Our Success Rate With the Boston Brace Original
We measure success by the curve correction we see from an in-brace x-ray. Our goal is to see at least a 50% curve reduction. For example, if the patients initial Cobb Value is 30, an in-brace x-ray (with the brace on) should show the Cobb Value at 15. The chart below shows the average curve correction for Thoracic, Thoracolumbar, and Lumbar curve locations in both Single and Double curves. You'll note that on more complex curves it is less likely to meet the goals, while lesser Cobb Values it's easier.
