In-brace correction in two subsequent braces of one patient with rigid kyphosis. A. In-brace correction in the first brace of a patient with rigid kyphosis: The correction was from 50° initially to 27° in the first brace. B. In-brace correction in the second brace of the patient from figure 13 A: In the second brace the curve has been corrected from 35° to 18° and the curve was no more stiff. However as there was still growth left we adjusted a new brace for 8-12 hrs./day.
