FMS-Functional Movement System is a system of evaluation and classification of the fundamental motor patterns for the normal functioning of the human body. By screening these schemes, FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are problems that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and that can distort the awareness of one’s body.
The FMS test generates a score which is used to identify problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the corrective exercises most useful in restoring solid motor patterns.
FMS-Functional Movement System
FMS – Functional Movement System a protocol for assessing the executive quality of the movement belonging to a wider work system called Functional Movement System (created by the Americans Gray Cook and Lee Burton)
The FMS-Functional Movement System allows to quantify, through a numerical value, the functionality and efficiency of a simple motor gesture (which is the basis of increasingly complex and sport-specific motor skills).
The screening is based on seven coded tests that explore the ability to manage and coordinate body segments during complex movements performed globally, joint mobility and muscle-joint stabilization capacity.
The evaluation method is very simple, repeatable and easy to perform, both for the client-patient and for the personal trainer who must evaluate.
The different tests have some specificities:
- mobilità: spalle, schiena, anche, ginocchia, caviglie,
- stabilità: spalle e schiena
- mobilità: anche, ginocchia, caviglie
- stabilità: fianchi, core
- mobilità e stabilità: tronco, spalla, anca, caviglia
- flessibilità: quadricipiti
- stabilità: ginocchio
- mobilità: spalle, scapole, spina toracica
5 LEG RAISING
- flessibilità: ischiocrurali
- stabilità: core
6 PUSH UP
- Stabilità: core
7 ROTARY STABILITY
- Stabilità multiplanare del core
