Spino Modulation has designed the MIScoli™ System, an innovative vertebral body fixation (VBT) device to treat scoliosis in young adolescents. The focus is on idiopathic scoliosis (scoliosis with an unknown cause), to reduce deformity and prevent its worsening in growing children/adolescents.
Why we invested ?
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a common and under-diagnosed condition in adolescents worldwide. It is estimated that 2-3% of the population has some degree of AIS. Spinal fusion is generally recommended once the patient has completed growth and is not appropriate for children/adolescents. (VBT) is a less invasive alternative to spinal fusion has the potential to disrupt treatment paradigms because it can be performed earlier in the patient’s history.
The MIScoli™ System has the potential to lead to shorter hospital stays, less restrictive on growth and mobility and no long-term pain.
