Movement Assessment Lab

Movement Assessment Lab
Integrated Sports Medicine Movement Analysis Laboratory

An accurate diagnosis is essential to ensure that the injured athlete receives appropriate treatment and rehabilitation, and correct information related to the prognosis, In most cases the diagnosis is straightforward and already put forward by the athlete himself. However, these ‘simple’ cases might not be as simple as initially expected.

 

The Movement Lab studies sport biomechanics and provides evidence-based injury prevention protocols. specialize in kinematics, motion analysis, functional assessment, and injury prevention.

Movement Assessment

Movement Analysis Test commonly used to assess performance of healthy athletes and as a measure of progress during rehabilitation from knee injury, used to evaluated the lower limb status of athletes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) and evaluate the biomechanical components of the involved (operated) and uninvolved legs of athletes with ACLR and compare these legs with those of uninjured athletes (controls), It also helps to evaluate whether the patient is ready to return to sport training, reducing the risk of re-injury.

This Movement Lab features:

  • Vicon Motion Capture system (total of eight cameras)
  • Delsys Trigno Wireless EMG system (total of fourteen channels)
  • AMTI AccuSway Portable 
  • AMTI Embedded Force Plates
  • NeuroCom® SMART Balance Master
  • GE Portable Diagnostic Ultrasound
  • BIOPAC MP-150 system (total of two sets with eight channels)
  • CSMi HUMAC NORM (Isokinetic dynamometer)
  • Multiple workstations equipped with computers for use by research assistants (undergraduate/graduate) and faculty members
  • Proprioception and postural stability equipment
  • Non-surgical treatment/management of musculoskeletal injury/issues
  • Orthopaedic rehabilitation
  • Preventative strategies and extras which are beneficial to the community

 

Isokinetic Test

 

Isokinetic testing is a strength test for the muscles around the knee using specific equipment. It’s used to compare the strength of the affected knee against the unaffected leg. 

This test is useful if you have a knee injury, are recovering from surgery or suffering from a long-term problem with your knee. Isokinetic testing data can help to highlight weaknesses of specific muscle groups then help us to plan a patient’s rehabilitation activities and tailor your rehabilitation program.

If you’ve had an injury, surgery or are suffering from a long-term problem, you may benefit from an isokinetic test. The test allows for:

  • Safe loading through the joint range
  • Isolated measurement of muscle strength
  • Comparing results between sessions
  • Using data to plan a rehabilitation programme
  • Comparison with the opposite unaffected limb
