The EFA Test Provides Accurate Diagnosis of Soft Tissue Injuries

Because MRIs, X-rays and CT scans are not designed to be dynamic or to assess muscle function, they cannot help with sprain and strain injuries. Emerge’s Electrodiagnostic Functional Assessment (EFA) Test is designed to objectively identify, locate, and diagnose the location, identify the nature, and diagnose the extent and age of soft tissue injuries. Our EFA Test also provides site-specific treatment recommendations to speed the recovery process.

The EFA Test is a new and valuable tool to be used in conjunction with, or as a complement to other diagnostic tests, including X-ray and MRI, giving you more information for a better diagnosis.  Our EFA Device is registered with the FDA as a Class II Medical Device for the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders.

“The Emerge program has allowed our clinic to provide a solution to diagnose soft muscle tissue injuries that has simply not existed before. Our physician now has a tool to identify a specific area injured and if needed, provide that information to a physical therapist who now knows exactly where to concentrate their efforts, thus providing a new level of care for our patients. This ability, combined with the Soft Tissue Management program to baseline employees, has definitely allowed our clients, the employer, to reduce loss time injuries, return employees to work much sooner, eliminate fraudulent claims and to therefore reduce workers compensation claims and overall costs.”

Five Tests in One

Emerge’s EFA Test is a noninvasive and non-loading diagnostic evaluation that combines five American Medical Association accepted tests into one comprehensive, objective and reproducible evaluation.

Our EFA Test includes 1) range of motion, 2) functional assessment, 3) pinch strength, 4) grip strength, and 5) electromyography (EMG).

For accurate diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue injuries of the back, neck, shoulder, and extremities, including repetitive strain injury, the EFA Test identifies the location and age of injury and determines if the patient is compliant, malingering, and/or in pain.

Easy to Implement for Better Care and Cost Savings

You can easily place and implement our EFA Test in an occupational health clinic setting. Emerge medical staff reviews post-loss tests and provides your clinic with a comprehensive report allowing targeted, site-specific treatment for better outcomes.

The objective information provided by Emerge’s EFA Test aids in accurate first-time diagnosis, avoids unnecessary or inappropriate surgeries and treatments, leads to swifter recovery times, and provides evidence to prevent fraudulent claims from tying up your resources.

Accurate Diagnosis Provides Proper Treatment and Speeds Recovery

“We have a progressive safety program. Since implementing the EFA into this program, we have taken our experience modification rate from a 1.26 to a 0.76.  My insurance company loves me. They have witnessed it helping other employees by accurately diagnosing the source of their injury, allowing them to get the proper treatment and return to post-injury status much quicker.”
