Spine, Pelvis and Posture
Analysis in 3D
Fast, contactless, radiation-free -- the Formetric uses a fast (40 milliseconds) hi-defi nition optical measurement of the surface of the back of your patient to produce graphical, clinical and analytical information on the spine, the pelvis and posture.
Ideal for chiropractors, the Formetric provides clinical information to develop your diagnostics and treatments and to document your treatment outcomes.
The Formetric’s radiation-free and non-intrusive qualities allow you to repeatedly do multiple scans of your patients e.g. before and immediately after.
A complement to your radiology equipment, the Formetric does not require any license and special building construction, nor any lengthy training for its accurate and repeatable measurements.
