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 252 patients* (correct as of 31st January 2024) taking part, across 22 hospitals in the UK. Patients are completing their follow-ups every 6 months, and so far 17 patients have reached the end of their brace treatment. Thank you to all of the patients and their families for continuing to support this study! Further details about BASIS and how to take part, can be found below and on the other pages on this site.
