Sažetak
This paper describes the implementation of a new dinamometer system with thermography heat dissipation monitoring, and the implications of these new views in physiatry, rheumatology and neurology over a single data processing algorithm and the concept of motor hand function evaluation involving the determination of quantitative indicators. In rehabilitation medicine, muscle function is assessed during the physical examination of a patient. Although a simple computer supported approved dynamometer instrument improves the assessment of static strength, it is rarely used in clinical practice, where dynamic measurements are preferred. A computer-assisted electronic dynamometer has been developed to enable a clinician to measure dynamic muscle function in the standardised manner. Dynamometer comprises a force transducer and a movement transducer interfaced to a personal computer. In the study dynamic measurement protocols were used, based on a biomechanical analysis. During the execution of test exercise used the method of thermographic heat dissipation recording. The results obtained showed the possibility of objectification biomechanical properties and heat dissipative characteristics of the hand. The results of data analysis from calculated characteristic parameters show the correlation with patients' clinical status i.e. the motor status of the hand and efficiency of temperature monitoring standard deviation 0.92. It is concluded that the computer supported dynamometer is suitable for use in diagnostic in physical and rehabilitation medicine.
