DIERS Posture Diagnostics


Latest Generation Spine and Posture Analysis

Certainly there were many times you wondered about side effects of radiological tests (X-ray scan, CT, MRI) performed using X-ray. In order to provide accurate diagnosis, perform routine tests, perform screening tests and as a part of monitoring the process of improving/rehabilitation of spinal dysfunctions, until recently physicians could only use clinical/physical examination techniques and scans using X-rays. Because of this people decided to extensively seek alternative methods for human body measurements, while avoiding the side effects of irradiation. And so we have the results of many years of tests: based on light pattern projection, the method of three-dimensional space spinal measurement and analysis.



Three-dimensional Spine Analysis

It is a noninvasive, patient- and personnel-safe alternative to X-ray tests. Three-dimensional spine analysis is a revolutionary and future combination of the latest optical technology and digital data processing. It is a quick and non-contact - and in most cases also automatic, with no markers - measurement and analysis of patient's back and spine, as well as differences in lower extremities length. The measurement results are very accurate, and thanks to built-in image transmission to the computer, data analysis takes place immediately after performing the test. Thanks to the measurement, it is possible to provide accurate diagnosis, facilitating selection of possibly the best individual therapy.


Formetic 3D and 4D analysis works like this:

analiza-kregoslupa-2The patient stands in front of the device consisting of a digital camera and projector. The projector emits parallel measurement lines onto the surface of the back while the digital video camera transmits three-dimensional image to the computer. Computer software immediately analyzes the data and determines digital image of the back, spine and pelvic position. Thanks to a platform with adjusted height it is possible to perform precise body posture correction simulation (disparity in the lower extremities, scoliosis, pelvis positions, etc.). As a part of monitoring the treatment progress, it is easy to visually compare the current status with previous states or the initial examination. Based on scientific studies, advance optic measurement methods allowed to obtain body posture image and place the spine in three-dimensional space. The measurement results are helpful when selecting and performing therapy and they also allow to determine treatment progress.
