To early recognize deviations of posture and to treat them in time, it is important to test children while they are in primary school. The current state of the art testing-method for physical therapists is the observational rating. With this bachelor-work the observational rating and a computer-supported method will be compared and it will be tested if there is any relation between these two methods. Therefore the reliability of the inspection will be checked. Because it is an empirical work, a study of 10 primary school pupils, who all are between 7 and 10 years, will be provided.
Because every child had a deviation of posture, there is a relative occurrence of 100%. Five different criteria were important for this analysis, and by all of them was no correlation between the two types of testing noticeable. Because the sample of the study includes only 10 children, the differences between the values are minor and the measured sectors are very big, it does not come to a meaningful outcome. To make this result evidence based, it is necessary to make another study with more participants.
