The Performance Matrix: A cheat sheet

Many of our customers come to us through our education. Whether Kinetic Control or Movement Science Practitioner, our courses are a great way for practitioners to get familiar with Comera Movement Science Principles, embed them in their practice and obtain a qualification that is recognised across the world.

But where to go from there?

In large part, The Performance Matrix (TPM) is our answer to that question. It provides clinicians and sports professionals with a clinic-ready solution for assessing and retraining movement patterns. The Performance Matrix allows you to embed CMS principles comprehensively within your practice.

How Does It Work?

The Performance Matrix is actually a bundle of matrices, each covering a sport, type of activity or region of the body. We have matrixes ranging from basketball to workplace health.

Each of these matrices are made up of a collection of ‘tests’, which you can use to evaluate your clients’ movement strategies. As you progress through these tests, the system will ask you a series of questions that are designed to help you to get to the root of the issue that the client may be facing. This supports the assessment process by providing a robust and clinic-ready framework that you can use to quickly identify risk associated or performance diminishing movement strategies wherever you are.

Once you’ve determined the source of the problem, you can then use the TPM catalogue to build a tailored programme of exercise for retraining and rehabilitation. The catalogue is available for free to TPM Pro users and as an optional add-on for those using TPM Express.

So what’s in it for me?

In short, TPM makes assessing and retraining movement a lot faster and automates many of the more routine parts of the process. This makes your life easier, reduces the scope for human error and frees up time for other things. The platform is grounded in the same 35 years of research and practice that underpin Kinetic Control, meaning you can be sure you’re obtaining convenience without compromising clinical best practice.
