Wrong and right brace design according to curve pattern. A 11-year old girl with scoliosis of 34° Cobb (A), treated with a four-curve scoliosis brace (B), progressing to 48° (C) in brace and 55° (E) out of brace after one year of treatment (D). A brace well designed according to her classification of a three curves- A2 type (F) produced an acceptable in brace correction (G) with a good clinical response (H). She had criteria to be diagnosed as a three curves pattern from the first X-Ray.
