Measures the Goldsmith Indices of Body Symmetry
The Anatomical Measuring Instrument is designed to measure the Goldsmith Indices of Body Symmetry, the only validated, objective measurements of body shape available. Alterations in critical dimensions of the chest demonstrate that someone will be experiencing reduced internal capacity of the abdomen and thorax which can lead to secondary complications.
The AMI measures these dimensions along with pelvic and leg rotation. The AMI allows families and healthcare professionals to build up a comprehensive picture of an individual’s body shape and develop a therapeutic positioning plan driven by this information.
