Amil Frame: Facilitating the application of corrective body casts

The Amil Casting Frame

The AMIL® Casting Frame incorporates a series of devices and mechanisms that facilitate controlled traction, de-rotation and lateral pressure of the spine of the child undergoing the early treatment procedure.

A corrective body cast, namely a plaster of paris jacket, is applied by an Orthopaedic Surgeon on the torso of the child.

The AMIL® Frame has been specifically designed for the procedure involved in the treatment of spinal deformity in infants and young children by Dr. Min H. Mehta, MD, FRCS, who advocated the concept of early detection and treatment.

Dr. Min H Mehta is considered an authority in the study of infantile scoliosis. Among her numerous accomplishments, she was the second woman in history to be awarded the Robert Jones Prize and Gold Medal by the British Orthopaedic Association for original research entitled “A study of Infantile Scoliosis” in 1968.

She never stopped her research on infantile scoliosis and in 2005, Dr. Mehta’s medical paper entitled: “Growth as a Corrective Force in the Early Treatment of Progressive Infantile Scoliosis”, a 25-year study, was published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. Her study has contributed to furthering the aim of reversing progressive scoliosis in infancy.
