Abstract: A biofeedback system for monitoring patient-related signals of a patient having adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is disclosed. The present invention provides a personalized biofeedback to the patient based on the patient-related signals for restoring balance in muscle activities and reducing displacement of both sides of the patient's spine as a treatment for AIS. The biofeedback system comprises clothing integrated with posture monitoring sensors, and one or more computational systems comprising a sensor-based sEMG posture training subsystem for providing posture training and a posture monitoring subsystem for providing progressive training through daily activities. The sensor-based sEMG posture training subsystem comprises a posture training device coupled to a plurality of sEMG sensors, a feedback device and a calibration system. The posture monitoring subsystem monitors the posture of the patient and determines the properness of the posture by comparing the real-time data with the calibrated signals from the sEMG posture training subsystem.
