Read this very interesting research article that used the dorsaVi sensors on elite gymnasts to assess the Lumbar Spine ROM during a simulated landing task (SLT). This article written by Lawrence Sonvico et al from The English Institute of Sport was published in The International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy.
The goal of the study was to develop normative data for lumbar spine ROM as well as lumbar spine ROM during a simulated landing task. The dorsaVi sensors using the Low Back Module were used to assess thirty elite gymnasts. Excellent validity has been shown with the dorsaVi system which is why it was chosen for the study. The data collected provides a baseline for lumbar spine ROM in an asymptomatic gymnastic population providing clinicians with reference values for rehabilitation programs for lumbar spine injuries.
