The Spinal Mouse ® device includes two rollers included on a mobile support that allows spinous contour tracking. This shape is recorded by three sensors (one for each plane of three-dimensional system of carthesian axes x, y, z) which, via a Bluetooth connection, transmit clinically relevant data to the computer program.
The software program for Spinal Mouse ® represents the true backbone configuration using a sophisticated algorithm, implemented by the manufacturing company. Its posture and mobility assessment is based on sets of measures in sagittal and frontal planes and the close connection between the back surface and the median line of the spine.
Results show excellent validity when compared to X-rays. The SpinalMouse ® software displays the results, emphasizing values such as hypo or hyper mobile vertebral joints or deviations from reference values.
