Retraction Note: Soft braces in the treatment of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) – Review of the literature and description of a new approach

The original article was published in Scoliosis 2012 7:11

The Editor-in-Chief and the Medical Editors at BioMed Central have retracted this article [1] because the first author did not fully declare his association with Koob Scolitech, which holds the rights in and to the Spinealite™ brace and has filed for a patent for that brace. Furthermore, the direct association between Koob Scolitech and the Spinealite™ brace was not made clear in the article. This undeclared competing interest compromised the peer review process.
