A radiation free statodynamic measurement method, that provides important diagnostic information on the spinal column, hip status, head balance, jaw position, body tone, posture, leg and foot loads.

Formetric 4D

Therapy Supporting Measurement

The analysis system DIERS formetric 4D technology allows a quick, static and dynamic (functional) and optical measurement of the above mentioned body segments. The process is free of radiation and does not directly contact the body. Multiple clinical diagnoses regarding objective analyses of body tension and posture, scoliosis and all forms of spinal column deformities can be determined.

Functional analysis of spine and posture with DIERS Formetric 4D

Functional analysis of spine and posture with DIERS Formetric 4D

The newest development of 4D technology is innovative for the entry in the functional clinical measurement techniques, enhancement of measure accuracy (4D averaging) and avoidance of false measurements attributed to posture variations. It allows static measurements, which can be determined through a series of pictures over time while also allowing measurements during body movement (walking, running).


  • Spinal column position
  • False positioning due to scoliosis
  • Lordosis and Kyphosis
  • Pelvis position
  • Differences in leg lengths
  • False foot positioning
  • Head and jaw positions – Craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD)
  • Functional analysis
  • Deviations and case tendencies
  • Other

Cervical Spine Measurement

With the “cervical spine measurement” module, the mobility (range of motion) of the cervical spine (neck) can be assessed in 3D. The direction of motion, flexion, extension, left lateral flexion as well as right and left and right rotation is measured. The measurement data and asymmetries are able to be pictured graphically.


The analysis of the movement apparatus is completed in connection of a foot pressure measurement system. It provides important additional clinical information.
