PlyoDyne® allows training through small increments of weights, velocity, force, and varying ROM (range of movement) within (utilising) the fascial elasticity of the proper biomechanical chains under the 7 principles.
During the first phase of the training balance, coordination, elasticity, and stability ensure that muscles and tissue are prepared for the later program.
The stimulation of brain activity improves dysfunctional motor patterns and through neuroplasticity allows reprogramming towards correct sensory motor patterns body own sensor motor aspects, optimising the existing nervous system, new oriented muscle, and joint function.
Initial phases of training are designed to restore the basic movement patterns of spiral and diagonal chains. This improves balance though improved joint centration and training the shoulder within the total body patterns beginning with the foundation of proper core stability which is essential to maximise shoulder position and stability and improved functioning. This is achievable due to the closed-chain protocol of PlyoDyne® during the training and being in optimal position for the needs of revalidating patients or for the specific movement requirements of the athlete.
The dynamic movement and proprioception enhanced by return of proper function of the patient’s full spiral and oblique i.e. optimal co-ordination for enhanced performance.
This is optimal joint centration i.e. optimal process feedback to the brain and can best be described as muscle (movement patterns) chains being in constant flow with perfect timing, and so-called power-drifting, and again a true functional motion.
The increased mobility and flexibility of all tissues most crucially includes the fascia – this is the tissue responsible for functional muscle chain activity. Fascial oblique chains for example connect every muscle into a chain to allow a powerful optimal throwing action or punching, transmitting force from the closed chain ground up connection.
The parts in chains with least flexibility are first stretched, and above all the correct stretch of passive and active tissue occurs in cooperative and therefore optimal function.
The sequences and manner of movements result in an increase of functional central core stability in caudally closed chain. This again leads to cooperating shoulder and arm stability. This is only achievable by optimising core stability activity which connects and transfers the power from the lower body to the upper in the afore mentioned oblique and spiral chains.
PlyoDyne® unique design allows training in such a way resulting in this correct transfer of active muscle structures that goes along with a regulated support of passive joint structures and weak tissue.
In addition, patients can safely train with a closed eyes where and when appropriate increasing the proprioception and neuromuscular facilitation function.
With balance being restored to natural instinctive functioning, as an intrinsic part of every movement of the body, it is time to introduce an additional training dimension.
Subject of this training dimension are eccentric and concentric aspects. The extreme level of power needed to convert from an eccentric to a concentric motion, passing through the critical but with the equipment trainable zero force moment, fortifies the balance between ventral and dorsal strength of the shoulder joint, in full functional patterns (PNF Obliques and spiral patterns). Pure power training is also feasible in slow power mode. It is the unique design and variability allowed utilising these patterns with the equipment that differentiates our equipment from anything else currently available.
In this training phase the patient can begin training speed and endurance with the correct neuromuscular patterns once the injured tissue allows. The injury will heal through the first phase whilst the proper movement pattern is being corrected. With correct patterns and proprioception returned and optimised thanks to the unique attributes of PlyoDyne® and its ability to incorporate shoulder function within total body chain and reinforcement of the core foundation, the patient is in the best position to realise their potential performance while minimising chances of re-injury.
Controlling acceleration and deceleration of the movement allows for a super slow velocity training mode. Here the patient can reach the highest levels of optimal fine-tuned force and speed power training. With a clear focus on muscle and weak tissue functional training, especially related to white muscle fibres, you protect weak tissues such as joint capsule and ligaments, which is especially important for shoulder performance rotator cuff balanced activity. Due to the ROM (range of motion) of the shoulder these muscles and fascial structures act like contracting ligaments and therefore all shoulder structures have an extremely high density of various proprioceptive receptors, especially in the fascia.
All-inclusive effect of training phase
The latter attribute is the combination of the above-mentioned wide choice of variables that can be used in any combination of ways to create a bespoke and optimal rehabilitation protocol that is easily versatile depending on each patient’s progress. The systems attributes and safety for taking an athlete from injury to potentially a peak performance surpassing preinjury levels speaks for itself. The combination leads to a controlled and reproducible overall effect of a perfectly tuned fusion of power and speed training. The system is designed to work with our innate neurological patterns and re-wire the patterns through the neuroplasticity in our brains. There are no limits in defining the best possible anaerobic and aerobic potential for the athlete.
