The Myotronics K-7 is a computer capable of measuring many parameters.
1. CMT. Computerized Mandibular Tracking. This documents function and range of motion of the jaws.
2. Sonography. This records and analyzes sounds and noises that damaged joints make. The specific noises and the patterns help identify internal problems without the need for surgery or MRIs.
3. Electromyography. This records the health and status of the muscles that move the jaws, much like an EKG can record the heart muscles.
Ultra-low Frequency TENS
TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) Because it is "ultra-low frequency" TENS, it is used to relax, recharge and rejuvenate muscles that have been fighting an unbalanced bite. (Unlike pain "blocking" TENS used for back muscles, which works by exhausting the muscles). Often headaches, face pain, and restricted movement are alleviated by TENSing.
