What is ScanVision Static sEMG?

MyoVision’s ScanVision™ uses Static sEMG (surface electromyography) to measure electrical activity of the spinal muscles while weight bearing. It effectively provides a quantifiable means of showing you as the patient what Doctor Smasal feels with her hands. Simply put, it is an electronic form of palpation. The device effectively and scientifically measures the muscular response to spinal subluxation. E-Scan shows the results, in an easy to understand graphic, the levels of muscle tension about your spine. The ScanVision’s patented 5 electrode wirefree design allows Dr. Smasal to perform the test in less than a minute. MyoVision’s proprietary sEMG technology is a completely safe, painless and non-invasive method of evaluating your spinal health utilizing the well established EKG technology.

Is Static sEMG a valid tool?

Yes! Did you know this technology is now being used in hospitals? A published control group research study established the MyoVision as the first Static sEMG proven valid. It’s true previous wired system lacked reproducibility. However, this is not the case with the patented wireless ScanVision Static sEMG; a true Class II Diagnostic Device, equal to an EKG.

MyoVision’s all new Wirefree design has lead to a new resurgence in this very powerful tool. Research based, reproducible and powerful.

Utilizing technology nearly identical to the commonly used EKG/ECG, MyoVision’s ScanVision allow Dr. Smasal to do a “quick measure” of muscle tension about the spine, showing muscular compensation patterns for various spinal disorders.

The bars extend outward from the spine, showing your muscle tension levels on both left and right sides of the spine. The length of the bars are proportional to the amount of muscle tension. The readings are presented numerically as “microvolts” or millionths of a volt, and added all together into what we call your “EP Stress Score.”

The EP (Electrophysiologial) is the sum of all muscle activity around your spine, measured in microvolts. It makes understanding the Static sEMG a snap for you and Dr. Smasal.

It is best used as a baseline for the purpose of tracking your progress over time. Many think of it as a blood pressure cuff, or EKG for spinal health. The test results can be immediately emailed straight to the your smartphone. You and Dr. Smasal will be able to track your progress, making your healthcare choices a joint effort.
