Biomechanics laboratory

Published on: 27/07/2016

In Mutua Universal we have innovative laboratories for the functional assessment in the evaluation of the incapacity to work in processes of pain musculoesquéleticos at the disposal of our partners.

What is the Biomechanics?

Through instruments of advanced technology is measured with accuracy aspects such as the mobility, force, resistance, fatigabilidad, etc, of the harmed bodily region, describing thus the real functional situation in which is found.


When is used?

  • During the follow-up of the process of Rehabilitation to monitor the functional evolution of the harmed region.
  • As an objective proof to determine fehacientemente the functional stagnation or recovery of the harmed region.

Disease processes more frequently analysed

  • Cervicalgias, dorsalgias, lower back pains.
  • Pathology subacromial, injuries of the manguito rotador.
  • Instability of the shoulder.
  • Epicondilitis, epitrocleitis.
  • Tendinitis of DeQuervain.
  • Pathology meniscal or ligamentosa of knee.
  • Syndrome femoropatelar, condromalacia rotuliana.
  • Sprain, instability of
  • Talalgias, fasciitis to plant.
  • Fractures of any location.
  • Fibromialgia, chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • Vertigo, instability.

Technological equipments

  1. Inertial sensors of the movement 3D: through positioned sensors directly on the patient is analysed with accuracy the spaciousness, speed, harmony and repeatability of movements of the joint or bodily region injured.
  2. Dinamometría isometric: instrument that it allows studying in a controlled and sure way the skills of the bodily region harmed to develop activities of force.
  3. Electromyography of area: through positioned electrodes on the patient the contractures presence or absence or alterations of the muscular tone is detected. This tool is of special interest in the Sd of the cervical whiplash or in the lower back pain.
  4. Platform baropodométrica: located platform down to the floor, describes the quality of the pressures plant during the bipedestación static and the mobility. It allows estimating the skills of the injured joint tolerate the advancement.
  5. Platform posturográfica of the balance: located platform down to the floor, registers oscillations of the gravity centre throughout a battery of test, detecting, quantifying and monitoring situations of instability if it had them.
