An extensive school screening program for scoliosis needs to establish the early treatment program. Since 1963, an underarm brace “Active Corrective Brace” has been used in 396 cases with idiopathic scoliosis. Follow-up study revealed that 21 percent of the final average percentage of correction was successfully obtained. The brace should be indicated for the cases with flexible curves of 20-40 degrees.
This brace program can allow development of the postural reflexs and activation of the trunk muscles to correct the curves and also be cosmetically and structurally acceptable to the children so that the trertment will continue untill complete skeletal maturity.
