MyoVision 3G Wirefree System

Introduction
The MyoVision 3G WireFree System is made up of handheld devices that gather data and software on a computer that displays the data. The devices use the physiological and anatomical measurement technologies of Surface Electromyography, Range of Motion and Thermography. Surface Electromyography is used in two subsystems; Static sEMG and Dynamic sEMG. Surface Electromyography (sEMG): This is the measurement of muscle activity. It functions in the same manner as an EKG, measuring a summation of all the electrical depolarizations in the region where the electrodes are either attached to the skin, Dynamic sEMG, or momentarily touched to the skin, Static sEMG. The DynaVision device is used in Dynamic sEMG. During Dynamic sEMG, muscle activity readings are measured as the patient moves. The ScanVision devices are used in Static sEMG. With Static sEMG, a set of probes are touched to the skin momentarily on left and right sides of the spine simultaneously, above the paraspinal muscles. Range of Motion: This component uses two sensors to measure angle of bending of the bodys various joints. The FlexVision devices are used in Range of Motion. By using two devices which measure angle simultaneously, the motion of the region of interest is measured more accurately since the difference between the two angle-measuring devices automatically subtracts out the motion of both, to only show the actual movement of the region measured. Thermography: The ThermoVision device is used in Thermography. The device measures skin temperature via small infrared temperature sensors on left and right sides of the spine simultaneously. The device is rolled up the spine gathering skin temperature data looking for symmetries in skin temperature when comparing left and right sides of the spine.

3G ScanVision Static sEMG & ThermoVision Procedures
This section will cover basic procedural tips for ensuring accurate and reproducible data. For a research paper on the topic, and up-to-date information visit: www.MyoVision.com under Support and/or Training. Also refer to the Surface EMG FAQs under Support at www.MyoVision.com.

Static Surface EMG Procedures: Preparation

1. Confirm that your electrodes have not worn out by visually inspecting them. If your electrodes have worn out (they change from a dark dull matte finish to lighter, shiny or light brown, or with white spots you need to replace them). Worn electrodes prevent proper skin contact. Worn electrodes will cause trouble achieving stable readings. 2. To be safe, replace Static Electrodes at minimum every 6 months or after approximately 200 tests. Electrodes that are light gray, blotchy or have turned shiny should be replaced immediately. 3. Make certain to turn any Cell phones in the room you are testing to the OFF position. The electrical interference created by the cell phone will cause high readings. The Cell phone needs to be powered off, and not just in silent mode. Always remove shoes, as shoe height varies from visit to visit and can dramatically affect readings. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 30 of 60

4. Make sure that you are not testing beneath an air conditioning duct, as air blown on the patient will create static electricity and high readings. 5. Wipe the skin with alcohol along the paraspinals starting from the cervical left side, rubbing down the spine, and then the right side and down the spine. There is no need to rub hard. A simple single wipe down the skin once or twice at the most is usually sufficient. Dab the skin dry with a dry paper towel before testing to make certain that the skin is dry prior to testing. 6. Remove a QuickScan Pad from the QuickScan Pad Jar, replacing the lid. Place the pad on TOP of the QuickScan pad jars lid. It is crucial to place it on top of the jars lid, and NEVER place the probe inside the jar. This will get the liquid on the probe, potentially damaging it. 7. Never rub QuickScan liquid on the patients skin with the pad. Always instead, touch the electrodes to the pad momentarily prior to placing them on the skin. PERFORMING A 3G W IREFREE SCANVISION FS STATIC SEMG EXAM (FULL SPINE STATIC SEMG) The software provides the user with prompts using both voice and on-screen markings which inform the user where to place the probes on the patients skin. The ScanVision probes are marked left and right by having a yellow sticker on the rear (opposite end from the electrodes) of the left ScanVision probe, with the right probe being the probe without a sticker. Testing is performed by placing the ground (center electrode with the spring action) at the location the software prompts the user. The device is placed on the skin with the left probe approximately an inch and a half from the center of the spine, with the electrodes above the paraspinal muscles (the muscles found bilaterally to the left and right sides of the spine). The center ground has a spring action so that it adapts to the bodys curves, and allows for proper skin contact. Performing the test: Requires a jar of QuickScan pads, and two ScanVision probes (left probe marked with yellow marker). 1. 2. 3. 4. Place one pad on top of QuickScan pad jar DO NOT PUT PROBE IN JAR! Remove patients shoes and shirt. Cell phones should be turned Off. Clean skin with alcohol by wiping down left and then right paraspinals from the neck to the base of the low back. 5. Dab skin dry with paper towel. 6. Have patient stand in neutral posture, hands to side. Do not let them hold their hands together 7. Mentally determine placement of probes by breaking spine into cervical, thoracic and lumbar region, dividing by number of readings to take. This is

23-000-LBL01 Rev E

Page 31 of 60

done to avoid having to mark levels. There is no need to mark levels since a general measure of the region is all that is required. 8. After entering patient last, first ID and Gender, Select the 3G FS Static sEMG protocol in the software. When the screen appears showing RED Link Quality bars with a RED X, press and release the START buttons on both left and right ScanVisions.

