What is ViPerform?
Uses discrete wireless sensor technology to objectively measure movement and muscle activity.
Easy to use software that provides concise reports to establish baseline movement data and accurately monitor
Offers 6 key functions:
Running Symmetry Test: Provides Ground Reaction Force and asymmetry index out on the field on different surfaces (such as grass, concrete, clay) and terrains.
Knee Stability Test: Objective valgus testing by examining and tracking knee stability through single leg squat and dynamic hop tests.
Lower Back & Postural Assessments: Series of tests designed to provide an objective measure of Range of Motion (ROM) for the lumbar spine and postures for up to 24 hours in the athlete’s day to day activities
Hamstring Test: Active and passive hamstring tests to provide data about hamstring behaviour at baseline & objectively assess rehabilitation status of hamstring muscle.
Functional Screening Assessment: For obtaining baseline movement data, customising training programs and provide markers for rehabilitation.
LIVE Training: Allow athletes and players to view their own movements in real time whilst wearing the sensors, improving proprioception, motor control and skill acquisition.
- Enhance decision making on return to play
- Help athletes athletes achieve & maintain peak performance
- Tailor training programs
- Reduce injury & guide rehabilitation
ViPerform consists of two wireless movement sensors (MDMs), two wireless electromyography (EMG) sensors (MDEs), Disposable Applicators (Daps), a Recording and Feedback Device (RFD) and the ViPerform software package.
The sensors can currently be placed on the following regions:
- Lower back for Lower Back & Postural Assessments, Functional Screening Assessment
- Tibia for Running Symmetry Test and Knee Stability Test
- Thighs for Hamstring Test
The sensors wirelessly transmit information to the RFD, which fits easily into the athlete’s pocket. The RFD transmits the data to the PC for viewing data live or stores the data for analysis at a later time. The RFD can also display movement on the RFD screen, provide alerts (for undesirable movements and postures) and reminders for prescribed exercises.
The powerful LIVE software package allows data from the sensors to be viewed on the computer in real-time. It also offers various modules for screening and assessment, optimising technique and rehabilitation. dorsaVi’s proprietary algorithms are also able to analyse the data and output results as a signal, number or a simple visual output such two moving dots to enable athletes to understand their relative position in real time. Easy-to-review reports are also automatically generated and help screen athletes and assess recovery following injury. Athletes’ data is stored into a database for review at any time.
