BACKGROUND: In clinical practice, video motion analysis is widely used. It is known that such a higher mental function as creative thinking manifests itself in the motor activity of the body, as a result of which the movement becomes expressive. Since the quality of the images presented affects the organization of movement, it is presumably possible to characterize this psychosomatic connection through an assessment of the expressiveness of movement.

AIMS: fixation in graphic and digital format of expressive movement, as well as the identification of spatio-temporal criteria for the quantitative assessment of expressiveness.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: The experiment involved 3 healthy volunteers with different levels of acting training. The structure of expressive movement was presented in a graphic and digital format, which made it possible to calculate spatio-temporal indicators and give an objective quantitative assessment of the quality of expressiveness of movements of the participants in the experiment.

RESULTS: It has been established that expressive movements arise with the integration of the following components: motor abilities and motor experience, movement image, plastically expressive structure of movement construction. In addition, expressive movements affect deep psychological functions: imagination, creative thinking, emotional control, etc.

CONCLUSION: The inclusion in the course of medical rehabilitation of patients with various pathologies of the direction of ergotherapy, based on the analysis and assessment of the expressiveness of movement, will contribute to the complex restoration of the connection between consciousness and movement, correction of psychosomatic deviations, the expansion of movement patterns, improvement of body feeling and movement control.
