If you are suffering from persistent back pain or enduring issues with your back, pelvis, legs, or feet that remain unresolved following numerous treatment approaches, the FCE Full Body Scan may offer the diagnostic insight required for your condition.

  • What Does FCE Stand For?

FCE Scan refers to Formetric Clinical Evaluation. This involves scanning and assessing the body in a clinical setting, measuring aspects such as position, weight distribution, and movement. The technology behind FCE Scan is supported by more than 390 research studies and publications. It is a registered medical device, meeting the standards of the MDD (European) and FDA (U.S). Globally, this technology is utilised in Orthopaedic hospitals, private clinics, and elite sports facilities.

  • When and Why Consider a FCE Full Body Scan

The FCE Full Body Scan is particularly beneficial for:

  • Individuals experiencing recurring low back and back pain.
  • Those with prolonged back, pelvis, leg, or foot problems that remain unresolved after numerous therapy attempts.

This comprehensive scan evaluates your lower neck, spine, pelvis, legs, and feet, both at rest and in motion, in one complete package. This resting and motion analysis scan is designed to assess the underlying causes of discomfort or injury by analysing movement patterns. Importantly, the scan is safe, involving no radiation or magnetism.
