Neuromuscular testing and feedback training unit
The whole body can be tilted and rotated in standing position with unsupported trunk, software and electronical-controlled
Apart from its diagnostic functions the CENTAUR has its main focus on the treatment. It can be perfectly used to define the angle position and respectively the momentum of the examined person in all planes.
Reporting amongst others includes momentum values (calculated by angle position, trunk length and patient weight) as well as sensorimotor information (deviation of the unsupported trunk)
Due to an intelligent safety system implemented in the pelvic fixation cushion and different stop functions CENTAUR is safe for customers, subjects and patients.
The CENTAUR for the first time offers the possibility to diagnose neuromuscular imbalances of the autochthonous muscles fast, easy and accurate. For this purpose, a unique system was developed, which allows the determination of standard and actual values on the basis of the anatomical data of the patient and the program parameters.
The CENTAUR allows the therapist, trainer or physician to generate siginificant, quantifiable and reproducible information in less than 20 minutes. The direct relevance of the results for certain back indications increases the value of the information for occupational medicine, rehabilitation and sports medicine as well as for qualifying examinations and aptitude tests.
