Adjustments Screen The primary function of this screen is to complete the user’s set-up (proper alignment to the system) and to set, test, and adjust the desired resistance level.

Definitions The Up/Down buttons allow the shoulder and hip heights to be adjusted up or down to fine tune the system to the size of the user (Note: the system is preset to approximate appropriate settings, but individual to individual anthropomorphic variance requires “fine tuning� at this screen). Movement of the hip and shoulder bars occurs as long as the button is touched and stops when the button is released. The Plus/Minus buttons allow the resistance for the hip and shoulder (separate values) to be set, tested, and adjusted. Minimum setting is 0 and Maximum setting is 20. NOTE: See Resistance Chart in Appendix E of this of manual.

BioTechnology

Adjustments Adjustments (continued) To ensure proper set-up, the following procedure is required: Begin with the User stepping onto the 4.0 RTP. The User should position his/her body facing the computer screen, then back-up into the rear portion of the 4.0 RTP. The hands should be placed inside the curve of the shoulder bar handle on the black cushioned pads. Place hands where they are comfortable for the User. The User should move his/her body to fit hips inside the hip stabilizer harness. The feet should be placed in a comfortable position. Knees should be slightly flexed as instructed by a Qualified Professional. Note: When raising Hip and Shoulder bars-- Shoulder bar must be raised first. When lowering Hip & Shoulder bars-- Hip bar must be lowered first, then Shoulder bar. NOTE: The shoulders should REMAIN IN CONTACT with the pad while performing the activity. The Qualified Professional should emphasize to the User that rotation should come from the trunk of the body rather than using the hands and/or arms to create rotation.

Assessment on the RTP 4.0

22


BioTechnology

Assessment Assessments There are 2 assessments installed on the RTP 4.0. You can select these by entering the Assessment tab on the Start Up Screen. Both are measurable repeatable options that provide the clinician, trainer and user with data specific to individual range of motion (ROM), Isometric Strength, and Work Capacity. This screen provides for selection of assessment type as well as for entering the required, location-specific facility code. Note: The facility code is provided to the designated facility personnel at the time of the initial system installation. Use of a facility code prevents unsupervised use of the assessment protocols. Supervision is necessary to ensure proper procedures are followed and accurate results are obtained. Simply Select the Assessment you wish to perform and enter your facility code.

ROM and Isometric Strength Assessment Range Of Motion (ROM) and Isometric Strength (Static contractions against a fixed input ) are bundled into one assessment for ease of user set up and data entry. Both assessments represent biomarkers that create professional insight into a users rotational capabilities. From the user perspective, this information provides valuable feedback and motivation to continue exercise on the 4.0 RTP.

Upon Selection of the ROM/ Isometric Strength Assessment, the RTP 4.0 Software will default to the “Adjustments” screen, allowing modification to the Shoulder and Hip height bars, if needed. (For Set Up information, refer to pages 15 and 16 of this manual) ISO Points refer to the adjustable “LOCK RANGE” where the assessment will occur. The primary function of this screen is to complete the user’s set-up (proper alignment to the system). The Up/Down buttons allow the shoulder and hip heights to be adjusted up or down to fine tune the system to the size of the user (Note: the system is preset to approximate appropriate settings, but individual to individual anthropomorphic variance requires “fine tuning” at this screen). Movement of the hip and shoulder bars occurs as long as the button is touched and stops when the button is released.

24


BioTechnology

Shoulder and Hip ROM Assessment The ROM/ Isometric Strength protocol begins with a Shoulder ROM assessment. As instructed by the software, the user will actively rotate the shoulders only as far as they can without pain, to the left. The professional should instruct the user to rotate only as far as they can comfortably. Professionals should also establish protocol pointssuch as keeping the feet flat during rotation, keeping the knees “soft” and maintaining contact with the shoulder bar pad. The process for the Shoulder ROM assessment is: 1.)!Range of Motion (in Degrees) of the Shoulders Only to the Left 2.)!Range of Motion of the Shoulders Only to the Right Following the Shoulder ROM Assessment, the HIP ROM Assessment will begin. The sequence will be the same as the Shoulder Assessment: 3.)!Range of Motion (in Degrees) of the Hips Only to the Left 4.)!Range of Motion of the Hips Only to the Right

NOTE: Although the resistance is pre-set to zero (“0”) setting, the “tare weight” and inherent resistance of the mechanisms within the 4.0 RTP do elicit baseline resistance over which some individuals may be unable to successfully rotate. Qualified professional should also ensure that any user is deemed fit enough with regards to baseline strength and range of motion to attempt the assessment under their guidance.

