Today (May 14th) is Dr. Chêneau's (92nd) birthday! 
As I have learned so much from Dr. Chêneau and as his principles of treatment have widely been implemented in the Gensingen brace (GBW) today we also celebrate Happy Gensingen Brace day!

The Academy's Bejing conference will be postponed:
Dear Dr. Weiss, 

I'm sorry to tell you that I just received a notice from my superiors that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, and Beijing will hold a series of activities to celebrate National Day.
Especially near the National Day, foreign-related activities are difficult to hold, the entry and exit of Beijing procedures are very troublesome. 
Our meeting in September involves a lot of foreign personnel. For foreign participants, visa and entry may be affected. Considering the effect and quality of the meeting, it is the best choice to postpone the meeting to next year (the specific time will be decided later). 

Best regards.

The Academy regrets that our plans cannot be fulfilled this year. Wishing all the best.

bildschirmfoto-2017-01-13-um-07-40-37 It has been decided to introduce two new terms: PSSR (Pattern Specific Scoliosis Rehabilitation) and PSSB (Pattern Specific Scoliosis Bracing). The reason why is that currently the word 'specific' is watered down. While with Schroth it was always meant as to be 'pattern specific' today many approaches are called 'specific' just because a method is used for scoliosis treatment even though a pattern specific approach is not described. Therefore, when following a certain pattern specific correction routine like in the Schroth Best Practice Program or with the Gensingen (Schroth) Brace we use the term PSSR and PSSB respectively.
