SpineForce Research Studies 'Effects of Reactive Neuromuscular Training on the Side Bridge Endurance Test: A Pilot Study' Dennis Enix DC*, Clayton Skaggs DC*, Michael Vianin DC**, Rodger Tepe PhD***@
Purpose Determine if reactive neuromuscular training with SpineForce Reactive Neuromuscular Trainer may contribute to reducing lower back pain.
Conclusion Spinal stabilizing muscle exercises aid in the development of muscle tone and endurance, vital to preventing and treating lower back injuries. Reactive neuromuscular training with SpineForce significantly increased spinal stabilizing muscle endurance, and therefore has the potential to be a useful rehabilitation tool in prevention and treatment of lower back pain.
'Using the Spineforce Technique In Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation' - B. Maertens de Noordhout MD, et. al. (Centre Neurologique et de Riadaptation Fonctionnelle de Fraiture, B4557 Fraiture en Condroz, Belgium)
Purpose To evaluate the use of SpineForce on neurological and locomotive disorders.
Conclusion SpineForce re-education allows for comprehensive muscular strengthening and proprioceptive work, beneficial for various neurological and orthopedic pathologies. Of SpineForce, the following general observations were made: - is well received by the patients - is suitable even for very elderly persons (80+) suffering from severe disabilities - allows patients to do targeted proprioceptive and balance muscle solicitations - helps patients regain automatic reflexes - provides comprehensive muscular strengthening - facilitates unique, intensive stimulation of psychomotor functions - benefits axial balance (important for rehabilitation of walking ability) - aids orthopedic/ lower limb articulations or injuries
'Premature Aging and Optimal Performance of Athletes and Sport Enthusiasts: SpineForce - A New Approach.' - J.M. Ferret Midecin de l'equipe de France de Football Sporea, Centre de Midecine du Sport - Lyon Gerland- France
Purpose To evaluate SpineForce's ability to maintain mobility/fluidity of movement and overall locomotive skills- including posture, coordination, mobility, range of motion, etc. Since athletes and sport enthusiasts put intense strain on their bodies and often experience accelerated deterioration, this was the study subject group.
Conclusion SpineForce compehensvie muscle coordination training helped subjects maintain fluidity, harmonious movement, range of motion and locomotive skill.
'Assessment of Spineforce for Control and Improvement of Balance in Aging Subjects' - Saggini R., Accorsi K., et.al., University G. D'annunzio, Chieti, Italy
Purpose To analyze SpineForce's effect on overall balance, posture and homeostatic capacities of the spine in aging subjects.
Conclusion SpineForce improved the walk (balance, posture, equilibrium) and exertion control of aged subjects 'Effects of Reactive Neuromuscular Training on the Side Bridge Endurance Test: A Pilot Study -Dennis Enix, DC, et. al., Logan College of Chiropractic, USA
Purpose The hypothesis tested in the current study was that SpineForce reactive neuromuscular training will increase intrinsic muscle endurance as measured by the McGill Side Bridge Test.
Conclusion SpineForce spinal stabilizing muscle exercises aid in the development of muscle tone and endurance important for spinal stability. Adequate strength and endurance of these muscles has been shown (McGill 1999) to be an important element in the prevention and treatment of lower back injury. SpineForce reactive neuromuscular training significantly increased spinal stabilizing muscle endurance, and therefore has the potential to be a useful rehabilitation tool in prevention and treatment of LBP.
'Efficacy of SpineForce compared to classic exercise rehabilitation program for patients with chronic low back pain' BOJINCA M., BIDA D., MIHAI C. MILICESCU M., CORNEA R.
Purpose Assess efficacy of a SpineForce exercise program compared to traditional exercise programs in the treatment of chronic low back pain (CBLP).
Conclusion A standardized exercise program with SpineForce is effective, well tolerated, and induces significant improvement for patients with chronic low back pain. Compared with traditional exercise programs, SpineForce induces significant increases in pain improvement, trunk/core flexor muscle strength, and functional condition. These results open up many new prospects for the use of this technique in rehabilitation programs.
'Using the Spineforce System in the Treatment of Cellulite' - Dr Blanchemaison, Paris
Purpose To analyze SpineForce's effect on cellulite.
Conclusion SpineForce can act on the improvement of lower limbs intra-muscular venous back flow - thus helping cellulite and reducing water retention. 'Physiological Response During a Standardized Training Session on a SpineForce System' - Pr Portero, CHU Pitii Salpitrihre, Paris
Purpose To evaluate the cardio-respiratory response during a SpineForce standardized training session and the muscle activation level during a specific, separate testing session.
Conclusion Thus, this study clearly demonstrates that a SpineForce standardized session training induces a marked physiological increase in healthy subjects promising findings for fitness and rehabilitation programs
'Changes In Posture, Equilibrium and Strength Parameters Following Training With Spineforce Device in Healthy Subjects' - Pr. P. Thoumie MD, et. al., Rothschild Hospital & Human Performance Institute, Paris
Purpose To analyze, on healthy subjects, the effects of a SpineForce training program in improving posture, equilibrium and muscular function@@ the locomotive function.
Conclusion These results suggested that posture and equilibrium was responsive to SpineForce training, also proving that the system s flexibility affords multiple solutions of exercises according to the objectives of the users@@ including elderly or disabled people with sensory disabilities.@ @ 'Spineforce Platform: An Innovative Methodology for Postural Re-Education Techniques' - R. Galozzi R. & M. Faina, Italian National Olympic Committee, Italy
Purpose To analyze the possibility to include SpineForce in postural rehabilitation training for athletic/sport subjects (effect on postural adjustment, coordination, neuromuscular and mechanical characteristics).
Conclusion After 2 months training on SpineForce, stability in standing position, right/left coordination and balance recovery of subjects are improved. Regarding maximal force, muscle groups are re-balanced. SpineForce has an important role in postural re-education.
'Pelvi-perineal Statics'- Professor Mares, CHU Caremeau, Ninmes
Purpose To evaluate SpineForce's benefits to genito-urinary pathologies, treating women with prolapse or urinary incontinence. (The perineology (pelvi-perineology) covers in fact a group of pathologies: disorders of pelvic static; disorders of the urinary and/or anal continence; vulvo-vaginal disorders; sexual problems).
Conclusion New dynamic, comprehensive rehabilitation techniques with SpineForce may help postural pelvic rehabilitation training, on pelvi-perineal statics.
