Title
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR ASSESSING CORRECT POSTURAL ALIGNMENT OF AN INDIVIDUAL
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT D'EVALUER CORRECTEMENT L'ALIGNEMENT POSTURAL D'UN INDIVIDU
Abstract
(EN)
Many individuals have postural misalignments which can be corrected by the use of alignment accessories, such as wedges for positioning beneath the feet. Correction of postural alignment in this way can improve sporting performance. The invention provides a device and a method for selecting between differently-shaped alignment accessories to optimise postural alignment. The device comprises a sensor (12) having a plunger (22) which can be pressed by an individual. A data acquisition unit (10) records the force applied by the individual and the time taken to apply that force. For each of a number of different alignment accessories the individual is instructed to press the plunger with the greatest force possible (F) for the shortest time possible (t). The data acquisition unit generates an output parameter preferably based on F2/t or F/t. The optimum alignment accessory corresponds to the highest output parameter.

De nombreux individus présentent des défauts d'alignement postural qui peuvent être corrigés par l'utilisation d'accessoires d'alignement tels que des cales à placer sous les pieds. En corrigeant l'alignement postural de cette manière, on peut améliorer les performances sportives. La présente invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé qui permettent de choisir entre des accessoires d'alignement postural de formes différentes afin d'optimiser l'alignement postural. Le dispositif de l'invention comprend un capteur (12) muni d'un piston (22) qui peut être enfoncé par un individu. Une unité d'acquisition de données (10) enregistre la force appliquée par l'individu et le temps nécessaire à l'application de cette force. Pour chacun des différents accessoires d'alignement postural, l'individu doit enfoncer le piston avec la plus grande force possible (F) pendant une durée aussi courte que possible (t). L'unité d'acquisition des données produit un paramètre de sortie basé, de préférence, sur F2/t or F/t. L'accessoire d'alignement postural optimal est celui qui correspond au paramètre de sortie le plus élevé.
