Cutting-edge monitoring of achilles and patella tendon health to prevent onset of tendinopathy.
Our Tendon Monitoring service utilizes Ultrasound Tissue Characterization (UTC) to profile patella and Achilles tendons at the start of the season, and depending on your desired frequency, throughout the subsequent months. The computerized UTC delivers a 3-D ultrasound data-block that can be used for tomographic visualization and tissue characterisation which provides a graphical representation of the players tendon at a specific point in the season.
This stratifies risk, minimising time loss injuries or any detriment in performance as a result of tendinopathy, as it allows focused intervention to individual athletes. The team provides tailored rehabilitation of injured athletes through various loading programs in season to expedite return to play. The team guides implementation of prevention programs throughout the season to minimise the time loss and performance detriment associated with tendinopathy.
