With this model we can explain the importance of the concept of Tensegrity, as a new paradigm of biomechanics, and its significance for the development of appropriate treatment and achieve a balance distributed mechanical work.
Thanks to Tensegrity inventors Mr. Buckmister Fuller, Sr. Georges Emmerich and Sr. Keneth Snelson, the Simplex Tensegrity, illustrates the behavior of a volume to external and internal mechanical actions .
Ideally suited for teaching, and the explanation of the concept of tensegrity, is also a useful tool tries to explain to their patients the reasoning of therapy, and the importance of balanced equilibrium of tensions, harmonized by connective tissue.
With this model you can explain the importance of the concept of Tensegrity and its significance for the development of appropriate treatment and achieve a balance distributed mechanical work.
In this way we can explain in a visual way, mechanical actions such as the force of gravity to keep standing, contraction both concentric how eccentric muscle, the behavior of the meniscus or intervertebral discs to withstand the weight load, and what is happening in the muscle fiber or neural tissue while performing a stretch.
