“Health is closely intertwined with movement, which is prerequisite for walking. Walking is one of our most natural movement; it affects the funcitioning of the whole body...”
The publication on Hungary’s first motion analysis laboratory begins with these thoughts. At this laboratory, you can also participate in a complex motion test as a private person.
What is the Kinesio Movement Analysis Laboratory good for?
At the movement analyzis laboratory (Kinesio Lab), located in the Festetich Bathhouse of the Hévíz Thermal Bath and St. Andrew's Hospital for Rheumatology and Rehabilitation, special, instrumental, computer-controlled motion tests are carried out. The analytical function of these tests enable the accurate, thorough examination of the movement system of the human body.
At Kinesio lab, which has 3 treatment rooms, qualified physiotherapists help guests / patients get a complete picture about the condition of their bones, joints, musculature, their body composition, and gait.
After analyzing the results produced by the machine, patients will receive a clear medical report and, if necessary, a treatment plan, which can be supplemented by dietetic advice if required.
Dr Attila Kvarda, the Director General of the Hospital for Rheumatology, pointed out that the movement analysis laboratory is an important part of the Traditional Hévíz Therapy, as it helps to get a precise picture of the patient's pre- and post-treatment state. With this complex examination, the effectiveness of treatments in movement therapy can be measured objectively both in the short and the long term.
In the long run, with the help of the test results, the specialists can draw up a more specialized treatment package for the patients with certain types of symptoms, therefore they can develop the most effective treatment processes. In addition to the patient’s feedback, with the aid of the clearly measurable computer analysis, the effects of treatment processes can be checked from time to time.
Kinesio lab tests are available to anyone for a fee.
