Table 9 Cobb angle difference between Visit 1 (pre-brace) and Visit 2 on subjects who had different curve patterns adjusted for age and bracing hours (per log sheet)

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 5.40 0.002 (2.14, 8.66)
  Thoracolumbar curves 0   
Bracing hour 2.04 0.09 (−0.34, 4.43)
Age 0.44 0.54 (−0.99, 1.86)
  1. Independent variables Risser sign and menarchal status were not included in the final model as they were not significant (p > 0.025).
