Frequently Asked Questions.
Below you will find answers to common questions about our products.
Is Back in Action a tool only for young patients?
Absolutely not. There is no age limit to using Back in Action, the test is open to any athlete. The test obviously requires a good athletic and coordinative ability and therefore is certainly more suitable for people who play sports or who practiced it before an injury.
Why Back in Action instead of the isokinetic test?
Back in Action is a test that measures, in addition to strength, the performance of lower limbs in terms of balance, coordination, agility and speed: for an athlete who has to return to play the strength measurement may not be enough to determine his complete recovery. In addition, studies carried out in the past have shown that the two tests are equivalent in the measurement of force with a very low correlation in the results obtained.
What are the components of Back in Action?
Back in Action consists of a laptop with the software installed, an unstable board, an inertial sensor, an elastic band to wear it at hip heigth and a kit of hurdles for agility and speed tests.
