The future of assessment is here - Introducing the AxIT system 

Today the MAT have introduced a new company Strength By Numbers and a new approach to movement assessment that we hope will change the health and fitness industries forever and bring them into the 21st century.

The AxIT system is the worlds first complete objective movement assessment solution featuring three revolutionary devices:

- the Push-IT manual muscle tester (with a twist).
- the Pull-IT strength assessment tool (unlike anything you've seen).
- the Stomp-IT force plates (that you can take anywhere).

This is a continuation of what we have been working on for the past five years with MAT - Movement Assessment Technologies and massive step forward for an industry traditionally lacking data to make the right decisions for the people we work with.

Start getting amazing results with the AxIT system that will allow you to:

- Collect meaningful, actionable data and measure strength and power imbalances,...

Agility T-test

assessment Feb 17, 2018

The agility T-Test is a test that is commonly used to assess an athletes/individuals to move forwards, backwards and side to side. It is performed on a safe and consistent surface to ensure that test-retest reliability is high. Besides testing an individual's ability to move in all directions as quickly as possible it also tests a “combination of leg speed, leg power, and agility for performance” (Pauole. K, Madole. K, Garhammer. J, Lacourse. M and Rozenek. R, 2000).

Males that achieve less than 9.5 seconds and Females that achieve less than 10.5 seconds are ranked as excellent showing that they can coordinate lower limb strength, power and speed whilst changing multiple directions.

Having the ability to produce a muscle contraction that is quick and powerful in a sporting situation and the stronger and more efficient this contraction is the lower the likelihood of injury (Hübscher M  , Zech A  , Pfeifer K , Hänsel F , Vogt L , Banzer W , 2010). The...

Strength Testing with Hip Abduction Holds/Raises

assessment Feb 17, 2018

Hip abduction is a movement where our leg moves away from the midline of body or the opposing leg, this movement is produced by our Gluteal muscles (Maximus, Medius and Minimus).

This movement is extremely important in a sporting or dynamic context as knee adduction “associated with increased knee valgus angles during athletic movements” (Cronin. B, Johnson. S, Chang.E, Pollard. C and Norcross. M,  2016).

Decreased Hip Abduction strength or excessive hip adduction has been a cause of issue for people with patellofemoral pain (PFP). With research being perfromed by Ramskov. D et al (2015) they found that “eccentric hip abduction strength that is higher than normal may reduce the risk of PFP” (Ramskov. D, Barton.C, Neilsen. R and Rasmussen. S, 2015).

The single leg abduction exercise when used correctly in a clinical setting can decrease our risk of associated lower limb injuries to the hip, knee or ankle. By performing the activity in a controlled way we...

Strength Testing with Hip Adduction Holds/Raises

assessment Feb 17, 2018

Hip Adduction is the movement of where we bring our leg closer to the midline of the body or closer to the other leg. It is largely performed by our adductor group (adductor magnus, longus and brevis). Hip adductor weakness has been related to pain in through the groin in sports that require repetitive change of direction ( “Large eccentric hip adduction strength deficits were found in soccer players with adductor-related groin pain compared with asymptomatic soccer players” (Thorborg K, Branci S, Nielsen MP, Tang L, Nielsen MB and Hölmich P, 2014). Another article found that “decreased hip adduction strength is a risk factor for developing groin injuries” (Harøy.J, Thorborg. K, Serner. A, Bjørkheim. A,Rolstad.L, Hölmich.P, Bahr. R and Andersen.T, 2017).

The single leg adduction exercise when used correctly in a clinical setting can decrease our risk of associated groin injuries and performance detriments. The Copenhagen...
