In preschool children ages postural disorders and spinal deformities are among the most common diseases. Without timely detection, poor posture in preschool and school children may cause extremely serious health problems in adulthood. In order to determine the “real picture” of sagittal plane poor posture among preschool children was realized a research on a sample of 68 children aged 7. In order to evaluate the state of the postural status of the spinal column in sagittal plane, the device “Spinal Mouse” (IDIAG, Fehraltdorf, Switzerland) was used. Based on the results, in sagittal plane 39.13% boys and 17.39% girls have thoracic spine bad posture, 30.43% boys and 17.39% girls have lumbar spine bad posture and 17.39% boys and 2.87% girls have inclination bad posture. Also, Multivariate statistical analysis found that between the subsamples observed there is a statistically significant difference of all examined characteristics of the postural status in relation to gender at the level Wilks` Lambda 0.595, F = 6.927, p = 0.000.
