Support for movement retraining: time under attention changes movement patterns at the shoulder and lumbo-pelvic complex
The Performance Matrix (TPM) is a multi-joint, multi-intensity battery of cognitive movement control tests. In addition to being comprehensively described within the literature (Dingenen et al., 2018; Mischiati et al., 2015; Mottram & Comerford, 2008), the clinicians using the system on a daily basis state that TPM ‘makes sure I don’t miss something’ when assessing their individuals’ movement abilities.
Measures of Movement Health: Taking movement into account
The Performance Matrix is a movement assessment tool that supplies coaches, clinicians and their clients with the required information on what movement options have been lost. Therefore, those characteristics of movement that represent compromised Movement Health can found, labelled, and targeted by through specific retraining; the options lost can be restored.
