Through optoelectronic systems it's possible to have an objective dynamic analysis of the spine during movement suitable for everyday clinical practice. The aim of this study was to explore the forward bending (FB), lateral bending (LB) and axial rotation (AR) of the spine using a complete protocol focused only on the spine, in order to create a significant database of pattern of movements on healthy subjects. The research was conducted on a sample of 37. All the FB graphs are symmetrical and have fluid curves. Increased ROM during the functional tests was observed. It is highlighted the motor's learning and muscular fatigue phenomenon, through the analysis of the anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs). The series of graphs of LB and AR show asymmetry between the right and left movements, in which there is a dominant side. Through the results of this study, we can trace a motion profile of each single subject, and group the strategies adopted by participants to carry out the required movements.
