Capital Area Physical Therapy and Wellness in Malta and Queensbury is offering Dorasvi, a revolutionary wearable sensory technology based out of Australia that is used by several professional sports organizations around the world like the New York Islanders and European Premier League Clubs.
Dorsavi technology includes small wireless sensors that contain an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a magnetometer to measure parts of human movement that are unseen to the human eye. The portable, motion-capture technology records data at 200 frames per second and gives the therapists a real-time biomechanical analysis to accurately assess, prevent, and manage injuries and guide rehabilitation.
“A runner can wear these sensors during a run, and we gain valuable information and metrics about the patient’s run that can help guide our treatment decision making”, said Andrew Gaetano, co-owner and doctor of physical therapy
“The data we gather can help us prevent injuries in runners and athletes. We’re bringing this cutting-edge technology used by professional sports teams to our local schools and booster clubs to keep local athletes in the game,” he said.
He said tests can typically be completed in minutes and patients get an easily readable print out of the results and how to interpret them.
