Our Physicians Have Game
Texas Health Sports Medicine has specialized research equipment including:
- Biodex Multi-Joint System Pro — The most advanced, versatile and reliable technology ever developed for testing and rehabilitation of the human musculoskeletal system. This machine offers testing and rehabilitation services for the knee, ankle, and hip plus the shoulder, elbow, forearm and wrist. Modes of operation for exercise and testing include isokinetic, passive, isometric, isotonic and reactive eccentric.
- GE Diagnostic Ultrasound Machine — A state of the art diagnostic ultrasound machine offering high frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within the body. These images can provide valuable information for treating various musculoskeletal conditions.
- MicroFET Isometric Handheld Dynamometer — A portable Force Evaluation and Testing (FET) dynamometer, designed specifically for taking objective, reliable, and quantifiable muscle testing measurements.
- LEAP Motion Capture System — This camera system enables comprehensive data collection of joint kinematics and objectively measures overall joint movement patterns by tracking reflective markers during common athletic maneuvers.
