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 recommendations (MRI, CT etc.) is delivered to the patient after the examination. If the patient is rehabilitative on the basis of disability, the project and the objective are provided as per PRI (individual rehabilitation plan).

Instrumental exams can then be repeated for normal follow-up based on the indicators to be checked over time. If, in order to check over time, the same doctor prescribes the tests to be repeated on a company request.
