Abstract: Objective. The paper presents the problem of evaluation of the impact of ORA method on the improvement of the selected stabilometric and posturometric factors in girls with body statics problems. Method. The tests were conducted in a group of 40 girls, age 12 to 16, with diagnosed body statics problems. In order to evaluate how the ORA Method affects the studied variables, the sample was randomly divided in two groups of 20: a tested group and a control group. The examination program involved the evaluation of changes of the head position in the sagittal plane and in the frontal plane as well as changes of control of postural stability in both studied groups. Stabilometric tests by means of two-board CQ-electronic balance platform and photometric posture analysis using the System of Photographic Analysis of Postural Control (SFAPC, System Fotograficznej Analizy Postawy Ciała) were applied twice on all girls. Results: The applied therapy resulted in positive changes of all parameters in both studied groups. A definite improvement of the spatial head position has been noticed in the tested group, particularly for the head inclination angle (KNG, kąt nachylenia głowy) parameter, where these changes were significant. There were also significant changes in the tested group regarding total length of the sway path (SP) and path length in the frontal plane (Sway Path Medium-Lateral, SPML). Conclusions: 1. The analysis of the variables that characterize the spacial head position shows a tendency to improve the head’s position in the control tests, both in the group in which ORA device was used and in the control group. The improvement was more observable in the group using the ORA device. 2. Statistically relevant improvement was noticed only for the head inclination angle KNG in the group with the ORA device. 3. The analyzed stabilographic variables also showed the tendency to improve in both studied groups. However, in the group using ORA devices, this tendency was also more noticeable. 4. Statistically significant changes in the values of the studied variables were observed for total sway path (SP) length and frontal plane path (SPML) length in the group using ORA devices.
