Average Cobb angles in each situation and correlation between on initial brace wearing and in hanging position of all cases. The average UA of all cases was 31.0 ± 7.8°. The average BA and HA of all cases were 20.3 ± 9.4° and 21.3 ± 8.4°, respectively. There were significant correlations between BA and HA. (UA: Cobb angle in upright position, BA: Cobb angle on initial brace wearing, HA: Cobb angle in hanging position).
