About Spinal Mapping

This hand-held device glides down the back, carefully measuring, documenting, visualising and reporting on joints in the spinal column.

The SpinalMouse™ is safe and non-invasive. It provides fast, valid, reliable and easily understood information about the spinal column, with no harmful radiation used.

Results have been shown to have excellent validity when compared to conventional x-rays.

Spinal mapping using the SpinalMouse™ may be used effectively for:

  • Formal spine assessments
  • Accurate measurement of therapeutic progress
  • Assisting in the prescription of specific and individual rehabilitation programmes
  • As a screening tool
  • Inclusion in health education programmes


"The SpinalMouse™ is an electronic computer-assisted device that measures and graphically reports on the shape, mobility and stability of the spine."
