Analysis of posture
The underlying causes of many acute or overuse injuries are often not treated using a conventional diagnostic and therapeutic approach, leading to frequent reinjury and treatment failure. Many leading therapists have discovered that treating the patient's global posture is the key to a successful, fast and efficient treatment regime. Performing a detailed posture analysis is an essential part of a more hollistic therapeutic approach and treatment strategy. Global Posture Analysis System (GPS), is made up of a number of units and a software that makes possible to acquire images for body part measurements, as well as information concerning weight distribution, barycenter and stability of the patient. Posture analysis can be used jointly in several medical disciplines if there is a will to consider the individual as a whole multidisciplinary treatment, therapy and prevention program.
