Functional Movement ScreeningThe FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

In addition to the equipment necessary for testing, a DVD is provided to show you a Functional Movement Screening and Corrective Exercise System that is designed to identify and attack limiting factors, allowing athletes to realize their potential.
