40 Years of Body Movement Analysis by CCG and Posturography between 1970 till 2010

Abstract

40 Years of Body Movement Analysis by CCG and Posturography between 1970 till 2010

Heid Lorant et all

The most sensitive indicator for giddiness and dizziness, i. e. human disequilibrium, are the motor reactions of the body. Already in the year 1848, Romberg designed the so-called Romberg standing test. In the year 1938, Unterberger designed the stepping test procedure. To this stepping test procedure, Fukuda (Japan) added in 1959 a spider web system in wite lines on the floor, where he drew the positions of the feet in the starting position and the end position of the stepping.

As early as 1968, Claussen then invented for the West-German Labour-Security Authorities the Cranio-Corpo-Graphy (CCG), where he recorded light tracings of the head and of the shoulders into an instant camera picture super-imposed by network structures.
So, finally by NEFERT, the movement patterns during standing, stepping, bending the head and sticking out the head like a turtle (LOLAVHESLIT) resembles to a radar image of a moving ship or airplane. With this technology, it is possible to define measures for displacements in the longitudinal, the lateral and the angular ways of the body and intracorporal displacements of the head with respect to the body.

Besides, another technology, the so-calld posturography, is using the measurement of the centre of gravity in the height of the hip by standing a patient on weighing scales underneath of each foot.

Intracorporal displacements of the head versus the body or recordings of the most sensitive vestibular motor test, the so-called stepping test, cannot be recorded by posturography. However, posturography of the standing test is very easy to be obtained by modern computer technology.

We are reading out from the databank of the CCG-parameters the following interactive network for our neurootological diagnoses.:

1.) Cranio-Corpo-Grapy
2.) Standing test/Romberg
3.) Stepping test/Unterberger, Fukuda
4.) NEFERT
5.) LOLAVHESLIT
