Edinburgh-based sports therapy clinic introduces advanced 3D motion tracking system to detect concussion

The Edinburgh-based sports therapy clinic Move Freely Sports Therapy + Performance has recently announced the introduction of the cutting edge 3D motion tracking software Kinetisense.

Kinetisense is an objective 3D Functional Movement analysis tool that provides bio-feedback in seconds. Using a computer and camera, the system analyzes and records your movement patterns as you move in real time.

A key feature of Kinetisense is its Baselining system that serves as a means of efficiently acquiring baseline posture and sway data that can be compared with analysis of a potentially concussed individual. Concussions occur in all sports with the highest incidence in American football, hockey, rugby, soccer and basketball. Undiagnosed concussions can have a severe impact on one's health and physical wellbeing.

Once an individual goes through the Kinetisense Baseline test, a unique personal record of their movement patterns and postural sway is created. Subsequently, if the individual suspects that they have been concussed, they go through the same test and any differences in their results are analyzed and treated by Move Freely's sports therapist Daniel Cassells.

Currently, Move Freely Sports Therapy + Performance is the only clinic in Scotland working with this cutting edge system.
