WCR in-brace correction with optimal pad placements. a: Patient out-of-brace and pre- Cheneau-Rigo handmade type brace in July 2013, showing a right thoracic curve of 22-degree Cobb angle at T7 to T12 with the curve apex at T9; and a left lumbar curve of 22-degree Cobb angle at T12 to L4 with the curve apex at L2-3. Although the upper end-plate maximum inclination was T7, the curve inclined up to T7-T6-T5. b: Patient in a Cheneau-Rigo handmade type brace, with correction of decompensation of the trunk and a more balanced pelvis. c: The Cheneau-Rigo handmade type in-brace X-ray presented the thoracic pad at T9-10 with the pad pressures and size of pad covering approximately T8 to T11 and the counterforce at the left axilla at T 5. As a result, the Cheneau-Rigo handmade type in-brace X-ray showed a scoliosis with over 50% correction, which improved from thoracic 22 degrees Cobb and lumbar 22 degrees Cobb out-of-brace to thoracic 11 degrees Cobb and lumbar 10 degrees Cobb in-brace.
