Between-Day Reliability of DIERS Formetric 4D® Measurements and the Effects of Prolonged Sitting on Five Standing Positions in Healthy University Students

SUMMARY Background. The aim of this study was to investigate between-day reliability of postural measurements and to examine the effects of prolonged sitting (2 hours) on standing spinal posture using the DIERS Formetric 4D®device. Methods. A test-retest reliability study was performed on 14 healthy university students to assess spinal shape parameters in five different standing positions. Between-day reliability was … Continued
