Backache, spine deformations and physiologic malpositions are known as widespread negative phenomena in our modern world. Analysis of the outer shape and back surface of a single patient - one of the basic elements in the chain of reasoning and evaluation - is usually performed by orthopedic specialists which may decide about treatment and the use of correction implements. We present an innovative solution for 3D back measurement and scientific evaluation, designed to simplify and objectify spine curvature in connection with the position of the body's gravity centre (COG). The solution TERGOSKOP represents a tool for diagnostic investigation, proof of rehabilitation progress and inter-case comparison of spine curvature characteristics.
