Measurement of Child’s Body Posture Development

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The purpose of our research was to analyze the existent methods for measurement of child’s body posture development. The research was made on the basis of studies, which was in this research field already done in Slovenia and abroad in last thirty years. The research included existent studies, which evaluated the position of spine by child in late childhood. The stud­ies concerned purpose of the research was searched in international bibliographic bases: COBISS/OPAC, Web of Science, PSYCInfo, SPRINGER link in PubMed. In analysis were includ­ed methods for measurement back symmetry or asymmetry. We found out that there exist many different measuring instruments for the evaluation position of the spine. But these instru­ments don’t make possibilities to diagnose incorrectness in back asymmetry in early stages. We suggested that tensiomyography method would take an important place in early discov­ering of back asymmetry in the future.
