The reliability of using digital fluoroscopic video to evaluate both residual limb position and vertical displacement within the socket has been well established.

Much of students’ training at Baylor University is done in the Academy’s state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, where they develop ideas and explore solutions for the special challenges faced by military physical therapists, such as treating stress and combat injuries. The tasks are made easier by the use of a number of sophisticated machines found in the lab.

A Digital Motion X-ray machine helps physical therapists pinpoint the location and extent of an injury when he affected body part is in motion. As a patient moves an arm or leg, the machine shows the movements of the affected tendons and joints.
