Acclaimed US author, David Dansereau MSPT, has hailed the valuable performance feedback he gets from BPMpathway:
‘Measurement of joint range of motion and assessment of muscle strength are two important clinical skills in the practice of physical therapy. Having a consistent method of measuring both joint range of motion and strength is essential for accurate assessment of a patient’s present status, progress, and effectiveness of the treatment program.
Yet, with advances in medicine and technology, surprisingly there hasn’t been much new affordable innovation or alternatives to the standard goniometer and subjective manual muscle test available for therapists. That is until now. I have had the pleasure to be a beta tester for a new body performance measurement and analysis tool (BPMpathway) coming to the US marketplace soon, that is able to deliver cost-effective assessment of joint performance. BPMpathway uses an affordable lightweight sensor that delivers a hands free method for me to accurately test joint function, while automatically recording the performance data on patients.
I found through my own use and through testing other patients with neurological deficits that BPMpathway was able to accurately pick up on very subtle deficits of power, range of motion and quality of movement that oftentimes remain following neurological trauma.
I have found the live animated display of the patient’s movement to be motivating and engaging for the patient as well as helpful with providing me with valuable performance feedback during each treatment. Now with hands free assessment and results recorded instantly, I can put even more energy and time into getting my patient’s bodies back in balance with the help of BPMphysio.’
