Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

The aim of this study was to evaluate the compatibility of external measurements of parameters characterizing scoliosis using the photogrammetric method.

MATERIAL:

The study involved 120 children between the ages of 7 and 11 years in Podkarpackie (Poland).

METHOD:

Measurements of body posture characteristics were performed using the photogrammetric method with mora projection. Each person was examined twice, once by two different therapists, with a time lapse of 20 minutes in between examinations.

RESULTS:

High accuracy and no statistical significance were found among different measurements of asymmetry parameters characterizing the shoulder blades and hips. Regularities were also found in the characteristic measurements of curves of scoliosis. The POSTI parameter showed a significant variation and lack of compatibility of results.

CONCLUSIONS:

(1) The photogrammetric method used to assess the pathological changes caused by scoliosis gives significant results in terms of parameters characterizing the position of the shoulder blades and shoulders, as well as pelvis rotation. (2) High compliance measurements are also characterized by the length of the right and left arcs of scoliosis.
