Track your performance like an Olympian. Use the latest in wearable sensor technology to measure your muscle activity and movement, the same way they do.

Running Gait Analysis in NYC

For you to win and remain in top shape, you’ll have to perform your best. Such a feat requires not only consistent training, but also gait analysis and optimization — brains to complement the brawn. The dorsaVi Movement Suite does just that.

Using wireless sensors that you can wear while you move, you can measure your movement and muscle activity to the dot. These are the same sensors used by Olympians and professional athletes to measure range of motion, acceleration, and muscle activity.

By recording data at 200 frames per second, the dorsaVi Movement Suite provides our team with visual, objective, easily interpreted data to assess your technique and movement for performance analysis and muscle re-education.

How does it work?

The dorsaVi Movement Suite is a tool used for gait analysis, which is the study of human motion, done by measuring body movements, body mechanics, and muscle activity. The dorsaVi Movement Suite uses sensors, which adhere to the skin using low irritant, disposable adhesive pads. It includes 2 types of sensors with tiny electronics built inside:

  • Movement sensors
  • Muscle Sensors (EMG)

The movement sensors capture and quantify how you bend, twist, and move. Their small size (about the size of a small USB stick) allows you to place them on different parts of your body to record different movements.

These sensors send the data wirelessly to a pager-sized Recording and Feedback Device (RFD) that talks to software on our computers. The system also allows you to videotape yourself so that you can see how your own movements impact the data in certain ways.

What can the dorsaVi Movement Suite measure?

The dorsaVi Movement Suite can be used to measure movement and muscle activity on different parts of your body, including the low back, knees, and hamstrings.  It can also be used to enhance technique or optimize performance in activities like running as well as various other sports.
