Digitized Unterberger test


Clinical use. The Utenberger test is used to slatentise postural imbalances resulting from trauma to the cervical spine, or to postural anomalies. Simulators or functionals can be studied.

Protocol. The subject is first prepared, placing it on the apex of the skull and on the acromions of the adhesive markers. Then he is invited to walk on site, for 1 minute with his eyes open and then with his eyes closed, starting from an origin of a point marked on the floor below a camera that records the test.

Procedures. We study the lines of movement that are formed by the skin markers (located on the top of the skull, right and left shoulders) in those patients in which we want to slatentize the balance disorder of central or peripheral origin that are borderline to the other tests (stabilometry , physical examination), quantifying and graphing the deficit according to the literature referring to Klaussen's craniocorpography.

Execution time: 1 minute with eyes open and 1 minute with eyes closed.

Conclusions. Within 30 minutes the operator analyzes the data (indicators), prints the graphs and concludes, delivering everything to the patient in a sealed envelope.

The report written and signed by the doctor with the diagnostic conclusions, prescriptions or therapeutic or clinical in-depth recommendations (MRI, CT etc.) is delivered to the patient after the examination. If the patient is rehabilitative on the basis of disability, the project and the objective are provided as per PRI (individual rehabilitation plan).

The instrumental examinations can then be repeated for the normal follow-up on the basis of the indicators to be checked over time. If, for control over time, the same doctor prescribes the exams to be repeated on a company commitment.
