The system consists of a structure with a device for picture acquisition, and a postural analyzer for static analysis on the frontal plane, sagittal plane and for body areas. It is possible to acquire pictures of the subject under examination 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 recognize and keep monitored if there is a certain incorrect postural attitude or a 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 a person posture can be later implemented with the addition of a platform and another structure for the static analysis also of the podalic support, and possibly for dynamic and balance analysis. For further information, check the PL0700 and PL0800 laboratories.
