Validation of the flexible electrogoniometer for measuring thoracic kyphosis

Perriman, Diana; Scarvell, Jennie; Hughes, Andrew; Ashman, Bryan; Lueck, Christian; Smith, Paul


Study Design.: Three experiments to validate the use of the flexible electrogoniometer (FEG) as a tool to measure thoracic kyphosis. Objective.: To investigate the accuracy, test-retest reliability, and concurrent validity of the FEG as applied to the thoracic spine. Summary of Background Data.: Thoracic kyphosis is commonly measured by the Cobb angle from lateral radiograph. Other less-invasive tools have been developed, but all yield only static measurements or are restricted to the...[Show more]
