Clifton Hill Physiotherapy is at the forefront of new technology and we have embraced ViMove technology, developed by DorsaVi. ViMove is a new cutting edge clinical technology that uses wireless sensor technology to accurately and objectively measure movement and muscle activity of your lower back and legs. ViMove allows us to accurately and objectively identify why your injury occurred in the first place, giving us a better understanding of the unique features of your movements and postures that may be contributing to your injuries or pain (including low back, leg, hip pain and running issues). Using this device we can help you manage a range of issues including back and knee pain as well as running related injuries. Furthermore this device allows us to assess running styles and body movement in order to enhance technique and performance for a range of athletes.
ViMove effectively removes the guesswork from clinical assessments, and allows physiotherapists to obtain a better understanding of the unique features of your movements and postures that may be contributing to your pain.
Discrete, easy to fit sensors are placed on the back and record the body’s movement both in and away from the clinic. This information can then be used to promote positive movement patterns and posture empowering you to manage and reduce your low back pain. The sensors can also be used for real time feedback and training of better movement patterns.
We are also using ViMove as part of ongoing research at Clifton Hill Physiotherapy, with Sallie Cowan recently presenting the results of her study using ViMove to investigate core control in people with and without Patellofemoral Pain at the recent European Congress of Science and Sport. Alison Harding and Josh Heerey have recently presented research using ViMove at the Australian Physiotherapy Conference in Queensland.
