    Could be

    concerned dad

    I dont have much time to comment but I want to suggest that since the curves less than 30 degrees are the least likely to progress, along with the fact that they were prescribed easier bracing requirements (night 8 hrs), maybe that alone accounts for the high compliance and low progression.

    I don't know the specifics of the study but you might have a point. If they didn't compare apples with apples they need to update that and run the study again.

    Even so this study is a huge step in the right direction. Without a computer chip there is no way to know what is going on.

    noncompliance

    Another thing this study suggests is that there are probably a lot of noncompliant kids populating studies on bracing.

    Yes. The Braist study is employing some kind of compliance monitor.

    That right there is an important result.
