K-7 NEUROMUSCULAR DIAGNOSTICS:
The K-7 is a sophisticated computerized device used in neuromuscular diagnostics of the temporomandibular joint. It measures 3 important parameters:
- EMG: evaluates related activity of the involved muscles for the head, neck and chewing muscles for locating muscle dystonia and painful trigger points. This is good for tracking progress as it allows the patient and doctor to follow the progression of the muscles returning to their normal healthy status during treatment.
- JAW TRACKING: computerized magnetic jaw tracking which allows the doctor to examine the movement of the jaw in 3 dimensions over time.
- SONOGRAPHY OF THE TMJ: provides a fingerprint of the joint pathology and progression.
