Abstract

The purpose of the back brace insert for scoliosis is to provide comfort into the daily lives of people who suffer from scoliosis. This brace is able to stop the hard brace from cutting into people wearing them, meanwhile not disturbing the effective integrity of the brace after the insert to determine its effectiveness. Each tester will do a few simple tasks and then they will score their comfort while doing the tasks on a 1 to 15 scale. The data will be collected by taking the average scores from both tests (with and without the brace insert) and then seeing which had the most comfort. The data will prove the insert successful if an average shows that the testers felt more comfort while performing the tasks. If the insert improved comfort then the overall goal will be achieved.
