SpineX Announces Successful in-Human Results to Treat Adults with Cerebral Palsy

First in-human study using its proprietary non-surgical and non-invasive SCiP device to treat adults with Cerebral Palsy shows marked patient improvement after just eight weeks


SpineX Inc. today announced groundbreaking results in its first in-human study treating an adult with Cerebral Palsy (CP). The study, published in the esteemed medical journal BioElectronic Medicine, demonstrates significant functional improvements in an adult with CP after treatment with the company’s proprietary non-surgical SCiP™ therapy.

This study affirms how after just eight weeks of SCiP therapy treatment, a 60-year-old woman living with CP is able to perform daily living activities with minimal external assistance. “This is an absolute game changer for the CP community,” says the patient, who has lived with CP her entire life. Despite living with this severely debilitating condition, she has managed her symptoms with current standard of care therapies. However, she consistently encountered limited mobility and spent a great deal of energy completing routine tasks.

“After eight weeks of SCiP therapy, my balance was better, I was more confident in walking and climbing stairs with minimal assistance and was able to get dressed in less than half my usual time,” she says. “Over the years, I’ve tried every possible therapy available, but none of them had the impact that SCiP had, and in such a short period of time.”

Breakthrough Device Designation

SpineX has Breakthrough Device Designation (BDD) from the US FDA for SCiP and its proposed treatment of CP. SpineX has also engaged with the FDA to align on a proposed clinical trial to be conducted later this year, with the results expected to lead to FDA clearance of the SCiP device for the treatment of CP. “SCiP is a key missing piece in the puzzle for the treatment of CP,” says Dr. Girshin, lead therapist for the study and a key opinion leader within the CP community. “I am excited by the potential impact that SCiP could have on the CP population for both adults and children.”
