“Digital postural assessment with Apecs could represent a quick method for preventing screening in the general population. Therefore, clinicians should consider this app’s worth as an auxiliary posture evaluation tool”
This was one of the conclusions in a newly published research article focusing on reproducibility of postural assessments with APECS.
The research study involved a sample of 100 people and highlighted the ease of use, affordability, and reproducibility of APECS for postural evaluation.
The team of researchers was based in several research and medical institutions in Italy and the US: Bruno Trovato (University of Catania), Federico Roggio (University of Catania & University of Palermo), Martina Sortino (University of Catania), Marta Zanghì (University of Catania), Luca Petrigna (University of Catania), Rosario Giuffrida (University of Catania), Giuseppe Musumeci (University of Catania & Temple University).
The results of this research have been published in the article Postural Evaluation in Young Healthy Adults through a Digital and Reproducible Method in the Journal of Functional Morphology and Kinesiology.
