Individual adaptation of knee stabilizers requires selective monitoring in ACL rehabilitation
Important and often overlooked aspects of ACL injuries and surgery are the effects on contraction properties and function in individual muscles that stabilize the injured knee joint. TMG100 tensiomyography research shows that the effects of ACL injury and ensuing surgery affect the knee the individual muscle heads of the knee extensors and flexors differently. It is crucial to the effectiveness, efficiency and speed of the rehabilitation process that the adaptation patterns in each part of the quadriceps and hamstrings are closely followed and understood. In this way rehabilitation can be adapted to individual changes in muscle contraction properties and function to ensure better knee stability and faster return to normal activities within strictly defined safety limits that maintain the integrity of the recovering ACL. Selective TMG100 tensiomyography monitoring after ACL surgery of function and structural atrophy in affected muscles, as well as the functional ratios between knee flexors and extensors will significantly improve the rehabilitation process.
