Locomotor Biofeedback system Kinesis

Locomotor Biofeedback system Kinesis is a modern psychophysiologic training system for treatment of different functional derangement which can be observied during a patient suffers from different kinds of Nervious system and Locomotor system disorders.

Operating with our biofeedback system a doctor can perform the locomotor system and muscle activity training on the basis of EMG registration and interpretation.

This method of correction, treatment and training is the most effective and is recommended when a patient suffers from different paralytic conditions evoked by CNS affection: cerebral spastic infantile paralysis, consequences of strokes, craniocerebral injuries, for functional rehabilitation after traumas and peripheral nerve trunks as well.The method has the great significance in complex correction of posture defects and diseases of back muscles and backbone.

The system is characterized by high precision of physiological parameters registration in real time without modulating fouling of signal during signal processing. Operating with our biofeedback system a doctor can perform the high quality precise registration of individual muscles electrical signal parameters because our system is designed on the basis of modern digital components. So patients can analyze peculiarities of own physiological processes in real time and influence on them in interactive mode.

It is peculiarity of our system that there is an intellectual in-built system for creation of a mathematical individual model matrix describing real muscle parameters before a biofeedback training session. This model as a basic reference signal system gets an investigator a possibility to adapt to individual patient characteristics. It raises precision level of psychological appreciation and favours more accurate generation of a new motor pattern.

Application spheres

  • Pediatric and general neurology;
  • Neurosurgery;
  • Traumotology and orthopaedics;
  • Sports medicine;
  • Rehabilitation medicine;
  • Pediatrics;
  • Therapy treatment.

Functions and capabilities

The system enables biofeedback training on the basis of electromyography signals. The analyzer Kinesis is used for biopotentials registration and allows carrying out correction on the basis of two EMG channels. The analyzer is connected with a personal computer through the USB data interface unit.

 The
The "Run"game

Software for complex biofeedback system is presented as collection of computer acoustic and visual acts which were designed in a game form. A patient can influence on these acts by changing muscle tension. During controlling process patient should find normal positive result which will be displayed on a computer screen in an understandable and comfortable form and inform a patient about changing of functional parameters of a muscle.

A games situation increases the level of receptivity to represented information and patient motivation to training especially for children.

It is possible to institute one time therapy or a course of treatment. The in-built expert system allows a doctor to learn patient possibilities and to perform training according to this information.

EMG biofeedback system is usually applied to treat motor function and neuromuscular disorders.

Software

Software the biofeedback system is controlled under is full-function in no low than the Windows 7 environment. A biofeedback system program is user-friendly that is the main unique feature of the software. There are no other requirements for operating with the software for a doctor except to being computer literate. The program is operated by doctor and patient as well in special modes. There is the option of using of two computers with one device. In this case the doctor operates one of these two computers and with own modes, also the patient operates another computer. The main window of the biofeedback system program is similar to Windows desktop environment. It is possible to do the following acts in the main window:

  • To open the patient data base.
  • To perform the biofeedback training.
  • To read the software description.
  • To watch the contact data.

The database is used for patient data input, for patient data and investigation results storage as well. There are no requirements to use the database because the system is referred to training equipment. But in case of need there is a function of report card forming containing dynamics of changing of training results.

In a training mode a doctor is able to analyze a signal, to get the model of trained organism systems condition (it is power index for muscle), to control activity level of patient and to start the game. Then the patient begins playing game.
