What is ViMove?
ViMove is a wireless sensor technology that objectively measures human movement and turns it into actionable data. This is achieved through the use of wearable motion and muscle activity sensors that record data at 200 frames per second. In doing so, ViMove provides visual, objective, easily interpreted data to improve patient assessments, prevent and manage injuries, and document therapy progress for patients, referring physicians and insurance companies. With the ability to assess the lower back, neck, knees, core, hamstrings and running styles, ViMove provides an assessment and rehabilitation solution that can be tailored specifically to the patient.
How long do you wear ViMove?
During in-clinic sessions you may be required to wear the ViMove system for up to 1 hour depending on the length of your consultation.
What should you wear during a ViMove Assessment?
When undergoing a ViMove assessment, comfortable clothing is preferred to ensure comfort and successful application of the ViMove sensors. Examples of comfortable clothing include gym shorts, tracksuit pants and training t-shirts. It is also recommended that you avoid wearing a belt or dress during your assessment. This is because the ViMove sensors need to be adhered in locations that would be otherwise obstructed by a belt or dress. If you are undertaking an out-of-clinic assessment, a pocket is also required to carry the recording and feedback device. It is important that the recording and feedback device be within 10 metres of your person at all times during an out-of-clinic assessment.
What else should you know prior to undertaking a ViMove Assessment?
During the sensor application process, your healthcare professional may need to remove hair in areas where the ViMove sensors will be applied. The most common areas where hair may need to be removed include the lower back (during a low back assessment) and legs (during a running, knee or hamstring assessment). Hair free skin improves the application of the sensors to your body, allowing the sensors to collect accurate data throughout the entire assessment.
Finally, it is advised that you refrain from using moisturiser on the day of your ViMove assessment. This is because moisturiser reduces the contact strength between the sensor and your skin and may result in the sensors falling off your body.
