The BASIS Study
We use back braces to treat scoliosis because they can stop the curve to the spine getting bigger and reduce the need for surgery. The BASIS Study is trying to find out which type of back brace is best for treating children and young people with scoliosis.
The BASIS study currently has 71* patients (*correct as of 31st October 2022) taking part, with 17 hospitals accepting patients within the UK. We hope that a few more hospitals will also be joining us in the next few months. The number of patients agreeing to take part in the BASIS study has increased as more hospitals join us, scroll down for further information about how you can take part too!
