Functional Proprioceptive Stimulation
Triggering motor activities via proprioception
(1) Functional Proprioceptive Stimulations (FPS) are applied on the musculo-tendinous junction.
(2) FPS mechanically stimulate the muscle spindles, mimicking the sensory signals – Ia fibers (3) of functional movements.
(4) This neurosensory trick activates related sensory-motor areas allowing patients to feel natural movements.
(5) Because sensory & motor systems are interdependent, the CNS then reacts by initiating corresponding movements.
