Pelvic Measurement Nivello

Do you suffer from back pain? Always consider the possibility of a pelvic obliquity.



Chronic back pain may have a simple case: Pelvic obliquity as a result of a length discrepancy.



The resulting static disorder of the spine can be compensated for a while, but a moderate leg length discrepancy can be compensated reflex responses, resulting in a corrective shift of the center of gravity in the hip. However, the crooked pelvis leads to modified pelvic motion dynamics:



Non physiological traction and extension stimuli and the incongruity between articulated vertebrae result in the formation of bone anomalies and the degeneration of intervertebral discs. The longer leg will elicit coxalgia, while the shorter leg will elicit pain in the knee joint. The malposition will gradually become contract and may even result in chronic headaches or a pain syndrome.



With this information in mind it is crucial that all patients with chronic back pain are systematically checked for pelvic obliquity.



For this purpose NIVELLO was developed.

Features

- Pelvic obliquity

- Leg length discrepancy

- Made of plastic

- Dimensions: LxDxH 34x24x3,5 cm
Side determination an the degree of leg length discrepancy can be identified in a single examination.



A length discrepancy of more than 1 cm ought to be compensated partially or completely with shoe customisation in order to adjust a pelvic obliquity.



Nivello Usage:



1. The patient stands naked and barefoot with straightened legs and parallel feet, no more than a hand apart, on an even floor.



2. Attach NIVELLO to the dorsal or ventral side of the iliac crest with the two swivel arms.



3. Keep NIVELLO in this position by exerting the same pressure on both sides (you can also let the patient do this)



4. Even out the arm of the scale.



5. In case of pelvic obliquity the leg length discrepancy will be visible as an intersection between the arm of the scale and the chart division.



The exact difference in leg length can be determined directly from the chart (The chart is gradated in 5 mm levels). This specification serves as the basis for decision regarding the necessary shoe customisation.



A length discrepancy of more than 1 cm ought to be compensated partially or completely with shoe customisation in order to adjust a pelvic obliquity.



The instrument is made of white plastic. The surface is good accessible and easy to clean.
