|Official Title:||Reliability and Validation of 3-D Electromagnetic Tracking During Pelvic Floor Muscle (PFM) Activation - a Pilot Study|
- the way in x-y coordinates for the pelvic floor mouvement measured by the ultrasonography and TrakSTAR [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]the mouvement of the pelvic floor is measured similtanous by the ultrasound and the TrakSTAR
- EMG [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]EMG will measure the contraction of the plevic floor
|Study Start Date:||August 2012|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||May 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|20 healthy women|
There will be two measurements. One measurement of MVIC and quick flicks will be done in a standing and supine position with 3 repetitions. The TrakSTARTM, Ultrasound, surface EMG and Accelerometer will measure the PFM movements and activation simultaneously. The Ultrasound is measured from one tester (to guaranty a high intratester reliability) (Sherburn et al., 2005).
TrakSTARTM, surface EMG and Accelerometer will measure 3 Trampoline jumps. The measurements will be done once during one hour. The women will insert the vaginal probe by themselves and stay dressed during the measurement procedure. The measurements will be done in a standardized way. All the arrangements are made to ensure the hygiene requirements.
