SPS now offers the low-profile, lightweight Medi Spinomed spinal orthosis for vertebral extension in osteoporosis.

"Backpack" styling offers easy application. The thoracic area is unobstructed; abdominal breathing and shoulder/arm movements are unrestricted. An evidence-based study published in the March 2004 American Journal of PM&R showed that Spinomed:

  • Strengthens back extensors by 73 percent;
  • Strengthens abdominal flexors by 58 percent;
  • Reduces the angle of kyphosis by 11 percent;
  • Reduces body sway by 25 percent; and
  • Decreases pain by 38 percent.

Indications include osteoporotic bone collapse in the thoracic and lumbar spine, juvenile Scheuermanns disease, and hyperkyphosis with chronic back pain.
