Development of motion analysis diagnostic application
Most cases of stiffness and pain in the musculoskeletal system are caused by a lack of balance in daily activities. Once
the pattern of daily movement becomes habitual, it induces more stiffness and pain in a chain reaction, placing strains
on specific muscles and joints. To clarify the underlying mechanism of these causes, it is necessary to thoroughly
understand the position of the skeleton, and how muscles function at rest and during movement. We incorporate medical
and mechanical findings, perform analysis in the biomechanics field with Professor Nagura at Keio University, and make
use of opinions from top trainers.
Motion capture technology, used in motion analysis devices, is useful for quantifying motion. Motion capture is a technology that digitally records the movements of real people and objects, which has conventionally been used to measure specific parts depending on the needs of the research field, or to simply measure joint angles. In contrast, we measure the balance of the whole body, and visualize the twist and distortion of joints.
Referrals to Specialists, and
Formulation/Guidance of Improvement Program
When we experience trouble in the musculoskeletal system, treatment and training appropriate for the symptoms are
required. On the other hand, the specialty of orthopedic surgeons is subdivided for each musculoskeletal unit, such as
shoulders, knees and hands.
We make referrals to specialists of each musculoskeletal unit suitable for the medical condition, following consultations with sports doctors including Dr. Hideo Matsumoto, formerly Professor of Sports Medicine, Keio University School of Medicine, and President of Japan Sports Medicine Foundation, a public interest incorporated foundation. In addition, in cooperation with doctors, we provide counseling sessions with top trainers and musculoskeletal function improvement programs based on the results of an original motion analysis diagnostic program. Please contact us for more information.
