    Posture is one of the most important factors in spinal stability. To investigate the spinal instability, a tool was developed using the Thrustline theory. A pilot postural data pool was formed from a sample population of 40 healthy males and females for this computational model by using a device called Spinal Mouse® (SM) to record the relative positions of the vertebral bodies firstly. Then, the 2D coordinates of the vertebral bodies were calculated by an in-house developed code. Student's t-tests showed significance of difference between the postures was mostly higher for X coordinates with p-value of
