Evaluation of muscle-skeletal, cardiopulmonary and metabolic systems, and of movement modulation is crucial for the management of a motor program. Approaches to studying posture and therefore and intervention are different. In order to be effective subject evaluation should be as simple, broad non-invasive and standardized as possible. Aim The aim of this study is to provide a non-invasive individual’s evaluation format, , designed to provide information to the Motor Science specialist for realizing an individual profile required to organize a motor program fitting the individual characteristics, abilities, possibilities, needs and preferences. Subject evaluation was based on information useful in defining the muscular force of districts involved in postural control, neuro-muscular control, deficits in amplitude of muscle movement, differences between emisomes. Methods The work was realized in Merano at the “Moving Center” fitness center and at the Leading Medical Spa, ”Villa Eden”. Sixty subjects, randomly selected in a population attending the medical SPA and the fitness centre. History collection and preliminary instrumental and laboratory exams were collected by the medical staff. The evaluation protocol comprises a total of 17 tests of motion, known in the literature as indicators of muscular retraction, muscle force, neuro-muscular control and sagittal postural derangements1. A total score of 18 points was applied for each of the four categories. All tests are funded on observation of the individual and his posture, in control conditions and during a basic motor program or the exercise representing the specific test. The experimental activities was performed between January 2013 and May 2013. Results Mean age of the study population (SP) 50 ±5 ad BMI of 25±5. Mean flexibility score: 13,62 for ♀and 7,82 for ♂. Mean force score: 8.87 for ♀, 8.60 for ♂.Main score for neuro-muscolar control: 10.12 for ♀ , 8.85 for ♂. Equilibrium mean score was 13.68 for ♀ and 12.34 for ♂. The 22% fails in the head rotation test with 40% of disequilibrium. Pelvis movement control was difficult in 47% of cases. The 25% of SP was not able to stand the long sitting test but the Kendall test was successfully in the 71%. The quadriceps retracting test was successful in the 88% of SP and close result for the Thomas test (78%). The 28% shown disequilibrium in the one leg test. Conclusion The set-up of non-invasive, “whole individual” evaluation and his extensive systematical application has to be considered the mile stone of improving the efficacy of the motor activity programs set by motor science specialist and titrated on whole motor capacity of the subjects and their postural control. In this study the information of the individual profile has practically changed the setting of the motor activity program
