» Introduction to the Modified FMS

Modified FMS
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) has delivered a better perspective on human movement for almost 20 years.  However, some circumstances indicate the FMS may not be appropriate for all populations.  We recognize the practical need for a screen that provides necessary feedback and information, yet is suitable for individuals who may not be ready for some of the movements due to physical limitations.  Those populations include the elderly, rehab patients or those transitioning from a sedentary lifestyle.

After studying vasts amounts of data and reviewing feedback from professionals, we have taken all of this information to develop a Modified FMS. 

The Modified FMS gives professionals the option to gauge movement ability in individuals who may warrant a less demanding movement screen.   However, we always recommend a full FMS for a comprehensive look at your client's movement patterns.