9. Once the Link Quality bars turn GREEN, press and hold ONE START button for 2 seconds, and release to enter the Perform Scan Screen

10. Touch one probe at a time to the QuickScan pad and make sure all three electrodes make contact with pad. 11. Touch probe to skin NEVER on hair (move under ear if needed), and down below C2 even if C2 appears on screen). The Site presented is (i.e. C2) is where the center spring-loaded ground is placed on with probes placed bilaterally about the spine at this level.

12. Watch screen. If readings drop quickly, you have good contact with skin: Press and release LEFT OR RIGHT button (NOT BOTH), listening for CLICK of button. DO NOT HOLD DOWN THE BUTTON, but just press and release. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 32 of 60

13. Once you have pressed and released the single button DO NOT REMOVE THE PROBES from the skin. The button press and release initiates the AutoScanning process whereby the computer automatically stores the data from the top level, then the bottom level (shown as top bar and bottom bar on screen) one at a time when the readings are determined by the computer to be stable. 14. IF the readings do NOT drop right away, pick up and move probe over slightly, touch down again, allowing reading to store. 15. When readings have stored, the computer will prompt you by moving the bars to the next level and by providing a voice prompt for this level. 16. Remove probe from skin, and follow the procedure from step #10-15 until all sites have stored. 17. When done testing, DAB electrodes on end of probes with alcohol to clean them for next patient. NOTES: 1. In cases where readings are very high, and will not stabilize (meaning autoscan will not store data automatically, you may press the button a 2nd time to store the data. 2. In the rare event that the patient sways upon touching the skin, wait for them to return to neutral prior to pressing and releasing the single button. In general, autoscan will not store data until the sway stops anyhow, and was designed to take sway into account. 3. To REDO a site, move the mouse cursor over the center of the spine at the level you have chosen to redo, and click on it. It will allow you to redo that site. If you have done multiple sites prior to redo, you may have to click on the next site to test to continue testing. PERFORMING A 3G W IREFREE SCANVISION QUICKSCREEN STATIC SEMG EXAM (3G QUICKSCREEN STATIC CERVICAL AND LUMBAR EXAM) This test is the same basic test as in 3.2.7.3 but is a quick version of it for screenings only, so is not as detailed. It was designed for the Cervical and Lumbar exam only skipping sites in the middle of the back. The software provides the user with prompts using both voice and on-screen markings which inform the user where to place the probes on the patients skin. The ScanVision probes are marked left and right by having a yellow sticker on the rear (opposite end from the electrodes) of the left ScanVision probe, with the right probe being the probe without a sticker. Testing is performed by placing the ground (center electrode with the spring action) at the location the software prompts the user. The device is placed on the skin with the left probe approximately an inch and a half from the center of the spine, with the electrodes above the paraspinal muscles (the muscles found bilaterally to the left and right sides of the spine). The center ground has a spring action so that it adapts to the bodys curves, and allows for proper skin contact. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 33 of 60

Performing the test: Requires a jar of QuickScan pads, and two ScanVision probes (left probe marked with yellow marker). 1. Place one pad on top of QuickScan pad jar DO NOT PUT PROBE IN JAR!! 2. Cell phones should be turned Off. 3. Clean skin with alcohol by wiping down left and then right paraspinals from the neck to the base of the low back. 4. Dab skin dry with paper towel. 5. Have patient stand in neutral posture, hands to side. Do not let them hold their hands together 6. Mentally determine placement of probes by breaking spine into cervical, thoracic and lumbar region, dividing by number of readings to take. This is done to avoid having to mark levels. There is no need to mark levels since a general measure of the region is all that is reqiured. 7. Select the 3G QuickScreen Static protocol in the software. When the screen appears showing RED Link Quality bars with a RED X, press and release the START buttons on both left and right ScanVisions. 8. Once the Link Quality bars turn GREEN, press and hold ONE START button for 2 seconds, and release to enter the Perform Scan Screen. 9. Touch one probe at a time to the QuickScan pad and make sure all three electrodes make contact with pad. 10. Touch probe to skin NEVER on hair (move under ear if needed), and down below C2 even if C2 appears on screen). The Site presented is (i.e. C3) is where the center spring-loaded ground is placed on with probes placed bilaterally about the spine at this level. 11. Watch screen. If readings drop quickly, you have good contact with skin: Press and release LEFT OR RIGHT button (NOT BOTH), listening for CLICK of button. DO NOT HOLD DOWN THE BUTTON, but just press and release. 12. Once you have pressed and released the single button DO NOT REMOVE THE PROBES from the skin. The button press and release initiates the AutoScanning process whereby the computer automatically stores the data from the top level, then the bottom level (shown as top bar and bottom bar on screen) one at a time when the readings are determined by the computer to be stable. 13. IF the readings do NOT drop right away, pick up and move probe over slightly, touch down again, allowing reading to store. 14. When readings have stored, the computer will prompt you by moving the bars to the next level and by providing a voice prompt for this level. 15. Remove probe from skin, and follow the procedure using the QuickScan liquid for the rest of the measures. 16. When done testing, DAB electrodes on end of probes with alcohol to clean them for next patient. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 34 of 60

