Mikrolar Provides A Testing Platform for Spinal Control Research
USM Center for Orthopedic Research in Lansang, Michigan has been working to develop a better method to study spinal control in an effort to understand the mechanisms of manual medicine in treating pain.
Mikrolar's R3000 Rotopod assesses the accuracy and speed of spinal control. With a person seated on the Rotopod, low frequency disturbances are applied and the person's ability to reject these disturbances is evaluated. People with fast and accurate spine control can reject more disturbances, particularly at higher frequencies.
