iO™ Monitor

Empowered Scoliosis Girl

When it comes to Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis treatment, bracing significantly decreases curve progression and minimizes the likelihood of surgery. But when patients do not comply with brace-wearing schedules, it can impair the treatment’s effectiveness. 

​​​That’s why, as part of the BEME Program​, Hanger developed the Intelligent Orthotics™ (iO™) compliance monitor. This device captures and stores data that helps you adjust treatment recommendations as patients’ spinal curvature changes over time.


  • The discreet iO™ monitor is seamlessly fabricated into the scoliosis brace.
  • Physicians set wear-time targets, an​d download device data during each visit. 
  • Reports are generated on how many hours per day the brace is worn and if wear-time targets are met. 
  • Using this information, wearing schedules can be adjusted appropriately.


  • Readings are taken every 32 minutes, and the device can store up to six months of data.
  • iO™ monitors utilize the same thermal technology used in the Thermobrace study1, which showed a real compliance rate of 91.7%.
