Study examining the validity and reliability of two motion analysis devices, the CMS 50 and the Rachimetre. The CMS 50 is a three-dimensional ultrasound motion analyzer, and the Rachimetre is a spine motion analyzer. They are both used in assessing mobility in people while bending forward while in a standing position. There were 50 participants in the reliability study whose ages ranged from 18 to 49. There were 10 participants in the validity study, ages 33 to 51. The results of the study show that both evaluation devices have adequate metric properties to assess pelvic mobility during trunk flexion in a standing position.
