The system consists of a central structure with a platform, a postural analyzer and three pictures acquisition devices for static analysis on the frontal and sagittal plane, as well as of the bi-podalic support and the attitude of the back feet.
It is therefore possible to acquire pictures of the subject under examination in different moments, save them 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 prevention trough the observation of an incorrect postural attitude and the search of possible disorder causes, of a patient under examination pain. All information collected by the two systems
can therefore be useful for defining therapeutic interventions, targeted exercise programs and other corrective actions, also in an interdisciplinary collaboration between specialists.
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 to allow dynamic and balance analysis. In this case platform needs modifications and additions. For further information, check laboratories PL0750 and PL0800.
