This is an elastic structure that follows the patients movements and informs them when they have reached / passed a predefined joint angle.
This aid works on relative angles, also monitoring joints that do not have a stable rotation axis, such as the thoracic scapula because, unlike other joint measuring systems, it is not positioned on the fulcrum, but is moved away in relation to the movement of the joint segments, closing the circuit and activating the sensor. The instrument is put in place using velcro strips or double-sided tape applied to the skin. Adjustment is done by changing the length of a cable laid parallel to the elastic.
When doing the exercises if elevation, tipping or rotation of the thoracic scapula is picked up, when it should be stabilised, the feedback is very effective. Also, given the difficulty of correctly perceiving the area, application of the vibrating pad on the muscle group to be activated, facilitates control.
NOTE: This aid can also be used for other joints and various tasks.