17. Press F6 to review the results on the screen, or F7 to print them. Press F5 to begin another QuickScreen procedure. NOTES: 1. In cases where readings are very high, and will not stabilize (meaning autoscan will not store data automatically, you may press the button a 2nd time to store the data. 2. In the rare event that the patient sways upon touching the skin, wait for them to return to neutral prior to pressing and releasing the single button. In general, autoscan will not store data until the sway stops anyhow, and was designed to take sway into account. To REDO a site, move the mouse cursor over the center of the spine at the level you have chosen to redo, and click on it. It will allow you to redo that site. If you have done multiple sites prior to redo, you may have to click on the next site to test to continue testing. NOTE: NEVER REMOVE THE PROBE FROM THE SKIN UNTIL PROMPTED BY THE SOFTWARE. MAINTAIN EVEN PRESSURE (lightnot enough to move the patient, but enough to make good contact). NOTE: If you press the button after the readings drop and you do not hear a click sound indicating that Autoscan has been initiated it means that the button press was not registered. Press the button a second time to initiate the Autoscanning function. NOTE: If you do not get readings to drop immediately this may be caused by poor contact with the skin. Simply lift up and place the probe down slightly away from the spine (may take a couple of touch downs) to locate an area of better contact. NOTE: Never touch the probe down to an area where there is hair. You may move the probe under the ear if necessary as the device is measuring a region approximately two inches in diameter, and you will still get relevant readings. NOTE: If testing on individuals with considerable hair on their backs, and if the QuickScan pad liquid technique does not allow for readings to stabilize, you can either shave the region or use Signa Cream (a bottle comes with each package). Simply open the cap, and place a small dab of Signa cream on each electrode. Touch down to the skin and gather readings as you would with QuickScan Liquid, although you may only have to place the cream on the electrodes at every 2nd or third measurement. SPECIAL NOTE: When testing patients with extremely high muscle activity, the Autoscanning function may not store the data as it is too variable with these patients. If you are comfortable that the reading is truly high legitimately, press the button a second time to override the Autoscan feature and store the data. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 35 of 60

To Redo a Static Site In Testing Mode While testing, if you would like to redo a site (if for example readings do not appear accurate or you would like to verify that they are), simply click on the spine at the site you would like to retest. When complete, click the site you would like to continue with if the software does not automatically continue to the next site. 1. Continue down the spine until all levels have been stored. NOTE: All data will be stored automatically once you have completed the test. 2. If the NEXT button is shown in the upper right live, click it to continue to the next test you have selected in the protocol. If the NEXT button is grayed out, click on the REVIEW button to view the results. Post Static Test Procedure: Cleaning Electrodes Once you have finished with testing the patient, clean electrodes by dabbing them with alcohol after each patient is tested. Do not rub electrodes with the alcohol pad as it will wear out the electrodes prematurely. IMPORTANT! Once monthly or if you see a buildup of bluish liquid on plastic piece or metal female connector where static electrodes are attached to the probe, remove electrodes, and clean the plastic piece and metal electrode connector with an alcohol wipe. This is done to reduce buildup of the QuickScan liquid from the probe itself.

General Surface EMG Tips for Dynamic Surface EMG and Range of Motion
This section will cover basic procedural tips for ensuring accurate and reproducible data. For a research paper on the topic, and up-to-date information visit: www.MyoVision.com under Support and/or Training. Also refer to the Surface EMG FAQs under Support at www.MyoVision.com. This assumes that you are using the combined DynaVision with FlexVision Range of Motion Device. For videos covering most aspects of proper testing technique, click on the Video button in the software. Further more in-depth videos on interpretation are available on-line at www.MyoVision.com.

Dynamic Surface EMG Procedures: Properly preparing the patient


1. Only use electrodes from a fresh, sealed pouch with a date code which is current. 2. Confirm that your electrodes have proper gel on them by examining the plastic backing of the strip of electrodes. You can apply slight pressure to the center of the electrode or visually observe that the electrodes are not dry. If the electrodes are dry, you will not be able to Dry, unusable electrode Gelled good gather accurate data. Replace the electrodes with fresh electrode electrodes if dry. 3. Make certain to turn any Cell phones in the room you are testing to the OFF position. The electrical interference created by the cell phone will cause high readings. The Cell phone needs to be powered off, and not just in silent mode. 4. Always remove shoes, as shoe height varies from visit to visit and can dramatically affect readings.

