Casus: ACL right knee
Tony, a 45-year-old man, competes in triathlons in his spare time. A week ago, after an intense training session, he was diagnosed with a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee. Since that diagnosis, he has only one goal: to exercise his passion pain-free again.
Tony soon made progress and at this point can walk independently for relatively short distances. However, explosive movements and prolonged effort are still very painful. Tony still seems to have insufficient stability, which means that he can sometimes sink through his knee.
Strengthen the stabilizing muscles.
Improve general strength and endurance.
Regain stability and control of the knee.
Regaining confidence in movement.
Regaining original functionality.
Integration Matti within therapy
How can Matti support Tony?
By using the integrated Heatmap and Center of Mass tools, the plantar contact and balance of Tony can be visualized for both the therapist and Tony himself. In this way, the therapist can provide real-time and very concrete feedback on the specific work points throughout the exercises.
