Scoliosisvolume 8, Article number: 7 (2013)
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  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.
