The QLD Advanced Musculoskeletal Assessment System
The Deductive Health Solutions QLD Muscular Assessment System is a SaaS, cloud-based software application that utilized advanced AI, Deep-Learning, Neural Networking algorithms to accurately uncover muscular instabilities, weaknesses and deficiencies in the body. The System has been proven in hundreds of cases with professional, collegiate and amateur athletes as well as sport and fitness enthusiasts.
The APP is web-based and operates on computers, tablets and phones. It operates in conjunction with a number of fitness management software systems, providing additional functionality with wearables and plans for nutrition and deeper fitness routines.
The APP can be administered by a personal or physical trainer, sports clinician, or chiropractor. It can be learned in a short amount of time and requires no additional devices or exercise equipment. The QLD System APP requires about twenty minutes to complete and the results are quickly available on a Fitness APP and by email or pdf.
The resulting APP Personal Stability Report includes detailed specifics about observed muscular deficiencies and weaknesses along with a visual Neuro-Mapping of potential spinal anomalies and stresses. It provides a detailed Prescriptive Workout "Plan-of-Action" to allow a trainer to schedule stretch-band exercises to correct the discovered deficiencies.a number
The QLD System is based on the concept that the body strives for equilibrium - so that when one part of the body is injured, the body compensates for the injury by adding more activity and stress to another part.
Muscular Compensation, then, is an innovative way that the body adapts to a deficient unstable musculoskeletal movement pattern. This compensation is part of an effort by the body to help reduce potential injuries until the root cause of the real movement deficiency is addressed.
The DHS Assessment System uncovers these muscular compensations and accurately reports the true causes of instability and deficiency in the body. The proprietary AI, Deep-Learning algorithms continously analyzes and recalculates muscular movements to identify areas of bodily compensation.
THE QLD SYSTEM
The QLD SYSTEM utilizes sophisticated, "state-of-the-art" musculoskeletal algorithms which interact with a cloud-based, complex anatomical deep-learning, neural network engine database. They continuously analyze the results of "Range-of-Motion" examinations to predict true muscular deficiencies and instabilities in the body.
The deep learning algorithms dynamically run, in real-time, through various layers of a proprietary muscular neural network, which is designed to continuously analyze muscles and muscle groups which fail or deficiently respond under a Range-of-Motion test. As each test is completed, the algorithms accurately predict potential musculoskeletal instabilities and record the results in an Output Queue.
The algorithms methodically search and cross reference:
All Potential Muscular Deficiencies in the Body All Limitations indeitified by the Range-of-Motion Tests All Jint Instabilities Contributing to the Identified Deficiencies All current and/or Potential Spinal Abnormalities
RANGE OF MOTION TESTS
The QLD System consists of 44 individual, unique "Range-of-Motion" tests developed to accurately measure the total scope of actual an potential muscle imbalances and instabilities in the body. With each successive test the System analyzes, in real-time, all possible muscle and muscle group movements and their interactions across 700 possible affiliations.
Open and Closed Kinetic Chains
The QLD System also analyzes both Open and Closed Kentic Chains to track possible muscle movement deficiencies and compensations throughout the body.
A “Kinetic Chain” refers to the idea that the body is a system of interrelated segments that work together to produce everyday actions such as walking, running, jumping, and lifting.
In Closed chain movements, the end of the chain - the limb or limbs doing the movement - is fixed in place on the ground. For example, the squat, deadlift, pushup, and pull-up, in which your hands or feet remain stationary.
In Open chain movements the ends of the chain are not stationary. For example, the bench press, biceps curl, triceps extension, lateral raise)
AI, Deep-Learning, Neural Network Processing
The QLD System utilizes the most advanced AI, Deep-Learning Neural Network algorithms to analyze and predict muscular instabilities, weaknesses and deficiencies throughout the body.
The DHS AI, Deep-Learning Neural Network is comprised of a variety of node layers, containing an input layer, one or more hidden process layers, and an output layer. Each node within the network or "artificial neuron", represents an individual muscle or muscle group and connects to other nodes throughout the network. A single Range-of-Motion test might connect to a variety of other nodes modifying their results and their associated data weights and layer thresholds.
As each ROM test is completed and recorded the System, in real-time, utilizes AI, Deep-Learning algorithms to recalculate and reevaluate all potential muscular imbalances and compensations throughout the body.
The System methodically searches, cross-references and develops new learning models for:
All potential muscular deficiencies at each of the joints of the body
All limitations identified by the ROM tests
All joint instabilities contributing to the identified deficiencies
All current and / or spinal abnormalities
QLD SYSTEM REPORTS
The Personal Stability Report
The Personal Stability Index is a symmetrical balance score that assesses the body from head to toe based upon the identified muscular deficiencies. The score is utilized to track progress from one evaluation to the next with a simple glance.
The higher the score the higher the overall muscular stability!
The Joint Instability Analysis
The Joint Instability Analysis Report is a blueprint to bodily compensations an potental injuries. When deficiencies are found, they highlight muscles and muscle groups that are imbalanced and stressed which may lead to painful bodily compensations or serious injury.
In this example, the right side, lower body has the greatest instability. The Lower-body, Right-Side Hip is 60% unstable an the Knee is 63% unstable.
There are also instabilities on the Lower-body, Left Side with the Hip at 40% unstable and the Knee at 38%.
The Neuro-Mapping Report
The Neuro-Mapping Report is an innovative technology that allows a greater insight into the stress loads that are placed along the spine by muscular deficiencies and movement patterns.
It enables the identification of specific areas of possible abnormalities such as bulges, herniations and the like. Spinal abnormalities can place pressure on nerve roots causing disrupted neurological signals from muscles and muscle groups. The spine graph also acts as a warning system to movement patterns.
For example, being able to identify a major or severe stress in the cervical spine could immediately lead to avoidance of daily activities that increase compression forces along the spine.
In this case Region 2 (C5-T2 of the Spine) is Moderately Severe while Region 5 exhibits Minor Severity and has the possibilities of a more severe action, if not corrected soon.
Workout Development Plan of Action Plan
The Workout Action Plan provides an anatomical blueprint for each person. It allows your trainer or sports coach to help design corrective programs specifically formulated to strengthen an stabilize the identified muscular compensations, weaknesses or instabilities.
The Action Plan are series of individualized stretch-band exercises that focus on areas of the body that require the greatest attention. The Exercise Plan is uploaded to your Trainerize APP which allows your trainer or therapist to schedule times for rebuilding your balance, strength and stability.
The Range of Motion listed for each exercise allows your trainer to determine the best exercise schedule and Workout Plan for your individual needs.
There is also a Workout Action Plan for strengthening and stabilizing areas of Spinal stress and abnormalities. These are also stretch-band exercises which are uploaded to Trainerize for scheduling by your trainer.
