Biomechanical tests – what is it?

Biomechanical tests assess the functional abilities of the body. The tests performed at the Functional Diagnostics Center in Warsaw include the analysis of walking, running, jumping and other motor skill activities, foot load tests, as well as balance assessment and measurement of muscle strength.

All tests are safe and non-invasive, performed under the supervision of experienced specialists with an M.A. in physiotherapy and functional diagnosticians.

The advantages of biomechanical tests

  • It is a comprehensive assessment of the efficiency of the musculoskeletal system.
  • Tests identify the capabilities of the body.
  • They help to reduce the risk of possible injuries.
  • They allow you to improve your sports performance.
  • Moreover, they give the opportunity to check the progress of treatment and rehabilitation, as well as training.

Indications for biomechanical research

The Functional Diagnostics Center is a place that should be visited by everyone who wants to learn about the limitations and possibilities of their body, and especially to identify the smallest dysfunctions and adjust their training plan to their individual needs. The innovative method of studying the human body using modern biomechanical devices enables a comprehensive analysis of the efficiency of the musculoskeletal system.

Biomechanical tests are dedicated to people who are starting to train. They are aimed at adjusting the level of effort to the capabilities of your body and detecting dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system. The Functional Diagnostics Center is also dedicated to people who practice competitive sports, as well as professional athletes who want to reduce the risk of injury and improve their sports performance. Biomechanical tests objectively monitor the progress of the treatment and rehabilitation process.

Consider functional tests if:

  • you have undergone a muscle injury: bruises, tears, strains, ruptures, e.g., Achilles tendon,
  • you have experienced joint injuries: dislocations, sprains, ligament damage, and others,
  • you have experienced a fracture or degenerative changes,
  • you want to monitor and increase the effectiveness of the postoperative treatment process (also after arthroplasty operations),
  • you want to know the functional cause of pain and increased susceptibility to injuries,
  • you want to safely return to sports/recreational activities after an injury or surgery,
  • you want to improve your training and sports technique.

If you plan to train at the CMTS Training Center, you should undergo functional tests and learn about your limitations.

Biomechanical tests for children

If your child plays sports or dreams of a sports career, take advantage of the knowledge of the Carolina Medical Center specialists who work with youth sports clubs on a daily basis. Research in the field of sports medicine, which we perform at the Functional Diagnostics Center, allows us to identify the capabilities of the child’s body, detect postural defects and prevent injuries.