23-000-LBL01 Rev E

5. Make sure that you are not testing beneath an air conditioning duct, as air blown on the patient will create static electricity and high readings. 6. Wipe the skin with alcohol along the paraspinals starting from the cervical left side, rubbing down the spine, and then the right side and down the spine, skipping any area which will not be tested (for cervical and lumbar test, you may skip cleaning the thoracic region. There is no need to rub hard. A simple single wipe down the skin once or twice at the most is usually sufficient. 7. Also wipe the skin where the ground will be placed (the bony prominence of the left or right scapula) 8. Dab the skin dry with a dry paper towel before testing to make certain that the skin is dry prior to testing. 9. For the best results, if you are getting high, flat readings, allow the electrodes to stay on the skin for approximately 6-10 minutes prior to testing. This is normally required only in the cervical spine.

PERFORMING A 3G DYNAROM LUMBAR EXAM UTILILZING THE DYNAVISION DYNAMIC SEMG AND FLEXVISION RANGE OF MOTION DEVICES NOTE: See Video training for a video demonstrating the instructions described below. 1. Make certain you have a set of white lead wires plugged into the DynaVision in Channel 1, a set of red lead wires plugged into the DynaVision in channel 2, and a black ground lead wire plugged into the DynaVision (note: Photo shows extra white and red leads (ch3 &4). where the indicator is for the GND (ground). 2. Attach the belt around the patients waist and place the DynaVisions Belt clip on the belt so the DynaVision sits to the left or right of the center of the spine leaving room for the FlexVision Range of motion devices to be placed along the center of the spine. 3. Remove dynamic electrodes (in the white single use pouch) from the pouch. Using the alligator clips at the end of the lead wires, connect all lead wires to the metal snap connector on the electrodes while still on the plastic backing. Make certain that Channel 1 (white lead wires) are connected to the first two electrodes, Channel 2 (red lead wires) are connected to the 3rd and 4th electrode, and the GND (black) lead wire is connected to the 5th electrode. 4. With the patient bent forward as far as possible without causing pain, attach electrodes for Channel 1 and to L1 and L5 on the left (white lead wires) approximately 1 inch from the spine (above the paraspinal muscles) and Channel 2 to L1 and L5 on the right (red lead wires) symmetrically in comparison to Channel 1. Attach the ground lead wire to the bony prominence to the left of the left scapula (shoulder blade). It is not critical to be exact. 5. Next Select 3G DynaROM Lumbar sEMG Exam. Click OK or double click on the protocol name. 6. When you see the 3G Device Settings Dialog Box you are viewing the 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 39 of 60

status of the devices. This prompts you to turn on the devices by pressing and releasing a red button on each of the FlexVision Probes (in this case) and the white button on the DynaVision device.

7. Once you have pressed the buttons for each, the status indicators will turn GREEN and show the actual status of the batteries (in terms of percentage of charge), and quality of the wirefree link (strength of the signal).

8. After turning on each device, click and hold the red button on ONE FlexVision for approximately 2 seconds and release to continue to the test. You can alternatively click on the CONTINUE button to continue on to the testing screen. 9. You will now continue to the Calibration screen for the FlexVision. This ensures that the devices receive the same zero value in relationship to the earth. They must be both placed with all four feet on a flat surface, with both devices facing as shown on the screen in the software (vertically, and in the same plane with each other). 10. Press and release the button on the MAIN device (the unit marked with a yellow round sticker). The software will inform you when calibration is complete. Technically, it does not matter which device you calibrate first, but for ease of use, following the same procedure will save time. Once the main device has been

23-000-LBL01 Rev E

Page 40 of 60

calibrated, press and release one red button on the AUXILIARY FlexVision and hold it still for it to gather calibration information. When calibration has been completed, the CALIBRATED message will appear below both devices. 11. Press for 2 seconds, and release ONE red button to continue on to perform the exam.

12. When you arrive at the Data Collection Screen you will see a graph. The top half of the graph provides you with the Dynamic Surface EMG data. The bottom half of the graph (in black and green) shows the Range of Motion data in degrees. The degrees of motion (difference between MAIN and AUXILIARY FlexVision devices is presented as a digital value in the upper right of the bottom graph. The values in microvolts of each channel of the Dynamic sEMG is presented in the upper left and right corners of the screen, with blue values indicating channels 1 and 3, red channels 2 and 4. 13. To begin a test, press and hold one RED button on the Range of Motion device per the videos in the software training (by clicking the TRAINING button in the software) and follow the instructions in these videos to complete the exam, or continue on to 10 below for instructions for completing the exam. 14. NOTE. When completed with each screen, press one RED FlexVision button on either FlexVision for 2 seconds, and RELEASE this button to move to the next screen. You can see what motion is required in the upper right of the screen, where the procedure name determines the motion required. 15. Holding the FlexVisions between 1st and 2nd fingers in both hands, with your thumb able to press the red button, (label facing you) stand to the side of the patient, and place one FlexVision device with the two feet against the patients Sacrum (low back) when standing. Place the second FlexVision device in the same manner at approximately Thoracic 11 (T11 at the bottom of the mid back). 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 41 of 60

