BACKGROUND Specific adaptations of the spine in the sagittal plane have been described according to different sports disciplines. The goal of this study was to describe the integrative diagnosis of the sagittal morphotype of the spine in male and female artistic gymnasts. METHODS 48 gymnasts were measured with an inclinometer. Thoracic and Lumbar curves(More)
This article investigates whether a reflexive portfolio is instrumental in determining the level of acquisition of clinical competences in traumatology, a subject in the 5th year of the degree of medicine. A total of 131 students used the portfolio during their clinical rotation of traumatology. The students' portfolios were blind evaluated by four(More)
Schëuermanńs kyphosis is usually observed with a mild idiopathic scoliosis, and there is parity between these two diseases. The aim of this work is to establish a hypothesis about the existence of a biomechanical causal relationship between Schëuermann's kyphosis and scoliosis. To achieve this, a literature review was conducted. A simple mechanical model of(More)
PURPOSE To understand whether there is a trunk postural control threshold in the sagittal plane for the transition between the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) levels measured with 3-dimensional gait analysis. METHOD Kinematics from 97 children with spastic bilateral cerebral palsy from spine angles according to Plug-In Gait model(More)
Gross Motor Function Classification System has discriminative purposes but does not assess short-term therapy goals. Locomotion Stages (LS) classify postural body functions and independent activity components. Assessing the relation between Gross Motor Function Classification System level and Locomotion Stages will make us understand if clinical assessment(More)
