By measuring deficits and excess activation, you ensure you know whether to increase or decrease muscle activity for a specific movement
Deficit and excess activation
Use your mDurance to detect poorly activated muscles and learn techniques to retrain them
Main benefits of detecting activation deficit
What Is Activation Deficit and Excess?
Activation Deficit is a defense mechanism that impairs agonist muscles and/or synergies, leading to strength deficits and/or atrophy.
Coactivation Excess (commonly called muscle compensation) occurs when a muscle is overactivated during a task or movement.
Both phenomena hinder or delay your patients’ recovery.
What It Means if Your Patient Has Deficit or Excess Activation?
Deficit or excess activation relates to functional abnormalities such as:
- Poor quality in the movement control.
- Muscle atrophy.
- Reduced joint strength development.
- Muscle compensation in muscles we do not want to work.
- Limited range of motion.
- Increased risk of injury or relapse.
