The system consists of a structure with platform and two picture acquisition devices for static analysis of subject in mono bi-podalic support, and the attitude of the back-foot. It is therefore possible to acquire images in different moments, save and compare them.
Measurements can be carried out on each acquired picture, and an identification label could be associated on each type of measurement. Measurements can be saved on the picture itself, recalled in a second moment, shown on a patient report, or even exported for processing.
The goal is to give evidence of the foot type and to follow-up if there is a certain postural attitude, not correct or at risk. Following specific interventions, exercises and other corrective actions, may lead to further postural analysis for improvement observance.
At the end of the postural examination it is suggestable to provide a report to the patient with results, even in a comparison of data and pictures acquired in different moments. In particular for all types of measurements the relative tolerance can be reported, with evidence of whether one or more data collected are out of spectrum. This type of exam is non-invasive, and can therefore be repeated whenever deemed appropriate.
This laboratory for the static analysis of the podalic and back feet support can later be implemented. In particular it is possible to integrate a dynamic and balance analysis with modifications and additions to the platform, or otherwise as a further addition for a static analysis also of posture of the whole person.
