How to use APECS?

Does APECS use research findings?

APECS uses standardized landmarks and anatomical angles for postural assessment. Inside the app you can find a full list of anthropometric landmarks (with Latin names and descriptions) and angles involved. These anthropometric landmarks have been the subject of extensive research by scientists and doctors over the past 50 years. You can find a lot of useful information about their validity by checking literature review articles or specific studies like Garrett et al. (1993), Shaghayeghfard et al. (2015) etc.

Researchers, physiotherapists, PhD candidates and students have used APECS in their research projects. Here are several different types of publications that might interest you:
