To whom it may concern,
I am doctoral student in faculty of physical therapy, cairo
University. My thesis is about load carriage in primary school children. i
want to examine if the forward head posture will change with differnt bag
styles. i have only three infrared cameras, and i want to measure the
forward head posture during both static and dynamic state, most papers take
the angle between the tragus, C7and the horizontal line passing through C7.
i don't know if i take external refernce points to represent horizontal line
it can be applied in static but during gait(dynamic) it will be diffcult to
measrure the angle. only one paper, measured the forward head posture in
other way not as angle but in horizontal distance(by mm) between ankle and
tragus maker.it is good idea and easy to measure in both satic and dynamic
conditions, but the problem that i don't have refernce values for this
method.
if you are able to provide information that would be useful for my clinical
part,let me know
i would really appreciate your time,
Thank you'
