The HUMAC360 is a small box that offers big results. Measuring 4” x 4” x 4” and weighing just 4 pounds, the HUMAC360 attaches to any patient or exercise equipment in seconds, using a 16’ retractable nylon belt. When the belt is pulled the HUMAC Software reports velocity, distance, and if a weight is recorded, power. These functional parameters are displayed on the screen for proper pacing and distance and in reports for evidence based rehabilitation. It could not be easier.Read the Full Story
Achilles Tendinitis or Tendinosis
The concentric results often show a peak and then a rapid drop followed by recovery. This is because the tendon is placed under different stresses compared to the leverage through the ankle. The mid range (plantar grade) is most commonly affected as this demonstrates the highest lever disadvantage.
In slow eccentric tests there is often a concave mid section to the results this is most likley due to neural inhibition of the muscle/s to protect the affected structure.
In fast eccentric tests the results often peak but then just demonstrate pain inhibition with very irregular mid to late curve results.