16. Press and release the red button on ONE FlexVision to begin the test. You will be having the patient perform three (3) flexions in 30 seconds so plan on 10 seconds per flexion and time the motions appropriately. 17. Tell the patient to drop and hang naturally, with head and hands dropped towards the ground. 18. Once you see the yellow graph at the bottom at its peak, count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE red button to mark full flexion. 19. Have the patient stand back up, and when the graphed line in yellow at the bottom of the screen is at a minimum value, count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE either red button to mark the NEUTRAL position. 20. repeat steps 17 and 18 until 3 complete cycles have completed. 21. If you do not complete the 3 cycles in 30 seconds or must redo an exam, click the CLEAR button and begin again. See videos for detail. 22. To move on to the next screen, PRESS AND HOLD the red button on one FlexVision for approximately 2 seconds, or until you see the next screen appear, and RELEASE the red button at this point. 23. EXTENSION: Now Follow the same procedure from 14-21 but this time, perform 3 extensions (backward bending). 24. LEFT/RIGHT LATERAL FLEXION: NOTE: See video training for demonstration. Now with the patient back in the standing neutral posture, and you are now standing directly behind the patient place the two FlexVisions so that one is at approximately at Thoracic 11 (T11 at the bottom of the mid-back) holding the hockey puck cylinder in your hand, and the back of it is flat against the back, with feet straight down). With your fingers holding the second FlexVision in the same manner as the previous exam, place it so the round head is facing down at the Sacrum, label facing you with the feet facing straight up towards the feet of the other FlexVision. 25. Now, press and release ONE red button to begin the test. You will be completing three lateral flexions within 20 seconds, so time them appropriately. You can always click the CLEAR button to restart the test. 26. Have the patient drop their fingertip to their knee bending to the left only without rotating (pure lateral flexion). When the yellow graph is at its peak and the patient is bent as far as possible to the left, count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE one red button to mark the end range of motion. 27. Return to the center (standing) position and when the yellow graphed readings are at a minimum, count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE one red 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 42 of 60

button to mark the center position. Repeat 25 and 26 until all three left lateral flexions are graphed. 28. Press and hold the RED button on the FlexVision for approximately 2 seconds, or the NEXT screen appears. 29. LEFT/RIGHT ROTATION: NOTE: See video under TRAINING button for more detailed demonstration. Due to the technical limitations which prevent the FlexVision device from measuring angle of rotation measure angle of rotation. Therefore, rotation is performed with the DynaVision only and in the seated posture. 30. Have the patient sit in a chair without leaning against the back of the chair. Knees should be approximately at a right angle to the floor. Hold one or both of the FlexVisions in your hand so you can use one of the RED buttons to initiate the exam. 31. Have the patient place their arms with elbows in front of them, arms crossed (the genie position) facing forward. 32. Press ONE red button to begin the exam, asking the patient to rotate as far left as possible, but not beyond any point of pain. When at full left rotation, look at the screen, and when you see a peak reading on the Dynamic graph, PRESS and RELEASE red button to mark the peak. 33. Ask the patient to return to the center. When you see the readings drop on the screen count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE one red button to mark the valley in neutral. 34. Repeat until there are three left rotations. 35. Repeat 31-33 for right rotation. 36. At the last screen press REVIEW to store the data and review. 37. To print the results, click the PRINT button in the upper left of the screen, and select your options, click OK, select your printer and print.

1. Make certain you have a set of white lead wires plugged into the DynaVision in Channel 1, a set of red lead wires plugged into the DynaVision in channel 2, and a black ground lead wire plugged into the DynaVision where the indicator is for the GND (ground). In addition, plug in a set of white lead wires into channel 3, and a set of red lead wires into channel 4. 2. Attach the belt around the patients chest so that it runs underneath the arms,+ and place the DynaVisions Belt clip on the belt so the DynaVision sits to the left or right of the center of the spine leaving room for the FlexVision Range of motion devices to be placed along the center of the spine. 3. Remove dynamic electrodes (in the white single use pouch) from the pouch. Using the alligator clips at the end of the lead wires, connect all lead wires to the metal snap connector on the electrodes while still on the plastic backing. Make certain that Channel 1 (white lead wires) are connected to the first two electrodes, Channel 2 (red lead wires) are connected to the 3rd and 4th electrode, and the GND (black) lead wire is connected to the 5th electrode. Attach the ground lead wire to the bony prominence to the left of the left scapula (shoulder blade). It is not critical to be exact. Remove another set of 5 electrodes on plastic backing from an unopened white pouch. Connect the white lead wires from channel 3 to the metal snap connectors on two electrodes, and the red lead wires from channel 4 to the metal snap connectors on two additional electrodes, leaving one electrode without a connection. 4. With the patient bent forward as far as possible without causing pain, attach electrodes for Channel 1 and to C4 and T1 on the left (white lead wires) approximately 1 inch from the spine (above the paraspinal muscles) and Channel 2 to C4 and T1 on the right (red lead wires) symmetrically in comparison to Channel 1. Connect the electrodes from channel 3 to the SCMs (one in front of the C4 electrode, and the other down by the adams apple, a half and inch from towards the ear on the left side. Connect the electrodes from channel 4 to the SCMs (one in front of the C4 electrode, and the other down by the adams apple, a half and inch from towards the ear on the right side). 5. Next Select 3G DynaROM Cervical sEMG Exam. Click OK or double click on the protocol name. 6. When you see the 3G Device Settings Dialog Box you are viewing the status of the devices.

