It is fast, pain-free, without irradiation and contraindications.

The device can model the spine and posture in a static as well as dynamic positions when walking on a special walking belt.

Incorrect posture and scoliosis begin long before the first discomfort, headaches and lower back pain appear. It is a consequence of birth defects and asymmetries arising at an early age.

Non-physiological changes are not noticeable in pre-school and early school age and may pass unnoticed. During puberty, a sharp deterioration and progression of erroneous posture and scoliotic curve occur frequently. At the age of 13, the child becomes adolescent and with passing years, due to age, both the curve and the patient become increasingly difficult to treat (e.g. inconvenience associated with wearing a corset, shyness). For successful treatment, the development of the curve needs to be monitored as soon as possible. Likewise, a child is easier to undergo treatment if accustomed to it from an early age.

The examination is suitable for children from 5 years of age. The treatment is ideal to start at the age of 12.
