I also read this article and thought it was well done.
As far as your question regarding use of RUSI, I don't currently use it in the clinic. With reimbursment decreasing and the cost of the RUSI still substantial it hasn't gone mainstream yet.
However, give it a few years, and as with all technology, it eventually becomes better and cheaper. I think when we see RUSI become more cost effective then it will find its way into mainstream practice. There is some evidence out there, I blieve, showing better outcomes for TA and MF rehabilitation using RUSI versus manual cueing and other techs.

I don't use RUSI because of the cost and time factor, but I can see where it would be very useful. Currently, I use the Stabilizer Pressure Biofeedback device that is recommended by Richardson/Hodges/Hides. With the proper pt., I have found it to be very effective in teaching stabilization and TrA activation. Teaching multifidus activation is more difficult.
