Leonardo Mechanography
Leonardo mechanography enables objective automatic motion analysis, performance analysis and fitness test. It allows early diagnosis of movement disorders, objective and reproducible assessment of muscular performance and flexibility as well as the documentation of changes.

The main objective of Leonardo Mechanography is to provide efficient quantification of functional human motion based on physical parameters. Leonardo Mechanography analyses functional everyday movement patterns because results are highly reproducible across a large age group from children to the elderly. Leonardo Mechanography offers essential advantages for clinical use, allowing the simple quantification of peak force, peak power and left-right differences of movement patterns. It requires no additional complex measurement devices, no time consuming subject preparation and is easy to use and results are produced within minutes.

Advantages 
This concept offers essential advantages for clinical use: for one it allows the objective quantification of actual maximum forces, maximum power and left-right differences during physiological movements. But the method also very easy and very fast to apply in clinical use since no preparation of the subject or complex additional instruments are needed.

Leonardo Mechanography has been used in numerous international research projects. It has been used to characterize different patient cohorts as well as to document and to quantify effects of different interventions. It is for example one of the standard measurement techniques used for bed-rest studies of the European Space Agency (ESA).

Typical fields of application of Leonardo Mechanography:
Geriatrics: Fallrisk, Sarkopenia, Dynapenia, Frailty
Pediatrics: Performance diagnostics, documentation of therapy results
Diagnostics of muscle function
Performance diagnostics
Pyhsiotherapy: Documentation of therapy effects
Athlete Sports: Performance diagnostics

Measurement Method
Objektive measurement parameters
Human movement can be quantified objectively based on the physical parameters. Essential for quantification of the power output of the human body are: force, velocity and time. Leonardo Mechanography measures dynamic ground reaction forces and calculates the centre of mass related physical parameters including acceleration, velocity, energy, power, jumping height and stiffness or flexibility.

Measurement method
The variation of the ground reaction force (GRF) over time and space are measured. When two separated platforms for the left and the right leg are used side-differences (asymmetries) during symmetric physiological movements like jumping or chair-rising can be analysed. The acquired spatial resolution of the measured forces allows stabilometric analysis, for example, during various types of balance tests.

Reference Data

Galileo Med L Sensor

Therapy model with additional functionality

As well as being suitable for guided therapy, the possibility of preset therapy programs make this device variation suitable for use with intependent patient therapy. As special added value for the treatment of neuronal disorders, this model also offers the Wobbel function to challenge the neuronal system through random frequency changes.Effective therapy of balance and coordination

Therapy with randomly changing frequencies.

With the Wobbel option includes a special remote control is included. The Wobbel function generates randomly changing frequencies during the training. The speed and degree of frequency change can be set at any time to intensity easy, medium or hard. Since the user can not estimate the coming frequency changes the Wobbel function is especially useful for effective therapy of balance and coordination where the body is in constant need to adapt to the changing frequencies. The Wobbel remote control can be used instead or in addition to the standard remote control included with the Galileo Med S-series.

Intuitive handling due to 5 button remote control
Existing devices can be upgraded

Automatic frequency adaptation

Current Galileo Therapy devices use an integrated sensor-system which is able to detect way to intense situations and can indicate such an situation (depending on the used device this is realized in differnet ways). Galileo Smart Coaching however brings this system to the next level an can automatically change the stimulation frequency in situation where the user is above certain limits.

More efficient and safer therapy.
During the application the Galileo Smart Coaching-Function continously checks if the user is overextended. This can be seen e.g. in a unstable stand (user is not able to hold the foot position, feet are slipping away), in a significant increase of the volume up to the moving of the device (only in extreme cases). In all of the above-mentioned cases, the Patient is because of his current physical condition not able to follow the downward movement of he platform correctly. Accordingly there will be a short discharge (up to a brief lift of the foot) and therefore the described phenomena occur.
If Galileo Smart Coaching detects such an excessive demand the frequency will be reduced automaticly and the Patient will be asked to place the feet closer or slightly bend the knees. Not until the user has corrected the foot position or rather the posture the device will be set automatically onto the previously set frequency.
The Galileo Smart Coaching-Function provides five sensitivity adjustments: The level SCI is the most sensitive, level SC5 the most insensitive.
The sensitivity of the Galileo Smart Coaching Function (SCI to SC5) will be adjusted by the operator on the Galileo device. The end user can not switch off the function nor change the sensitivity.

