In short Study director Maxim Krillov conducted a stabilization test involving two ManuTrain product generations at the FH Münster’s Biomechatronics Laboratory. Are there any differences between the inner hand stay and the adjustable strap system of the new ManuTrain when it comes to stabilizing the wrist? According to the assessment, no.
- The new ManuTrain with adjustable strap system provides equal functional stabilization by limiting the range of motion.
- We measured the resistance of ManuTrain supports against flexion and extension movements of the wrist. The maximum values were similar, but with greater variation for the strap system which moves along more flexibly.
- Dr.-Ing. David Hochmann, Director of FH Münster’s Biomechatronics Laboratory, explains: “The demand for substantiating products and their functions using measurement technology is constantly increasing.” The Biomechatronics Laboratory has agile systems that help design appropriate test procedures. It assists with many study projects in the industry as well as practice projects involving cooperation with medical supply retailers.
