Archibald Danquah-Amoah and Dr. Amit Alexander Charan
The spine is made up of three slight curves one is found in the neck, one in the upper back, and the last one situated in the lower back. These curves are normal and can be seen from a side view. Seeing from a back view, the spine should appear straight. Seeing from the back view if a spine have side to side curve it is called scoliosis. The normal Human spine is known to have a natural “S” curve. spine curvature can be classified into kyphosis and lordosis. Scoliosis is present in 0.2 – 6% of the population, affecting females in most cases and young male and female engaged in rhythmic gymnastics and altheles. A flexor sensor with buzzer alarm has been set to a particular angle around 10 or more degrees was designed and placed at he back of the atheles to dectect mild or moderate scoliosis, therefore when the individual bends during standing above 10 degree or more, beyond its own acceptable curvature degrees the alarm blows a sound to alert the human subjects or the young athletes to be upright or stand well.