Galileo® Mano Med 30 Dumbbell

Therapy for arms and upper part of the body

The Galileo Mano Med dumbbell systems are particularly used to reduce spasticity or used to alleviate movement restrictions and circulatory disorders and improve motor function or invigorate the muscles.

The effective addition to the standing device.

The Galileo Mano Med 30 dumbbell system enables relaxing and demanding therapy sessions as the situation requires. Muscular deficiencies of the upper extremities and the area of the shoulder and neck are quickly and effectively treated so that the freedom of movement for example after an injury to the shoulder is restored after a very short time. The switching on of the integrated Wobbel function enables a random changing stimulation frequency (vibrations per second).
As an option, a second dumbbell can also be used.

Stratec pQCT muscle and bone density & geometry

pQCT - the third dimension in bone densitometry.
With conventional area-projected bone densitometry techniques (DXA) bone strength cannot be determined adequately because they are lacking information about bone geometry.

With the pQCT technology bone strength with respect to bending, torsion, and compression can be calculated from bone's cross sectional geometry. In addition the results are given as physically correct density units in g/cm³, whereas area projected techniques give only g/cm². Therefore the density values from the pQCT are independent from bone size. This is especially important for measurements on children. With the pQCT technology cortical and trabecular bone can be analysed separately and bone changes can be diagnosed reliably.

Additional morphometric parameter like endosteal and periosteal perimeter and bone cross sectional area are accessible in vivo. pQCT measurements at tibia or radius are performed in a wide range in clinical routine. In paediatrics the advantages of pQCT are especially distinct. It is the only method that allows to differentiate bone growth from other processes. In preclinical research specialised ultra high resolution scanner rare used in many pharmacological studies.

Relation between muscular demands and the resulting bone
But pQCT is even one step further than traditional methods: In addition to bone parameters it also quantifies muscle properties. This allows to quantify the relation between muscle and bone which is essential for the step from Osteoporosis diagnostics to diagnostics of Sarcopenia, Dynapenia and Frailty.

Essential for bone geometry and bone mass is the muscular demand on the bone. Julius Wolf postulated “bone geometry follows function” and Harold Frost specified the more detailed “Mechanostat” theorem. Therefore bone diagnostics must always be accompanied by a sufficient analysis of muscular properties and abilities. pQCT measurements (e.g. at 66% distal tibia) utilize this concept: it allows to quantify the relation between muscular demands and the resulting bone geometry and bone mass on the individual and site-specific level.

This combined analysis is essential to differentiate for example between a primary Osteoporosis and the effects of diuse or lack of mobility. According to Frosts Mechanostat both will result in loss of muscle mass. The difference can therefore not be found in the bone but in its combination with muscle properties and function. Therefore it is essential to quantify the site-specific relation between muscle and bone. In this context the cross-sectional area of the muscle can be used as a surrogate for peak muscular forces, one of the key osteo-anabol parameters. The examples on the right show on the top a healthy muscle-bone relation, in the middle a primary osteoporosis and on the bottom the long-term effects of a spinal cord injury (SCI).

In addition, newest research results show that especially for Sarcopenia, Dynapenia and Frailty the parameter of muscle density (specific property of muscle tissue) in addition to the muscle geometry is essential. The reason for this is currently considered to be mainly the inter- and intra-muscular fatty infiltration. pQCT allowing the combination of geometry and density measurement at an extremely low cost of radiation is therefore the diagnostic method of choice. To add even more details the pQCT based quantification of muscle and bone can be extended by the quantification of muscle function and performance based on the Leonardo Mechanography systems.
