We are pleased to introduce to you our Strength Diagnostic service at Marylebone Health Group. Three levels of service are offered that can help you on your injury risk reduction, rehabilitation, or performance journey. Each level of service will give you a numerical level of your output and measure that through a bespoke report against norms and peers so you understand where you sit or at what level you’re operating at and will allow us to set goals for you to achieve.
Service in Detail
Single Joint Assessment (Kinematic Pair)
This assessment is used to understand the capacity or vulnerability as well as the performance around a single joint area. We define this as a kinematic pair to understand how forces are being produced across a single joint. An assessment at this level will use either Kanga Tech and/or ForceDecks.
Testing involves a warm-up and movement preparation to ensure you’re prepared for max force efforts around the area. This can take up to 60 minutes, but depending on the region and equipment used, it’s between 30-60 minutes.
Multi-Joint Profile Kinematic Chain
This assessment is defined as a kinematic chain as we use it to understand how forces are being transferred across joints. This service gives you a more in-depth look at your strength and performance capabilities within a kinematic chain, especially at the lower limb level. An assessment will involve the use of KangaTech and/or ForceDecks.
Testing involves a warm-up and movement preparation to ensure preparedness for max force efforts across the kinematic chain. This can take up to 90 minutes depending on the regions tested and the equipment used.
Full Body Assessment (Kinematic System)
This level of assessment includes isometric testing from head to toe with KangaTech, vertical force production and jump testing with ForceDecks, muscular capacity/ endurance tests and a movement screen to understand how well your kinematic system is working and how we can optimise this to achieve your goals.
Testing involves a warm-up and movement preparation to ensure preparedness to deliver max force efforts. This includes Kanga Tech and ForceDecks This is an in-depth comprehensive assessment and can last from 2 hours.
We kindly ask for 48 hours notice to change or cancel an appointment.
Any cancellations less than 48 hours will be subject to a full cancellation charge.
