BACKGROUND: Posture disorder is commonly seen in society. There are some differences among the reasons of that, these are ergonomic deficiency of office work environment, habits, cultural and sexual differences. The primer target of our work is to determine the similarities or differences of the methods by analyzing the results of two of posture analysis methods used for the healthy individuals.
METHODS: In this study, the posture analysis has been made with Global Postural System and Symmetrigraph for 100 healthy individuals, 18-23-year-old, between the dates of March 2015-April 2015. In the study, posterior and lateral posture analysis has been made for the individuals standing in front of the Symmetrigraph and Bragg posture table has been used for this analysis. Assessment of the posture has been made over triple scale with the Global Postural System cervical, thoracal and lumbar lordosis angles have been calculated.
RESULTS: When the results obtained from the studies are taken into consideration, it can be said that the results obtained from both methods do not show parallels in general.
CONCLUSIONS: Consequently, we think that both methods can be used for the posture analysis, but the number and quality of the detailed studies related to this subject should be increased.
