The machines allows us to analyse with great accuracy the strength of muscles close to the spine. We test strength in a range of different positions and the results are depicted as a strength curve. We also measure the mobility of the spine in both flexion and extension.
The results are then compared with reference data obtained from tests on individuals with a healthy back. This shows whether there is a muscle or functional weakness. The back test provides an ideal basis, therefore from which to compile strength training or therapy programmes. Tests are repeated at regular intervals in order to provide objective information on progress.
