A recent story hit the news cycle in regards to two teenage twins who came up with a mobile app to help track the time they were using Scoliosis braces. The two twins are 15 years old and couldn’t find a way to keep track of their time to manage their spinal health, so they came up with an idea to build an app for tracking their time with managed care.
Hadley and Delaney Robertson, two twin sisters from Miami, Florida were diagnosed with Scoliosis back in January 2018 at the age of 12. The two young girls are statistically part of the 2-3% of the American population who are diagnosed with Scoliosis that typically comes on between the ages of 10 and 15 years old, but sometimes makes it’s presence known during infancy.
Hadley had been diagnosed with Idiopathic Scoliosis, which means the curvature of the spine is greater than 20 degrees. The typical treatment for this condition requires the patient to be in a brace for up to 18 hours per day to eliminate the progression of the spine’s abnormalities in curvature. This can be difficult for an active young person due to the heat it generates and limitations in flexibilities because the braces are made of a hard plastic.
The two twins were recently featured on Good Morning America to discuss their condition and the astonishing motivation to come up with something like a mobile app, which is not only helping them to treat their condition, but also has become a valuable tool to others who are experiencing the same issues as they are to track their time in a Scoliosis brace.
The app developed by the Robertson twins is called BraceTrack, and is available in the Apple and Google Play app stores for free. It has seen over 100 downloads so far, and will log your “banked” hours spent in the brace.
