MAT Associate Degree

Muscle Activation Techniques(MAT) has partnered with Broadview University to offer an Associate of Applied Science MAT Specialist Degree Program. This 90 credit program can be completed in as few as 7 quarters - with full time enrollment.

The Associate Degree Program is offered online with exams at the MAT Headquarters in Colorado. Each 11 week MAT quarter concludes with an on-site exam prep and certification exam. All online coursework must be successfully completed to attend the exam prep and practical exam for certification.

Our MAT program curriculum is developed by industry professionals in order to equip you with in-demand skills. You will even participate in competency review, in person so you will have hands-on experience before you graduate. Below are just a handful of the courses will you take.

Course Descriptions

Students will be introduced to Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT®) for the lower body and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, as it relates to joint mobility. Students will evaluate range of motion in lower body movements and use the MAT® assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness with a focus on the lower extremities. Study includes applications of the Comparative Assessment Mobility Evaluation (CAM®) procedure to evaluate range of motion and identify biomechanical imbalances within the lower body. Students will also learn how to correlate range of motion limitations to potential muscle weakness by using the Active Muscle Contract and Sustain (AMC&S®) procedure on the lower body.

Students will evaluate range of motion in upper body movements and use the MAT® assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness with a focus on the shoulder girdle. Study includes applications of the Comparative Assessment Mobility Evaluation (CAM®) procedure to evaluate range of motion and identify biomechanical imbalances within the upper body. Further study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing using the Active Muscle Contract and Sustain (AMC&S®) procedure on the upper body to correlate range of motion limitations to potential muscle weakness. Palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics and reinforcement exercises are also studied.

In this course, students will study Muscle Activation Techniques® for the trunk and spine and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability as it relates to joint mobility. Students will learn to evaluate range of motion in movements of the trunk and spine and use the MAT® assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness in the trunk and spine. Study includes application of the Comparative Assessment Mobility Evaluation (CAM®) procedure to evaluate range of motion and identify biomechanical imbalances within the trunk and spine.

Students will investigate Muscle Activation Techniques® for the cervical spine and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability as it relates to joint mobility. Students will evaluate range of motion in movements of the cervical spine and use the MAT® assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness in the cervical spine. Study includes application of the Comparative Assessment Mobility Evaluation (CAM®) procedure to evaluate range of motion and identify biomechanical imbalances within the cervical spine. Further study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing using the Active Muscle Contract and Sustain (AMC&S®) procedure on the cervical spine to correlate range of motion limitations to potential muscle weakness. Students will learn to apply the Digital Force Application to Muscle Attachment Tissue (DFAMAT) process, along with corrective isometrics and reinforcement exercises.

Students will investigate Muscle Activation Techniques® for the hand and explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability as it relates to joint mobility. Students will evaluate range of motion in movements of the hand and foot. They will use the MAT® assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness in the hand and foot. Study includes application of the Comparative Assessment Mobility Evaluation (CAM®) procedure to evaluate range of motion and identify biomechanical imbalances within the hand and foot. Further study includes applications of isolated muscle strength testing using the Active Muscle Contract and Sustain (AMC&S®) procedure on the hand and foot to correlate range of motion limitations to potential muscle weakness. Students will also learn the applications to apply the Digital Force Application to Muscle Attachment Tissue (DFAMAT) process, along with corrective isometrics and reinforcement exercises
