Abstract
A method is presented for analyzing the operating characteristics of man performing as the monitoring link in a man-task system. Myoelectric activity is recorded simultaneously with biomechanical output. The resultant biomechanical profile yields more comprehensive information than traditional methods of rehabilitation evaluation. Case report is presented of a 37-year-old woman with severe head injury and contusion of the brain, undergoing rehabilitative therapy and testing following craniotomy. The tests consist of the subject pronating and supinating the handle of a specially designed kinesiometer with adjustable torque levels; the method allows for objective measurement of the patients gross muscular efficiency, fine manipulative ability, and useful range of motion.
