Measuring the Gluteus muscle during exercise
The Glutspect module is suitable for magnetic resonance and has been especially designed to stress-test the buttock musculature (Musculus gluteus maximus) in a magnetic resonance bore. The subject is therefore placed in the supine position on the basic platform. This places a steady load on the gluteal muscles for a defined period of time during magnetic resonance measurement. Resistance intensity can be precisely controlled and changed during the measurement. This allows the muscle to be examined during a standardised load in conjunction with advanced MR-technologies. During the MR measurement, the coil is firmly held in position on the patient pedal platform. This yields reproducible measurements of the same muscle segment over extended periods of time during longitudinal assessments of muscle function. Evaluation of muscle metabolism via magnetic resonance technology together with an assessment of the physiological work performed with the Ergospect module allows high-end applications to be carried out. The parameters assessed include force, frequency, work output and distance. The adjustment of the load is fully automated via a computer-assisted “feed-back-mechanism”. The Glutspect pedal can be used with a maximum standard torque of 110 Nm or with an optional upgrade of up to 250 Nm for sports-related medical examinations. The Glutspect module is available in a pull a push version.
The Glutspect module was designed as a user-friendly device for routine clinical examinations. The approximate setup time in the MRT is less than 5 minutes. The sophisticated design of the diagnostic pedal is the result of consistently applied anthropometry. The pedal platform allows the test subject to be positioned comfortably and securely. The ergonomically designed pedal allows the examined leg to undergo physiological plantar flexion while the other leg does not interfere with the measuring field in order to avoid artefacts. Although our primary focus was to optimise pedal function, we created a device with an aesthetically pleasing appearance at the same time.
