The purpose of this study was to compare two different methods measuring trunk postureand statico-dynamical spine analysis. 32 patients participated in this cross sectionalstudy. Comparing measured values a wide congruence could be demonstrated withmarginal underestimating in kyphosis and lordosis data for the ultrasound based system.The largest deviation could be shown for pelvic obliquity measured in mm. Trunkinclination, vertical deflection and pelvic obliquity measured in degree showed properanalogy for both measuring systems. Validity, reliability based on particular technicalprinciples could be verified.
