Moving on, functional movement screen is a tool designed to identify injury risk through compensatory movement patterns and inefficient mobility that potentially reduces performance. The SFMA is a series of 7 full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain.
Hardware describes the raw elements that a person naturally inherits. Flexibility, stride length and range of motion (ROM) are examples of organic factors which affect quality of movement. Software is a more intricate web where open (Automatic motor control actions, forceful in nature, become second nature overtime) and closed loop (Controlled movement during execution, due to not being at a mature stage yet, and stored in long term memory) motor programs within an individual is observed
