How long have you been a Noraxon user?
We received a Portable Motion and EMG system in 2015 and quickly integrated them as part of our daily clinical practice to quantify movement patterns.
What population do you mainly work with?
With Aspetar, professional athletes. We use the system to complete pre-season screening and track the rehabilitation process of the athletes after ACL injury. The screening consists of the analysis of foot strike patterns and pressure distribution using an instrumented treadmill.
What Noraxon technology have you integrated into your workflow?
So far we have used video, EMG, IMUs, and the instrumented treadmill. The integration per drag and drop is very easy and the connection with the USB is fairly easy. Using the treadmill to detect steps is favorable as the creation of reports is very straight forward and creates clinically meaningful data.
