From the desire to create a functional system for assessment and dynamic training in a sitting position, TecnoBody gave life to MF Trunk.
A product with which we at TecnoBody wanted to focus on the motor crossroads between upper, lower and upper limbs, an area of the body often lacking mobility and traumatized.
The patient sitting on the Balance Trunk system can control in real time the movement of his trunk and interact with the system thanks to constant visual feedback in real time. The applications of this intervention are numerous both in the neuromotor field, for example in cases of hemiplegia, and in the orthopedic field, in the treatment of scoliosis.
The heart of the Balance Trunk system is a very sensitive multi-axial platform able to detect the movements of the pelvis in the antero-posterior and right-left directions. The stability of the system is adjustable by the operator in relation to the proprioceptive capabilities of the patient from a minimum level of 1 (maximum instability) to a maximum of 30 (maximum stability).
Thanks to the flexibility of adjustment of the platform you can make your patient work on the mobility of the pelvis, correlating the work to the mobility of the lumbar area, acting on the limitations both at the joint and muscle level.
MF Trunk is designed to achieve maximum results in organizing specific training for your client.
For a correct assessment of the pelvis movement it is necessary that there is an angle of about 90 ° between the femur and the leg. For this reason, the MF Trunk system is equipped with an electric piston that places the patient in the correct position before the evaluation or the training session.
You can optimize assessment and training using the trunk sensor combined with MF Trunk.
With the use of the trunk sensor, while the patient manages the treadmill in a sitting position, you can easily analyze the movement of the rachis divided into two parts:
An exclusive connection between the user and the system, the TecnoBody Key allows you to save your parameters, workouts and reports, always available for constant feedback and to set up your own personalized plans.
Assessment of your client's postural structure is always available to evaluate step by step improvements during the set exercise protocol because the Key is recognized by the system at any time.
MF Trunk is a dynamic TRUNK Balance System of assessment and training in a sitting position and in getup transition, TRUNK-MF is also part of the Postural/Functional Circuit.

The software of the Trunk-MF systems is equipped with numerous assessment programs that allow the operator to understand exactly what the proprioceptive conditions of the patient are.
There are two main assessment modules:
Both evaluations are fundamental to fully understand the motor skills of the subject, especially in the pelvic area.
After an assessment phase, the software automatically proposes a series of rehabilitation tracks designed to improve the perceptive conditions of each individual movement. The rehabilitation tracks are particularly useful both for carrying out proper proprioceptive training and for further verification at the local level.
The colored points to be reached displayed by the software represent the end position or joint transit points (Joint Position Sense), while the lines represent the ideal kinesthetic path.
The software provides in real time the difference between the ideal kinesthetic line and the path executed by the patient.
Not only assessment and training, but also many games to train the balance, able to attract the attention of the patient during the training sessions and to keep up its level of concentration, but at the same time to make it escape from the classic session of motor rehabilitation.
A library of environments and workouts SKI, Shoot, Fly and Equilibrium combines the effectiveness of the TecnoBody training with the playfulness and functionality of the game.
The MF Trunk system is also managed through the TecnoBody Management System, the software platform that manages all the devices of the TecnoBody line.
All the features of the system are aimed at making it flexible and functional:
