David Marcarian, creator of the Myovision scan, got his undergraduate degree in physics and a master in psycho-physiology. Learn how he discovered and implemented surface EMG during his NHA grant and NASA employment at age 26. It’s a great story about jets, science and removing electrical interference and stumbling upon creating a device that can be used to measure muscle and nerve excitability or lack thereof. The company has advanced over the years and has dynamic range of motion device to measure range of motion but also is able to measure if muscles are firing in the correct sequence, DynaROM . This way you can tell if someone is bending over and faking a muscle injury or if it is real. His device is in the AMA book as a standard for measuring range of motion and it correlates .99 with VAS score. State of Florida tried to disprove the technology which would have had far reaching consequences on the chiropractic profession but David won all the way to the Supreme Court which is all documented here. Myovision is being used a lot by physiatrists and chiropractors and his other flagship product Proformavision is used in twelve hospitals.
DynaROM is for objective data and the sEMG is to help keep patients focused on function versus symptoms by showing objective data on how they are progressing. Objective data is more important than dogma. However, just because you can’t measure something doesn’t mean it does not exist, it’s a real phenomenon: he learned that from NASA. They found that after 10 seconds post adjustment muscle activity was reduced by 30 percent.
He will be featured as an expert witness on the new FOX show: You the Jury.
Remember, Individual differences are the norm. Students don’t be afraid to jump into the personal injury arena of patient care. Health fair screening tip: let the patient tell you what the myovision scan shows.
He raced Corvette Z06 and holds a record, destroyed the Ferrari and was challenged by the Porsche club. Marcarian also crashed at 158 mph, videos are on his site. Plus a secret passion of his that you have to listen to too find out. It will blow your mind… around minute 49-51 ish.
