The transport of lymph along the spinal cord appear to be very important. Our observation focused on the human trunk surface by objective optical Moir 3D topography. For identification of muscle disbalance in clinical practice, the standard experimental method is observation by palpation. [1] It is presuppose that the observed position of the scapula or spine course e.g. depends on the cooperation of resting muscles and on the muscle disbalance in this functional area. The use of fuzzy logic, enables us to model experimental findings to describe the nonlinear behavior and dynamics of the human neuromusculoskeletal systems. Fuzzy logic models work with fuzzy (imprecise) information, for problems solving can be used method of adaptive neuro-fuzzy learning. In our study we used various methods of controlling lumbo-thoracal posture shape in sagital and frontal plain. Our task was to find whether spine movement total parallel during time or one region is moved in comparison with adjacent ones. Movement of the spine can be one of propulsive mechanismus of transport of lymph along the spinal cord.
