Table 10 Cobb angle difference between Visit 1 (pre-brace) and Visit 3 on subjects who had different curve patterns adjusted for age and bracing hours (per log sheets)

From: A correlation study between in-brace correction, compliance to spinal orthosis and health-related quality of life of patients with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

Predictor Regression coefficient p value 95% C.I.
Curve pattern    
  Thoracic curves 6.45 0.001 (2.94, 9.97)
  Thoracolumbar curves 0   
Bracing hour −0.68 0.57 (−3.10, 1.74)
Age 0.89 0.21 (−0.52, 2.30)
  1. Independent variables Risser sign and menarchal status were not included in the final model as they were not significant (p > 0.025).
