“Very satisfied with the program. Used it with my patients for 2 months now. Good feedback especially when they see changes. Provides a measure for posture improvement and balance testing improvement. I recommend it.” ~Ethan White
PostureZone makes it easy for the posture pro to:
- Import and edit images taken with your digital camera
- Zoom and crop Adjust brightness and contrast
- Rotate and overlay a digital posture grid
- Near-perfect image rotation correction can be achieved by aligning digital grid overlay with an optional PostureZone Grid in the image background
- Measure degrees of deviation from true vertical and horizontal by marking various anatomical landmarks
Document Clinical Postural Observations in each biomechanical posture zone, for example a posture pro might observe:
- Cervical extension adaptation
- High shoulder on right
- Tight right arm-body space
- Left foot pronated
Print posture picture reports with findings up to three views
- AP - Front View
- PA - Back View
- Lateral - Side View
For single-date posture reports for a new patient / client baseline exam, or community posture screening, use the included "Strong Posture" information or edit text for your specific needs. You also have the option to create comparison reports using follow-up posture pictures, comparing posture measurements, as well as comparing postures picture pre and post care, or as an annual posture assessment exam.
Pre and post care / treatment / training reports support your posture improvement or rehabilitation plan, while also demonstrating positive results that patients / clients can easily communicate (and show) others, increasing referrals, compliance with care plan, and retention.
Promoting annual posture analysis builds awareness and reminds patients / clients that daily posture exercise (like Strong Posture Exercise Protocols) are an intelligent life habit.
A posture picture is worth a thousand words, and postural pictures provide compelling visual evidence for patients/clients as well as providing important data for tracking posture changes and choosing appropriate posture exercise rehab protocols. The horizontal and vertical lines make posture deviations easy to identify and explain to patients/clients, plus pre & post posture assessment pictures makes it easy to demonstrate increased symmetry, balance and other improvements or changes.
PostureZone software was developed by BodyZone.com the leader in posture rehab exercise, continuing education, and posture certification programs for posture-focused professionals (doctors, therapists, trainers, educators). Created specifically to fill the need in the marketplace for a modern, inexpensive, effective, easy-to-use, clinical posture assessment program. We use it too! In clinical practice, in research and in education. For this reason the program has continued to evolve since it's initial release in 2006.
“My partner and I are using PostureZone for our physical therapy research project. We are comparing forward head posture from the side before and after 2 different exercise programs to see if one is more effective at improving posture. The programs are 6 weeks long and we will be taking a picture of the participants before and after the program to see if there are any changes. Our research findings will be presented as our thesis at the end of our doctoral program.” ~Jordan Burkhart (Supervised by Dr. Craig Ruby), Director of Physical Therapy, Wheeling Jesuit University
You'll find no cartoon-images, or proprietary "posture number" or grading gimmicks to distract the patient / client from learning your assessment of their postural findings, and recommendations for posture improvement.
Also important to note: there are no monthly or annual fees, no fee-per-report, no supplies to buy. Updates are free.
PostureZone posture assessment software, posture exercise protocols and posture grids are used by doctors (DC, DO, DDS, MD, PhD), therapists (PT, MT, NMT, CMT, LMT, OT, Physio, rolfer, senior care), trainers (CPT, PT, FT), instructors (yoga, pilates, feldekrais, alexander technique, egoscue, etc) educators, researchers, coaches, physical education intructors, nurses, clinics, universities, collegiate sporting teams, athletic depts and hospitals worldwide.