10. Press and release the button on the MAIN device (the unit marked with a yellow round sticker). The software will inform you when calibration is complete. Technically, it does not matter which device you calibrate first, but for ease of use, following the same procedure will save time. Once the main device has been calibrated, press and release one red button on the AUXILIARY FlexVision and hold it still for it to gather calibration information. When calibration has been completed, the CALIBRATED message will appear below both devices.

11. Press for 2 seconds, and release ONE red button to continue on to perform the exam. 12. When you arrive at the Data Collection Screen you will see a graph. The top half of the graph provides you with the Dynamic Surface EMG data. The bottom half of the graph (in black and green) shows the Range of Motion data in degrees. The degrees of motion (difference between MAIN and AUXILIARY FlexVision devices is presented as a digital value in the upper right of the bottom graph. The values in microvolts of each channel of the Dynamic sEMG is presented in the upper left and right corners of the screen, with blue values indicating channels 1 and 3, red channels 2 and 4.

23-000-LBL01 Rev E

Page 46 of 60

13. To begin a test, press and hold one RED button on the Range of Motion device per the videos in the software training (by clicking the TRAINING button in the software) and follow the instructions in these videos to complete the exam, or continue on below for instructions for completing the exam. 14. NOTE. When completed with each screen, press and release ONE red button on the FlexVision to move to the next screen. You can see what motion is required in the upper right of the screen, where the procedure name determines the motion required. 15. Holding the FlexVisions between 1st and 2nd fingers in both hands, with your thumb able to press the red button, (label facing you) stand to the side of the patient, and place one FlexVision device with the two feet against the patients Thoracic 1 (the bump at the base of the neck where the neck transitions to the thoracic area) when standing. Place the second FlexVision device in the same manner at approximately the top of the head. You can perform this test with the patient seated if you cannot reach the top of their head. 16. Press and release the red button on ONE FlexVision to begin the test. You will be having the patient perform three (3) flexions in 30 seconds so plan on 10 seconds per flexion and time the motions appropriately. 17. Tell the patient to drop and hang their head naturally, with head and hands dropped towards the ground. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 47 of 60

18. Once you see the yellow graph at the bottom at its peak, count 1-1000, 21000 and PRESS and RELEASE red button to mark full flexion. 19. Have the patient return the head to neutral, and when the graphed line in yellow at the bottom of the screen is at a minimum value, count 1-1000, 21000 and PRESS and RELEASE either red button to mark the NEUTRAL position. 20. Repeat steps 17 and 18 until 3 complete cycles have completed. 21. If you do not complete the 3 cycles in 30 seconds or must redo an exam, click the CLEAR button and begin again. See videos for detail. 22. To move on to the next screen, PRESS AND HOLD the red button on one FlexVision for approximately 2 seconds, and RELEASE the red button at this point to continue to the next screen. You will always move from screen to screen like this. 23. EXTENSION: Now Follow the same procedure as Flexion but this time, perform 3 extensions (backward bending of head). 24. LEFT/RIGHT LATERAL FLEXION: NOTE: See video training for demonstration. Now with the patient back in the standing neutral posture, and you are now standing directly behind the patient place the two FlexVisions so that one is at approximately at Thoracic 1 with label facing you, either with feet facing up or down holding the hockey puck cylinder in your hand, and the back of it is flat against the back). With your fingers holding the second FlexVision in the same manner as the previous exam, place it on the top of the head with label facing you also, held between your first and middle finger so that you can press and release one of the red buttons with your thumb. 25. Now, press and release ONE red button to begin the test. You will be completing three LEFT lateral flexions within 20 seconds, so time them appropriately. You can always click the CLEAR button to restart the test. 26. Have the patient drop their head (ear to the shoulder) left only without rotating (pure lateral flexion). When the yellow graph is at its peak and the patient is bent as far as possible to the left, count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE one red button to mark the end range of motion. 27. Return to the center (head straight up, neutral) position and when the yellow graphed readings are at a minimum, count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE one red button to mark the center position. Repeat 25 and 26 until all three left lateral flexions are graphed. 28. Press and hold the RED button on the FlexVision for approximately 2 seconds and release so that the NEXT screen appears. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 48 of 60

