    ProbeFix Dynamic

    ProbeFix Dynamic is a new device that supports high-quality ultrasound measurements during dynamic exercise. The ProbeFix Dynamic keeps an ultrasound probe in place throughout intense movement. This can be used in sports training, muscle recovery exercises, during general rehabilitation practices or even in intensive care departments. The seamless combination of ProbeFix Dynamic and portable ultrasound systems has made it possible to monitor muscles dynamically while running or cycling. This creates new research possibilities within the area of muscle imaging.

    Half marathon, full potential

    Every year in October during the marathon in Eindhoven. To conduct a study in collaboration with Philips and TU Eindhoven, four participants ran without any trouble ‘wearing’ a Philips Lumify attached to a ProbeFix Dynamic which allowed recording images during intense and prolonged exercise. This bold experiment shows the potential that ProbeFix Dynamic brings to the study of muscle behaviour in motion.
    ProbeFix Dynamic T

    ProbeFix Dynamic T

    ProbeFix Dynamic T is specifically designed to support the linear array Telemed probe with the larger field of view (6 cm). This T-version is suitable for clinical and research musculoskeletal applications. Additionally, this probe fixation tool offers a greater degree of freedom and offers the possibility to attach visual markers to enable optical tracking of the device in space. The silicone feet can be exchanged easily to make the tool fit different body types.

    Dynamic motion analysis

    Combined with other motion capture analysis systems the ProbeFix Dynamic T brings a new dimension to MSK ultrasound and human motion analysis. As demonstrated by Amsterdam UMC, gait analysis can be done parallel to ultrasound measurements.

    Others about the ProbeFix Dynamic

    This allows you to monitor muscles and injuries properly, in motion, under stress. Fantastic. Now it is possible to determine when an athlete can go to the max.

    Frank Hagenaars

    Sports physiotherapist HC Oranje Rood, FC Eindhoven

    We train about eight times a week and it is very nice if you can see what you are doing, what the muscles do under stress. This can lead to better insights. I was injured for some time and we could hardly determine the injury. With ProbeFix Dynamic we could have known what was going on. I definitely see the future of this.
