What is a QMA System... ?

Quantitative Muscle Assessment "QMA" is a computer based system that assists you in testing muscle strength and fatigue.  The subject or patient pulls or pushes against a strap that is connected to an adjustable frame.  An in-line force transducer is connected in series with the strap and effort.  The patient/subject may be supine or prone on an electric HIGH/low examination table to facilitate the strap placement and isolation of the muscle or muscle group to test.  The effort is exerted, and the force transducer creates an electrical impulse (analog signal).  The analog signal is carried to anlog/digital converter that changes the data to a usable and comprehensible format.  Documentation of the progres of the patient may be produced in reports that are self populating.  The reports compares the efforts of the patient to previous visits and displays the effort change of each muscle tested from one visit to another.  The report is also capable of producing an expected amount of effort for each muscle tested, based on age, gender and BMI of the patient, and compares each muscle tested to the expected amounts.   A complete report (EMR) may be produced at your requests in moments.  Your comments, evaluation and observations may be entered to complete the report.  

Manual Muscle Testing is all that is required, why should I use QMA... ?
Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) is the accepted method of evaluating and assessing the progress of a patient through rehabilitation.  A trained therapist is capable of using MMT to score a patients strengths/weaknesses, is able to document those efforts in transcribing that information, is able to reference texts for comparison data, compute the expected strengths of each muscle, and complete a report on those findings.    OR -
The same theapist may use QMA, acquire objective transferrable and repeatable data, that may be sourced by other therapists if needed, may document the progress of the patient through therapy, and request a progress report that compares each muscle tested with prior visits, and computes an expected amount for each muscle - based on gender, age and BMI of the patient.
NO transcribing, NO extra paperwork to document the sessions, and NO effort in making a completed report.    More time spent with patients, and less time spent on paperwork. 

The patient is much stronger than me ...

You may objectively assess the opposite extemety of the patient, and rehabilitate the patient accordingly.  From Pop baseball to NFL professionals, force transducers are avilable to assess 50 to 1000 lbs of effort. 


How do I begin a test ...?

After logging in using your initials or name, check the lower right of the screen to ascertain the correct protocol.  If the protocol is correct,  select file and with a new patient, add the information, or with an existing patient select view name/screen number and select the proper patient.  You are now ready to begin testing.  

Where can I find on line help ...?

The QMA user manual should be available on your computer.  Another copy is on the QMA installation media - CD and on this website.  After opening MS-Word, and selecting QMA user manual you may wish to scroll through the manual, or  go to EDIT, select find or search and type in a short description of the topic.  Example - "Finish Previous Visit".  


How prompt is QMA support.. ?
QMA support technicians are expected to respond to email sent to    them within the same business day of inquiry.  contact QMA tech

What if I need fast support - is there a technician  I can call ?       
Requests for assistance via email or phone are responded to upon receipt. 
Support may be made via telephone from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM EST - Monday through Friday.
QMA support technicians have supported common to critical situations in research testing for the past eighteen years.  Although a sympathizing face may be comforting, the experience of our support technicians in remedying hardware and/or software difficulties cannot be duplicated locally.  Most problems encountered can be corrected "over the phone" with email instructions, or a session of RemotePC, ZOOM or similar local presence to find and correct a software setting.   In the unlikely event of a hardware malfunction, expedited services, including next day delivery may be utilized.   
The QMA System is established on exceptional product and support.
