Momentum Health receives FDA 510K Clearance for Momentum Spine, a Pioneering AI-Enabled Mobile Application for Monitoring Scoliosis, Available for Download Now!

After receiving their Health Canada class 1 medical device clearance, Momentum Spine continues to gain traction with FDA clearance and the launch of their mobile app. 

MONTREAL, Feb. 15, 2024 /CNW/ - Momentum Health Inc. is excited to announce that its innovative mobile application, Momentum Spine, has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. This state-of-the-art AI application offers a non-invasive, radiation-free solution to quantify postural asymmetries, including scoliosis, directly targeting a long-standing challenge in managing spinal deformities.


Scoliosis is the most prevalent spine deformity affecting 3% of Children 1 and an estimated 68% of adults above 60 years old 2. It is defined as a sideways curvature of the spine in the coronal plane. The key to successful scoliosis management is early detection and frequent monitoring. However, in our current standard of care scoliosis patients are at elevated risks of cancer due to repetitive radiation exposure via X-Rays 3.

Momentum Spine is an AI-enabled digital health platform to remotely monitor postural asymmetries, including scoliosis, using a simple video taken on a smartphone. The platform can be used by clinicians and care teams to remotely monitor scoliosis patients with less radiation exposure and more continuous follow-up as well as the general population who would like to monitor their spine health.


With the recent FDA clearance, Momentum Health is progressing to the commercialization phase for the Momentum Spine technology. The company will offer their solution to health systems through institutional licenses and also make it available directly to consumers via app stores.

Key features and benefits of Momentum Spine include:

Dr. Jean Ouellet, a Pediatric Spine Surgeon and the Chief Medical Officer of Momentum Health Inc., shared his enthusiasm: "Receiving FDA clearance is a monumental achievement for Momentum Health. Momentum Spine not only empowers patients and healthcare providers with accurate and timely data but also signifies a leap in harnessing AI for spine care."
