Recording Sagittal Posture Measurements

(NOTE: Must perform shoulder and hip
height measurements first. SECOND NOTE: Patient should face right)

  1. Position the patient facing right with their left shoulder against the wall grid.
  2. To capture forward head flexion, align the outside vertical laser between the ears tragus, and the acromion process.
  3. Click “Capture Neck Side”.
  4. To capture forward trunk flexion, align the outside vertical laser between the acromion process and the greater trochanter.
  5. Click “Capture Low Back Side”.
  6. To capture kyphosis:
    1. Turn the outside vertical laser so the laser line is parallel to the vertical grid lines.
    2. Slide outside vertical laser along the rail so the line intersects the greater trochanter.
    3. Turn inside the vertical laser so the laser line is parallel to the vertical floor grid lines.
    4. Slide inside the vertical laser so the laser is tangential to the apex of the patient’s
      thoracic curve.
  7. Click “Capture Kyphosis”
  8. To capture sway back follow the sub-steps in step 6.
  9. Click “Capture Sway Back”.
