This is your article correct? http://www.jospt.org/issues/articleID.1303,type.2/article_detail.asp

Are you using RUSI on a regular basis and do you believe RUSI will become an additional 'tool' that will be used in everyday practice?

How many of you (i.e., Rehabedge World) are using this already?

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.

Has anyone seen any studies documenting the reliability of palpating the multifidi?  Specifically the ability to palpate a decrease vs an increase in activity in this area? 

I understand this is a commonly accepted practice, but I haven't seen any data supporting its use.  I will do a search myself.

I agree with the above post, one day the technology will be more affordable and not subject to a capital budget, which usually slows down the ordering process for such equipment.
