A meeting of the international SCOLIO-SEE team in Poznań

Bez tytułuOn 2-3 November 2014, another meeting of the European SCOLIO-SEE project took place in Rehasport Clinic. The project has been co-financed by the European Commission as a part of the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development since October 2012.

The main scientific objective of the project is the creation of a new clinical tool, which could be used for monitoring progressive spinal deformation among patients with the help of the SCOLIO-SEE prototype. SCOLIO-SEE is a software and hardware system, the aim of which is to provide doctors with new objective data and new possibilities for the diagnosis and monitoring of scoliosis. In order to achieve this aim, a database will be created gathering radiological data, surface topography measurements and clinical parameters.

The role of Rehasport Clinic is the validation of the software and apparatus for examining children with scoliosis, using a non-invasive method of body surface topography with the help of the SCOLIO-SEE prototype. The scientific team representing the Polish partner of the SCOLIO-SEE project, Rehasport Clinic, is composed of: prof. dr Tomasz Kotwicki, MD, PhD; Edyta Kinel, MD, PhD; Roksana Malak PhD, dr Monika Grygorowicz, Joanna Wiese, MD, PhD; Łukasz Stoliński, M.Sc.; and Mateusz Kozinoga, M.Sc.