25


BioTechnology

Shoulder and Hip Isometric Strength Assessment Although this version of the software indicates TORQUE as the measurement value, it is ISOMETRIC Strength that is being measured. Torque refers to degrees of angular momentum, while isometric strength is a static measurement. This title will be modified in future software iterations. The Process is identical to the ROM Assessment: 1.)!Pressure (ft lbs of pressure applied) by the Shoulders Only towards the Left 2.)!Pressure (ft lbs of pressure applied) by the Shoulders Only to the Right 3.) Pressure (ft lbs of pressure applied) by the Hips Only to the Left 4.) Pressure (ft lbs of pressure applied) by the Hips Only to the Right The Torque bar indicator will reference the pressure in real time.

Summary Screen The summary screen appears when the assessment is completed. The data indicated provides information to the user and/or qualified professional about the assessment conducted. This is a valuable screen that indicates symmetry, or asymmetry in both Shoulder and Hip rotational Range of Motion and Isometric Strength. This information may form a baseline of data for future comparison, provide insight into specific movement deficits or weaknesses. A qualified professional should assist in the interpretation of data.

30-Second Work Assessment The 30-Second Work Assessment function allows a qualified professional to establish a “baseline” or “snapshot” of the user’s current functional status with regards to core strength/stability and range of motion. This 30-Second Assessment is designed to allow the user to rotate with as much range of motion and speed as comfortably possible for the duration of the test period. In most cases, the user is instructed to complete as many “quality” repetitions as possible within an appropriate and comfortable range of motion and under an appropriate level of resistance as defined by the Qualified Professional. NOTE: Users should graduate to this assessment. If functional standing trunk rotation exercises are new to the user, this assessment can promote overtraining or over exertion due to the nature of accumulating a work response. Qualified Professional caution is recommended. “Power Output” over a 30-Second period is provided, graphically on this screen, as a function of (1) user-generated peak torque multiplied by (2) angular velocity. NOTE: This is a valuable work assessment, in the context of standing trunk rotational capacity on the 4.0 RTP. Qualified analysts should make determinations of this assessments transference into functional work environments.

“Peak Range” is defined as the system output of maximum degrees of displaced range of motion from zero degrees (neutral, forward facing) to either the left or right side. “Peak Power” is calculated as a function of user-generated peak torque multiplied by the angular velocity. “Total Work” is presented here as calculated is (1) average power (average torque x average angular velocity) multiplied by (2) total time for the exercise bout. It is presented in “horsepower seconds” (average horsepower output x total time). This information may form a baseline of data for future comparison, provide insight into specific movement deficits or weaknesses.

Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) PAR-Q For most people physical activity should not pose any problem or hazard. PAR-Q has been designed to identify the small number of adults for whom physical activity might be inappropriate or those who should have medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them. Common sense is your best guide in answering these few questions. Please read them carefully and check the yes or no opposite the question if it applies to you. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Has your doctor ever said you have heart trouble? Do you frequently have pains in your heart and chest? Do you often feel faint or have spells of severe dizziness? Has a doctor ever said your blood pressure was too high? Has your doctor ever told you that you have a bone or joint problem such as arthritis that has been aggravated by exercise, or might be made worse with exercise? Is there a good physical reason not mentioned here why you should not follow an activity program even if you wanted to? Are you over age 65 and not accustomed to vigorous exercise?

If you answered YES to one or more questions: If you have not recently done so, consult with your personal physician by telephone or in person before increasing your physical activity and/or taking a fitness test. If you answered NO to all questions: If you answered PAR-Q accurately, you have reasonable assurance of your present suitability for an exercise test. Signed:
