Clinical history of the patient as documented by surface topography. On the upper left the patients reconstructed back can be seen at the start of treatment, on the upper middle picture 6 months and on the upper right picture 12 months while treated with the brace. A little improvement is visible after 12 month of treatment. On the lower left the patients reconstructed back can be seen 15 month after the start of treatment, on the lower middle picture 20 months and on the lower right picture 27 months while treated. A clear cosmetic improvement is visible when the initial surface reconstruction (upper left) is compared to the last one on the lower right.
