Worldwide Results
 
 
The SpineCor System is currently used in 17 countries and over 100 treatment centres around the world. It has been offered as a bracing option in the KK Women's and Children's Hospital (Singapore) since Jan 2009.

Nearly 725 patients were in-treatment world wide at the time of the last result update in April 2002. The latest available visit for these patients, including all sizes and levels of curves, is presented in Figure 1, which demonstrates an improvement or stabilisation for 89% of the patients in treatment.

(Note: A change in the Cobb angle at the end of treatment and/or the last available visit in reference to the initial visit was utilized to identify a correction (decrease of more than 5° in Cobb angle), a stabilization (change of ±5°), or aggravation (increase of more than 5°).
