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 98 patients* (correct as of 10th January 2023) taking part, with 18 hospitals accepting patients within the UK, and another 3 hospitals joining soon. Some of the patients who joined at the beginning are now starting to have their 1 year follow up visits. Further details about the study and how to take part can be found below and on the other pages on this site.
