Title
(EN) MUSCLE ASSESSMENT SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D'ÉVALUATION MUSCULAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method are described for assessing muscle parameters (e.g., force(s) exerted, force dynamics, strength, voluntary muscle movement, etc.) in a diagnostic or therapeutic environment. The muscle parameter assessment system includes a force-gauging device and a computing device. The force-gauging device includes at least one pressure-sensing component (e.g., transducer, pressure sensor, etc.) configured to respond to a force applied by a subject and produce one or more output signals. The force-gauging device can further include electronic circuitry configured to convert the output signals into data indicative of a muscle parameter. The computing device is configured to build a muscle assessment protocol based on one or more patient characteristics and/or user input. The computing device is further configured to execute one or more muscle assessments via the force-gauging device, receive data from the force-gauging device, and determine one or more muscle measurements for a subject.
(FR)
La présente invention décrit un système et un procédé d'évaluation de paramètres musculaires (par exemple, force(s) exercée(s), dynamique de force, résistance, mouvement musculaire volontaire, etc.) dans un environnement de diagnostic ou thérapeutique. Le système d'évaluation de paramètre musculaire comprend un dispositif de mesure de force et un dispositif de calcul. Le dispositif de mesure de force comprend au moins un composant de détection de pression (par exemple, transducteur, détecteur de pression, etc.) configuré pour répondre à une force appliquée à un sujet et produire un ou plusieurs signaux de sortie. Le dispositif de mesure de force peut en outre comprendre un circuit électronique configuré pour convertir les signaux de sortie en données indiquant un paramètre musculaire. Le dispositif de calcul est configuré pour bâtir un protocole d'évaluation musculaire sur la base d'une ou plusieurs caractéristiques de patient et/ou données d'entrée de l'utilisateur. Le dispositif de calcul est en outre configuré pour exécuter une ou plusieurs évaluations musculaires par l'intermédiaire du dispositif de mesure de force, recevoir les données provenant du dispositif de mesure de force, et déterminer une ou plusieurs mesures musculaires pour un sujet.
