We want to use our platform here at Scolios-us to further research in the scoliosis community. In order to achieve this goal, we need your help and input! Below are the ongoing studies that need your help! The description of each study can be found to the right of the photos.
The Relationship Between Self-Esteem and Orthotic Treatment Compliance in Children with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
Purpose: The purpose of the study is to determine if there is a relationship between self-esteem of patients with AIS and compliance with orthotic treatment.
What would I have to do? Complete a 5-10 minute google forms survey after their parents complete a consent form also on google forms.
Do I qualify? To participate in the study, you must have a diagnosis of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), have been wearing a back brace for at least 3 months, be between 10 and 17 years old, and have permission from your parents.
How to Participate: Your parent can go to the following link and fill out the consent form which will then give the link to the child’s survey - https://forms.gle/WcvCoz8ni5q75Cmu5

Understanding Adherence in Braced Scoliosis Patients
Purpose: We want to understand why some young people wear their brace for more hours, and some wear it less. We hope the results would help other young people on bracing in the future.
What would I have to do? Participate in a 1-hour interview over Teams
