Active Edge MAT, LLC is a provider of health, wellness and sports performance enhancement here in Colorado Springs since 2006. Active Edge MAT utilizes Muscle Activation Techniques or, MAT, to evaluate the body's capability to function based upon physical demands placed on the body. When muscles are not functioning correctly, you may experience some of the following issues: Unstable movement, compensation, tightness, discomfort or even pain.

MAT is a non-medical process of assessment, improvement and maintenance of a muscle's contractile efficiency, (ability to contract on demand to create joint stability). The MAT process includes 4 essential components:

  1. CAM Comparative Assessment of Mobility
  2. AMC&S Active Muscle Contract and Sustain assessment
  3. PIC Positional Isoangular Contraction
  4. DFAMAT Direct Force Application to Muscle Attachment Tissue
Through these 4 components, MAT can restore or improve: Synovial joint and spinal range of motion, synovial joint and spinal stability, muscle contraction speed and force output, reduce joint mechanical wear, align joint contact surfaces.
