    In the design of a scoliosis correction implant one has to take interpersonal differences in geometrical and mechanical properties of the spine into account.
    Moreover, these properties change in the growing spine. In this study the quantitative effects of such geometrical changes on variation of the stiffness of the spine were analysed.