29. LEFT/RIGHT ROTATION: NOTE: See video under TRAINING button for more detailed demonstration. Left/Right Rotation is performed twice. The first set of left / right rotations are performed measuring Surface EMG only without measuring Range of Motion. This is due to the technical limitations which prevent the FlexVision device from measuring angle of rotation. 30. Hold one or both of the FlexVisions in your hand so you can use one of the RED buttons to initiate the exam. 31. Press ONE red button to begin the exam, asking the patient to rotate their head as far left as possible, but not beyond any point of pain. When at full left rotation, look at the screen, and when you see a peak reading on the Dynamic graph, PRESS and RELEASE a red button to mark the peak. 32. Ask the patient to return to the center. When you see the readings drop on the screen count 1-1000, 2-1000 and PRESS and RELEASE one red button to mark the valley in neutral. 33. Repeat 31 and 32 above until there are three left rotations. 34. When three rotations have been stored, and/or you are at the end of the screen, press and hold a RED button on either FlexVision to continue on to the next screen. 35. Repeat 30-32 for right rotation. 36. Now, have the patient lay on their back making certain to move the DynaVision out of the way (you may lay it next to the patient). From behind the patient, place one FlexVision on the forehead, with the label facing you (towards the top of their head). Place the other FlexVision on the table also in the same plane as the one on the forehead. 37. Repeat steps 31through 33 to gather Range of Motion data along with Dynamic sEMG. 38. At the last screen press REVIEW to store the data and review. 39. To print the results, click the PRINT button in the upper left of the screen, and select your options, click OK, select your printer and print.

For Static or Dynamic SEMG

Verify that hardware is setup and functioning properly: Virtually 99% of the problems are simple to diagnose, and even simpler to fix. Before proceeding, be certain to verify that all hardware is setup properly. Surface EMG is sensitive to the effects of electrical interference caused by fans, motors and cell phones. Review each question in the table below to determine proper setup prior to continuing. Hardware Setup Issues 1. Are you using a grounded AC adapter? This is the plug which connects your computer to the surge protector or wall outlet. If you have only a two prong plug, the computer is not grounded properly and can cause electrical interference. NOTE: This is NOT the plug from the surge protector to the wall outlet, but the plug which connects directly to your computer. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 51 of 60

If you do not have a grounded AC adapter, you need to purchase one for your computer. You can purchase a grounded AC adapter from www.IGO.COM. Call them at 888-205-0064 and ask for the 'JUICE' or ICE adapter. They offer a grounded adapter for most computers.

2. Are you plugged into a grounded (three prong) AC outlet? It is recommended that you utilize a surge protector, and plug that directly into a grounded wall outlet (one which has three prongs). Note that many older homes or offices do not have grounded AC outlets. 3. Are you in an older office where you question whether it may or may not have grounded outlets? Have you had other problems with electrical devices? Some older offices may have 3 prong AC wall outlets, but the 3rd prong (ground) may not be connected properly. To test for a functional ground, purchase the Radio Shack part # 22-141. Its available at the website and is approximately $6.00 USD. http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&product%5Fid=2 2-141

Simply plug it into the wall outlet, and it can verify whether the outlet is properly grounded. If it is NOT properly grounded, contact an electrician to resolve the issue. It is a very important safety hazard, and when repaired will prevent damage to other electrical devices in addition to providing greater safety. 4. Are your electrodes in good shape? If electrodes are in poor shape, readings will typically be very high and erratic, as there is less silver to conduct electricity generated by the muscles as they contract. Bad electrodes will also require significantly more QuickScan liquid to compensate for their lack of conductivity.

23-000-LBL01 Rev E

Page 52 of 60

The way you can tell is by the color. If they are a dark black, they are considered in good condition. Electrodes which are light, shiny or have many spots are worn, and need to be replaced. You can order them by contacting MyoVision at 800-969-6961. 5. Is there a bluish liquid on the white plastic where the static electrodes are inserted? Your scanners should look like the image to the right: Clean with no bluish liquid between the electrodes. If so, the bluish liquid may have been built up over time from use, or if you are placing the electrodes inside the jar instead on top of the jar, the QuickScan liquid splashes onto the device, creating higher readings by shorting out the probes. No damage is caused by this, but readings will be higher. Remove the electrodes from the probe by twisting and removing. Clean the plastic thoroughly with an alcohol soaked paper towel. Reinsert the electrodes. Always place the QuickScan pads on the lid of the jar. Never place the instrument inside the jar itself. Troubleshooting Dynamic sEMG
Confirm hardware is set up properly before proceeding.

