GRADES IN MMT

Grades Above Fair

The standardization of muscle testing techniques related to the above strength classification only requires a specific place the range of motion in which the part is held by the subject when manual pressure is applied. Muscle strength is not constant throughout the range of motion and in manual muscle testing it is impractical to try to scale strength at various points in the range of motion. If the part is placed in the test position or has been actively moved to that position, ranking above. Equity is determined by the ability to keep the party in the test position with respect to several degrees above equity. If the test position is used, the examiner places the part in the specified position and then pressure is applied. In order for there to be a standardization of testing and classification techniques, when using the test move, the must proceed in the same point in the range of motion as that indicated as the test position.

Good grade

The degree of normality means that the muscle can maintain the test position against severe pressure. This degree is not is meant to indicate the maximum force of the subject, but rather the maximum pressure that the examiner it is applied to achieve what one might call "full" muscle strength. In terms of judgment, it could be described as an adequate force for ordinary functional activities. Become competent in judging this With all his might, an examiner must evaluate normal individuals of various ages and sizes and of both genders.

Fair Grade

The good grade means that the muscle can hold the test position against moderate pressure. Right degree The degree of regularity indicates that a muscle can hold the part in a test position against the resistance of gravity, but it cannot be supported if even slight pressure is added. On tests such as triceps and quadriceps, the examiner avoid a "locked" position of the joint which could give an undue advantage to a slightly less muscle that fair in force. In the area of ​​acceptable qualification, the question arises whether the force to hold the test position is equivalent to the force required to move through the range of motion to the test position. With a few exceptions, the general rule is that the test move can be performed if the test position can be held. In some muscle tests, the bone in which the muscle is inserted is moved from a suspended position in the vertical plane to the horizontal plane. Quadriceps, deltoids and hip rotators tested in sitting position and shoulder triceps and rotators tested in prone position constitute this group. The leverage exerted by the weight of the part increases as the part goes moves towards completion of the arc and the muscle strength required to maintain the test position against gravity it is usually sufficient to perform the test movement against gravity. In some tests, the bone in which the muscle is inserted moves from a horizontal to a vertical position, and less force is required to take the test. position needed to perform the test movement. This occurs during hamstring tests when tested with knee flexion in the prone position and elbow flexor test when examined in the supine position.

Poor grade

The ability to move through a partial range of motion in the horizontal plane is rated poor. The degree of poverty it means that the muscle is able to complete the range of motion in the horizontal plane. The degree of inclination denotes the ability to move in the horizontal plane to complete the range of motion against resistance or to support full position against pressure. It also means that the muscle is able to move through a partial arch of movement in anti-gravity position. The strength ranges within the scarce grade are significant enough to merit these subclassifications for more definitive classification purposes. The ability to perform the full range of motion in the horizontal plane is nowhere near the ability to perform the gravity test for most muscles, especially those in the hip joint. The addition of pressure or resistance to the element moving in the horizontal plane provides the addition A force that approaches that of gravity in the anti-gravity position. Hip abductors, for example, can complete the abduction movement in the supine position (i.e. horizontal plane), which would give a degree of mala. What strength improves, the patient can resist more e

Trace Grade

The degree of trace means that you can feel a weak contraction in a muscle that can be palpated or that the tendon becomes slightly prominent; however, no movement of the part is seen. Follow-up assessments can be determined upon almost any location.

Zero Grade

A score of zero means there is no evidence of visible or palpable muscle contraction.
