachments, aligned with key anatomical regions, allow better comfort and movement.

Our technology generates honeycomb motifs that allow airflow, making the brace lighter and more comfortable for extended wear.

The orthosis shape is generated to optimize 3D correction and growth modulation, for better clinical results.

How does it work?

A 3D scan of patients' torso is taken using a standard scanner.

Radiograph + torso 3D Scan

Patients go to one of our partner clinics with their latest radiographs. A 3D scan of their torso is taken using a standard scanner.

Scoliosis Brace Fitting

We generate the patient's digital twin

We use the radiographs and 3D scan to create the patient's own digital twin: a validated, personnalized finite element model. With this, we can simulate how a brace will fit and correct the unique scoliosis curve, predict the patient's modulated growth, and get a sense of how comfortable it will be using metrics like skin pressure maps.

The optimal brace will be as effective as possible while remaining easy to wear.

Optimize

We use the patient's digital twin and our advanced algorithms to find the best brace shape for the patient, optimizing spine correction and comfort. The optimal brace will be as effective as possible while remaining easy to wear.

We 3D print the brace, assemble it, inspect it for quality, and finally ship the brace.

3D print

Our algorithms then add aeration lattices and custom features to the brace to maximize comfort and functionality. We 3D print the shape, assemble it, inspect it for quality, and finally ship the brace to our partner clinics so they can fit it on the patient and ensure its efficacy.

Are Modulate's algorithms clinically validated?

Our digital twin finite element simulation model has been rigorously validated and published following ASME V&V40 standards.[1] Our automated approach has been clinically demonstrated in prospective studies including a randomized controlled trial, showing an average in-brace curve correction of 82%.[2,3] This is equivalent or better than an expert orthotist specialized in scoliosis treatments, while requiring no human manipulation.

Do Modulate's braces need many adjustments to ensure a good fit?

We validate the in-brace fit, correction and growth modulation on the patient's digital twin via finite element simulations, to ensure the best fit possible at delivery. While a few minor adjustments may be necessary, we have shown that significantly fewer are required compared to traditional thermoformed orthoses.

Is Modulate's product available in the US and Canada?

We are planning our official US and Canada launch in 2025. Until that date, we are distributing our braces in limited quantities to partner clinicians and patients. Contact us if you want early access to our technology!
