Fig. 13

This figure shows the correct sagittal balance and alignment of the brace. No matter which is the observed geometry of the scoliotic spine (a, c), the brace will have always the tendency to bring it to a more physiologic geometry. However, knowing that the classical thoracic scoliotic deformity has a more or less market structural lordotic component in the main thoracic region we do not expect that the geometry of the spine can be totally normalized by the brace, the same way we do not expect a structural curvature to be reduced until 0°. The sagittal geometry of the spine in brace will be normally hypo-kyphotic/hypo-lordotic (b, d)
