Clinical use. Barocrurography is used for the study of hyperpressure in subjects who have pelvic girdle pathologies due to prolonged sitting position: paraparesis, paraplegias of various origins (spina bifida, bone marrow trauma outcomes); Crural tendinopathies, large trochanterites from local hyperpressure.
Protocol. The patient is positioned in a sitting position on the platform. He must stand still with the upper limbs that have his hands above the knees, while the shins are at 90 ° with respect to the femurs and do not move for 30 seconds on the seat of his wheelchair, or on a chair, first normally and then using the aid (horizontally or longitudinally hollow fiber anti-decubitus cushion, self-modeling cushion) that you intend to try.
Procedures. The indicators used are quantitative and qualitative:
1. Pressures on surface expressed in cm2
2. Comparison of the same pressures above the pillow
3. Colorimetric study
Execution times for the exam: from 1 minute to 2 minutes depending on how many aids are tested
Conclusions. Within 30 minutes the operator analyzes the data (indicators), prints the graphs and concludes, delivering everything to the patient in a sealed envelope.
The report written and signed by the doctor with the
diagnostic conclusions, prescriptions or therapeutic or clinical in-depth
