Functional protocols allow you to evaluate in a few minutes walk, posture, mobility of the lumbar and cervical segment and dental occlusion, providing an indispensable tool for the definition of the most appropriate therapy and in the pre-post treatment analysis.
Surface electromyography solution for the objective evaluation of muscle activity.
The use of our FREEEMG 1000 EMG system together with the inertial sensor G-SENSOR allows an immediate visualization of the behavior of the reference muscle related to the movement performed.
Fast, simple and accurate evaluation of your patients.
Thanks to the functional protocols it is possible to perform the analysis of specific movements for each body region, in order to have a global assessment that allows the creation of a real “functional diagnosis” considered as the identification of any movement dysfunctions, residual potentials and compensation strategies.
How does the patient walk?
When and how much do you activate your muscles while walking?
With the WALK protocol it is possible to verify if the patient has a good coordination and symmetry of the movement or if, due to neurological or orthopedic disorders, the walk is compromised and altered in some of its phases.
Do the patient’s muscles work symmetrically in maintaining a certain posture?
With the STATIC POSTURE protocol it is possible to evaluate if the muscles of the right and left side of the trunk are activated symmetrically during the prolonged maintenance of a static posture. Deformity of the spine can start arising through a different activation of the paravertebral muscles.
Does your patient show a predisposition to low back pain?
With the FLEX-RELAX protocol it is possible to evaluate if the lumbar muscles relax in maintaining the flexed position of the trunk. The absence of the relaxation phenomenon indicates that the muscles are contracted when they should not be, potentiallys leading over time to the onset of low back pain.
Does your patient manage to move their arm smoothly?
Does your patient feel pain in the shoulder?
With the SHOULDER MOBILITY protocol it is possible to evaluate the patient’s ability to perform flexion, abduction or arm rotation movements in a fluid manner to highlight the presence of musculoskeletal disorders in the shoulder joint.
Does your patient show neck stiffness?
With the CERVICAL SPINE MOBILITY protocol it is possible to evaluate the subject’s predisposition to cervical pain to prevent its onset or chronicization. The possible presence of contractures at the level of the cervical muscles often results in an objective limitation of the movement.
Do your patient’s postural problems depend on incorrect dental occlusion?
With the DENTAL OCCLUSION protocol, neuromuscular balance can be assessed during occlusion. The protocol provides indexes that allow you to establish if the muscles are in balance and if therefore the patient has a correct occlusal barycenter.
