The latest in wearable sensor technology is now available at PROmotion to prevent and manage your injuries. It’s called ViMove and it uses revolutionary wireless wearable sensors to objectively measure exactly how you move.
Pain, aches and injuries keep you away from what you want to do. We want to keep you safe, optimise your performance and help you recover faster. To do that, we need to tailor a treatment plan that's unique to you. Now we have a great tool that does exactly that. These are the same sensors that elite sports trainers are using with Olympians and professional athletes to prevent and manage injuries and guide recovery and return to play. By recording data at 200 frames per second, ViMove provides our physio's with visual, objective, easily interpreted data to improve your assessments, choose and manage treatment options designed just for you, and document your therapy progress.
What the ViMove can do?
This kind of data has only previously been available in expensive and sophisticated bio- mechanics labs. Now we can offer these tests to everyone. ViMove can be used to do quick in-clinic assessments as well as providing immediate feedback for movement retraining. In addition, unlike a biomechanics lab, ViMove also lets us monitor your movements outside as well as inside the clinic.
How Does it work?
ViMove sensors adhere to the skin using low irritant, disposable adhesive pads. The movement sensors are about the size of a small USB stick and are placed on different parts of your body to record different movements to capture and quantify how you bend, twist, and move. The ViMove system turns that data into easily interpreted graphs and data for our physio's to better assess your strengths and weaknesses.
What can ViMove Measure?
We can use ViMove to monitor your low back as you do specific movements as well as when you go about your normal day. The system can also be programmed to provide alerts when you move in a way that our team believes will be painful to you either now or in the future.
With the ViMove we can also monitor you if you go for a run outside on any surface in any environment. We can tell you how you’re performing when you’re fresh or fatigued. Are you favouring one leg or the other? How you land on one foot vs. the other. Objective information no matter what you do.
