Manometers, Muscle Performance Assessment
Definition : Manometers designed to measure the pressure exerted between a body part and a solid surface while performing a pre-established sequence of physical exercises. These devices typically consist of an instrument (e.g., a dial manometric gauge) to measure the pressure on a pressure cell (sensor), an air-filled pressure cell, and an inflation bulb. Muscle performance assessment includes detection and determination of muscle activity during a great variety of exercises. Dedicated manometers intended to assess the muscles involved in spinal movements are also available. The manometers are used in diagnosis and to check modifications in muscle movement and coordination during therapy and rehabilitation.
