In bracing of idiopathic scoliosis, the corrective components of the brace have been evaluated regarding axial and lateral forces. The present study stresses the importance of sagittal changes achieved in patients wearing the brace. The corrective effect on scoliotic curves by sagittal changes of the spine in bracing is demonstrated by roentgenograms.