Tips For Performing Dynamic Lumbar Flexions 1. Make certain to have the patient perform three flexions in a row before taking data. 2. Show them how to perform the flexion, asking them to drop their head to reduce probability that lordosis is not reduced in flexion. 3. Make sure they stay in the flexed position UNTIL you tell them to stand up. This allows you time to mark their flexed position with the spacebar properly. 4. Press the Spacebar to begin the test, THEN tell them to begin the flexion. Do not press the spacebar AFTER telling them to begin the flexion. 5. Always mark flexion studies in "valleys" only both at full flexion, and neutral. 6. After pressing the spacebar, have them bend forward, and do NOT press the spacebar when they are fully flexed, but instead watch the screen for the readings to level off creating the "valley" and then press the spacebar (usually 2 seconds after they have reached full flexion. After pressing spacebar, immediately ask them to return to neutral. 7. At neutral, again do NOT press the spacebar but instead look at the screen to watch for the readings to level off in the "valley" and then press the spacebar (usually 2 seconds after they have reached neutral). 8. Make sure that timing-wise you have them moving fast enough to perform three flexions in the 30 second time window allowed for the three flexions. This makes the timing between all patients consistent. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 53 of 60

What if the test results do not look consistent or I do not finish three flexions in the 30 seconds? 1. If the patient can perform three flexions without pain, you simply are learning how to do the test properly. Press the CLEAR button to the far right, and redo the test. 2. If the patient is in severe pain, and cannot complete three tests then put this in your chart notes, and the data should show that the readings correlate with this pain, meaning that most likely there will be very high and erratic readings. 3. Oftentimes there is a "training effect" meaning that the patient needs to do the test once before becoming accustomed to it. Once they have gotten used to it, the second 30 second test is clear and consistent. Should I perform tests other than the dynamic lumbar flexion test? What about lateral flexions and rotations? 1. Performing the Lumbar Lateral Flexion and Rotation is advantageous in that the more data you have, the more information you have on your patient. 2. With lateral flexions and rotations, you are following the same procedure as above, but marking at "peaks" in full rotation or lateral flexion (the highest points reached) and then "valleys" in neutral. 3. Press the spacebar and start by having the patient perform a movement to the left (left lateral flexion, or left rotation). The software is set up so that you do lateral flexions first. 4. There is no need to wait the 2 seconds for the readings to stabilize when at the end of their range of motion. Simply hit the spacebar when at full Left Lateral Flexion for example. When they return to neutral, allow the readings to settle (typically 2 seconds) before pressing the spacebar. You can fit two lateral flexions on each screen, perhaps three. 5. To move from the lateral flexion screen to the Rotation screen, click the NEXT button to the far right on the screen. Troubleshooting Range of Motion It is very important to use the button on the probe properly. Never press and hold the button after the software has "beeped" to inform you that the button press has been accepted. If the button is held for too long, it will cause a reset of the device. You will simply have to restart the test if this occurs. How To Use Red Button On Probe To Navigate Software The button probe on the MyoVision Range of Motion Device was designed to allow you to perform all Range of Motion measures without having using the keyboard at all. 23-000-LBL01 Rev E Page 54 of 60

1. Once you have finished calibrating the device, click on "Flexion" to begin the test. The following instructions apply to all tests (flexion, extension etc.). 2. Hold Main probe at approximately T1, and the smaller Aux probe along the occipital with label to left or right. 3. While holding the probes between thumb and middle finger, rest the pinky and fourth finger on the body along the side of the probe to stabilize the probe on the body. 4. Make certain that the label on both probes is facing the same direction (left or right) depending on whether you are right or left handed. 5. With the patient in a neutral posture, press and hold the red button until the computer "beeps". This beep indicates that the "Zero" position has been recorded for the test you are performing. 6. Have the patient perform the test required (flexion in this example) and stop at the end range of motion. 7. Press and hold the red button until the computer "beeps" indicating that the reading has been taken. 8. To perform multiple readings (for AMA guides), have the patient return to the neutral posture, then WITHOUT pressing the button have the patient move to the end of range of motion again. Press the red button until the computer "beeps" and immediately release the button. The beep indicates the value for range of motion was stored. Again, follow the same process again taking the last of the three readings (five if required). 9. To take data when it is not important to meet AMA guides, you can simply press and release the button three times (with a second or two break between beeps) to store three readings with the body at the end range of motion. TRICK: After completing a range of motion, to move to the next without touching the keyboard at all, simply press the button and release as soon as the computer "beeps" and you see the screen for the next range of motion. By using the button, you can move from motion to motion without ever touching the computer keyboard. What to do when the readings appear "Invalid"? 1. The variability between trials of each range of motion is measured, and compared with allowed values. If you receive the message and voice prompt "VALID TEST", simply press and release the button to continue to the next motion.

23-000-LBL01 Rev E

Page 55 of 60

2. If you receive the message and voice prompt "INVALID TEST" this means that there was too much variability between trials, and you can either accept this, or redo the test. 3. To redo the test, click REDO at the bottom right of the screen. Make certain to hold the probes against the body in a stable fashion (use your pinky and fourth finger against the body to stabilize the probe to get better reproducibility. Once you have completed the test, you can review or print the report by clicking the REVIEW button.
