We all know screenings are a very effective way to gain new patients, and using the MyoVision software makes it that much easier. Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of your screenings:
9. Use the QuickScreen procedure at screenings. This performs a test of the cervical and lumbar spine. Simply roll up the patient’s shirt and use a hair clip to clip the shirt in place, leaving enough room to measure the lumbar spine. Use a second hair clip if necessary to clip long hair.
10. Always perform the test standing. Psychologically, people consider it a commitment when they are required to sit and feel trapped, as when a salesperson at a car dealership asks you to be seated when discussing the purchase of a vehicle. People feel much more comfortable when they can walk up, be tested, and walk away.
11. Given a choice, use the sEMG instead of the thermograph for a screening. It's much easier to understand. The layperson quickly locks into the concept of muscle tension and how it relates to their spines. Correlating temperature to a spine is a larger leap and likely will result in more explanation on your part. Additionally, the thermograph is a temperature-reading instrument, the results of which may not be accurate in an uncontrolled environment.
ScanVision sEMG users: there are cost saving alternatives to batteries.
Are you spending hundreds of dollars replacing the batteries in your ScanVision? Well, what if we told you that you don't have to? We have 2 cost saving alternatives for you to consider:
We want to ensure your test are as accurate as possible - one way is to make sure your electrodes are in good condition. Below are examples for both the E-Scan static electrodes and the DynaROM electrodes.
For your DynaROM tests, you are using the Dynamic Electrodes (item# pb-50). The image to the right shows both good and bad electrodes. To get the best connectivity and results, you want to make sure the gel in the middle of the electrodes are dark and moist (as shown by the 3 right-most electrodes). When they become dry (as shown by the 2 electrodes on the left) your test results will suffer.
Dynamic electrodes are good for one-time use only and must be thrown away after each use. So make sure you have plenty in stock - visit www.store.myovision.com to purchase.
