Eric has been a lead instructor for Functional Movement Systems since 2006. In addition to leading workshops for FMS around the world, he also serves as part of their education team, helping to develop course materials and concepts, as well as educational content.
What is Functional Movement Screening?
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) was created by world famous physical therapist Gray Cook as a means to evaluate an individual’s mobility, movement patterning, core stability and neuromuscular coordination. Consisting of seven basic tests, the screen correlates to movement patterns that occur during training, sports and everyday life. Impairment or imbalances in any one of these patterns can decrease an individual’s function and performance and significantly increase their risk of injury.
The Functional Movement SYSTEM
The FMS is part of a larger system, called the Functional Movement System, which consists of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), the Motor Control Screen (MCS), Fundamental Capacity Screen (FCS), Functional Breathing Screen (FBS) and its clinical counterparts, the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and the Y Balance Test (YBT). Together these assessment tools create a powerful algorithm that integrates a smooth transition from clinical care to training and performance and vice versa, while respecting each professional’s scope of practice. The FMS system is used throughout the US Military and across all professional sports.
FMS Education Services
Eric can organize FMS courses for your staff, as well as provide consulting on how to integrate the FMS system model into your clinic, training center or fitness facility. For more information email Eric.
Eric D’Agati and his team at ONE Human Performance have embraced and implemented a model that most rehabilitation and exercise professionals only read and hope to have. They have executed the Functional Movement System’s model at all levels of fitness, athletic performance and rehabilitation. In my lectures and publications, I have discussed their near-perfect execution of our model to other professional entities, in professional sports and the US Military. I consider Eric and his staff content experts on the subject of Functional Movement Screening and Assessment and encourage both professionals and consumers to consider them an expert resource in both exercise and rehabilitation. Here’s the bottom line — human performance is changing and you can see it first hand at ONE Human Performance.”— Gray Cook, MSPT, OCS, CSCS, RKC
