NMT

NeuroMuscular Testing and Training (“NMT”) Device

  • A device made specifically to objectively measure the patient's functional reach in various planes during assessment to get a baseline

  • Continue measuring during each treatment session while performing therapeutic activities

  • Facility can send objective data to insurance companies & medical providers to indicate progress

  • Allows each session to be functionally measureable
  • Activate the lower body / trunk muscles for better balance retraining

  • It allows the ability to perform balance, visual-motor, visual-perceptual and / or cognition based activities

  • Decreases set-up / clean-up time

  • Fun and easy to use

  • On wheels, Portable

  • Collapses for easy storage - when not in use

  • Many activities can be performed with the same device while measuring the progress

  • Immediate Biofeedback for the patient facilitates intrinsic motivation

  • Numbers motivate the patient to perform better each time, thus patients are intrinsically motivated

  • Intrinsic motivation leads to better performance and better outcomes

  • All of which can be documented in actual numbers - OBJECTIVE DATA
  • Set up the device in front of the patient

  • Take the initial measurement of the device plane with respect to the patient (angular measurement at the base)

  • Adjust the arms to desired angle

  • Now set up the extension arms around the patient per your desire, depending on which movements you are trying to see improvement in

  • Have the magnetic pieces ready in the cups of the extension arms and/or place the magnetic pieces on the arms at the desired distance (target distance)

  • Instruct the patient to:
    • Pick up the magnetic pieces from the extension arm cups and place them on the specific color arm

    • Take the magnetic piece from the specific color arm and place it in the cup; or

    • Visually look for & find the specific piece (Indicating which color arm the magnetic piece is on... Visual scanning)
  • Vision Exercises

  • Cognitive Activity incorporated within the same treatment session

  • Possible to treat two patients on the same device

  • Pediatric Size to accommodate people with height limitation
  • Prism Health Services has developed an easy to use form which allows you to just plug in the numbers / observations from your session and file the paper away to refer back to future progress

  • Document 2 sessions on one single paper
