|Abstrakt EN:||Introduction: Sagittal profile of the trunk is an important determinant of human posture. Digital photography may be a standard technique for sagittal profile assessment. Photographic parameters measurement is used to document and quantitatively assess the body posture. Methods: Thirty asymptomatic children (13 girls, 17 boys) aged 7-10 years (mean 8.2 ±1.0) were examined by one researcher in standing spontaneous position using standardized procedure for photographic posture evaluation. The undressed child (only with the underwear) was barefoot with knees extended and feet hip-width apart. The feet were placed on longitudinal and crosswise lines marked on the ground, so that their lateral malleoli were over the crosswise line, and feet were parallel to the longitudinal line. Children were looking forward at eye level. In order to demonstrate sagittal curvatures of the spine, upper limbs were slightly flexed in gleno-humeral and elbow joint at an angle of approx. 10-20° and 20-30°, respectively. The flexion in gleno-humeral joint was performed slowly to avoid a movement of the trunk. Digital photographs of the left side of the body were taken: (1) three one after the other, (2) three after one hour and (3) three after one week in 5 seconds intervals each of them. In total 270 photos were assessed. Five photographic parameters were calculated on each photo. The statistical tests (analysis of variance, homogeneity of variance, normality of distribution and post-hoc tests) were used to examine the variation of five parameters in time.|
