Postural Assessment

Global postural evaluation

With a permanent desire to improve our services and add value to the quality of recovery services, starting with May, Centrokinetic provides you with a modern and high-performance device for determining the posture of the body and the GPS 400 center of gravity. We also have the G-Walk device for computerized walking determination.

Both devices are dedicated to children starting at 4 years, as well as adults and athletes.

Postural evaluation begins with an examination of the patient's medical history because this is the starting point for a correct diagnosis and treatment. This is followed by physical evaluation - muscle-joint balance for all large joints, specific tests for the spine, static and dynamic observation of the body in all 3 planes - frontal, sagittal, and transverse. Assessing muscle tone is also an extremely important element in the subsequent establishment of a plan.

After the physical evaluation, we start the computerized evaluation by photographing the patient from the front, left and right, and from the back, revealing the deficiencies of the spine from the frontal, sagittal, and transversal plane.

We follow:
  • Head position
    • Shoulder alignment
    • The position of the shoulder blades
    • Malformations of the sternum
    • Position of the anterosuperior iliac spines
    • Waistline
    • Pelvis position
    • Knee anatomy - valgus or varus
    • Foot position - flat, cavus, valgus,
    • The spine in the Sagittal plane - kyphosis, lordosis
    Following this evaluation, we establish the individualized recovery plan for each patient.

The center of gravity evaluation

The relationship between the sole and the support surfaces is evaluated with the help of the podoscope, an instrument composed of an illuminated glass that creates the image of the foot reflected in a mirror and thus photographed. With the help of the podoscope, we evaluate the center of gravity, the loading of the weight on each foot, and on each of the 3 reference points of the foot (little toe, big toe, heel). If the body weight is distributed asymmetrically in relation to the horizontal plane, the center of gravity will be closer to the larger loading area.


The evaluation with the podoscope shows us:
The exact location of a person's center of gravity

Thus, we evaluate pathologies such as those of body posture, foot pathologies, orthopedic and orthodontic pathologies, and establish a recovery plan based on quantitative and qualitative parameters.

The analysis is initially performed with the patient's eyes open, the next examination is with the patient's eyes closed and thus we evaluate the differences between the 2 measurements to determine if there are visual or balance disorders that affect posture. The third examination is with the patient's head turned to the left and then to the right and also the examination by changing the oral afferents (with clenched teeth, etc)


All data and imagery remain in the computer and at the next re-examination the data overlap and can follow the evolution of the patient at a certain time.

Walking evaluation

In addition to the postural analysis, we have the computerized assessment of gait. The patient performs a free walk during which the device records:

  • speed
  • step length
  • duration of a left-to-right comparison cycle
  • duration of the stationary phase
  • duration of the oscillation phase
  • the symmetry of propulsion in the unipodal phase
  • cadence of steps

We will also have records of the anteroposterior inclination, rotation, and obliquity of the pelvis while walking.
All these data will help us in establishing an extremely complex physical therapy program, following which the re-evaluations will be performed 2 or 3 months after the beginning of the therapy, depending on the patient's pathology.

Plantar, postural, and gait analysis is addressed to both children and adults with orthopedic, traumatological, or neurological pathology.

In the Specialized Pediatric Medical Recovery Department we are glad to have  Ruxandra Tudosoiu in our team. She is overspecialized in Schroth therapy for the treatment of scoliosis, with 7 years of experience, fully involved in recovering patients. We have Sorina Micu, a physiotherapist passionate about working and interacting with children, overspecialized in Schroth therapy, which aims to prevent or recover from disabilities due to some conditions or injuries, Anne Iordanescu , physiotherapist specializing in pediatric rehabilitation and Ana Coman, with over 3 years of experience in this field. 

The department covers an area of ​​100 sq. meters, has ultra-modern equipment and consists of a team of specialists. Besides our 4 physiotherapists, we enjoy the presence of doctors Orlando Marinescu and Tomescu Cezar, pediatric orthopedic doctors, but also of psychologists Elena Florea and Carmen Hotar, specialists who help us in diagnosing children, in developing treatments, psychological counseling of children and parents, speech therapy and social and family integration of all children.
