I don't think it's a spinecor, but it might be similar - it's something called a tornado suit.

It came through yesterday in my google feed from some PR link and, although the PR piece mentioned research, I can't find any link to back it up. Here's the PR piece

Without any evidence, I'm pretty wary, but I'll try writing to Dr. Morningstar and see if he can provide any more info. It just seems odd that any brace-like thing would 1) reduce a curve and 2) do anything at all when only worn for 1 to 6 hours.
