As you well know, palpating muscles reveals significant details about the wellbeing of the underlying tissue. The Pact Sense quickly provides an objective measure of the mechanical state of that tissue—which means that you can track your client’s injuries and recovery progress using hard data.
Showing your clients their measurable progress keeps them motivated to keep coming back, and gives you the tools to make precise recommendations. The Pact Sense allows you to
Using the mobile app to analyze the scan results, you’ll be able to offer more targeted and accurate guidance to your clients
We are welcoming professionals like you to give Pact a try and let us know what we can do to improve the software to make it the most useful for your practice and your clients
This white paper details how the Pact Sense muscle scanner functions, the technical aspects of what the device is measuring, and the underlying technology that powers the device. Additionally, several research studies verifying the device performance are covered, illustrating applications of the Pact Sense
This white paper details how Impact Biosystems uses System Identification techniques to measure the mechanical properties of the muscle. With these techniques, Impact can quantify palpation of the muscles and providing meaningful insights to physical therapists and trainers
There are four parameters that the Pact system uses to characterize the mechanical state of muscle - stiffness, damping, stiffness slope, and damping slope. With these four parameters, Pact can quantify the state of any superficial muscle and the soft tissues around it.
Knots, or myofascial trigger points, can be detected using the Pact Sense. Read our white paper to learn more
It has been incredible to watch the scanner track recovery from a hamstring injury and see the changes not only in the injured muscle, but sense imbalances on the healthy side too.
This device offers objective data about muscle readiness. I love the Pact because it helps to direct your focus on specific areas of the body. It provides movement strategies that address the muscular and connective tissue systems, such as fascia and tendons. Having the ability to now measure this aspect of your health and performance through Pact, and then take the appropriate action with specific exercises, is a game changer.
I’m interested in tools that make me more efficient with my assessments, so I can get to caring for my patients faster. In healthcare we are getting less and less time with our patients and I want that time to be as efficient and effective as possible.
I had a client with R. Trap dysfunction. The asymmetry graph was very helpful for her. Next time I saw that client, she told me how mindful she had been since seeing her trap in the red for asymmetry. That visual helped her be able to modulate tightness on her own.
This device has helped me tremendously as an LMT by providing numerical data to base by massage treatment off of. The app has a simple user interface. The green, yellow, and red symmetry indicators make it easy to determine which area needs the most focus. Recent updates have added before/after treatment tags and notes, which makes analyzing changes in stiffness much easier. The graphs are also super simple and easy to understand. Customer support has been a breeze and the manufacturer has been quick to respond regarding bug fixes. Most of all I look forward to continuing to integrate the PACT muscle scanner into my practice!
A lot of what we do makes you feel good. But I want it to be objectively better. Pact is that objective measurement.
