DorsaVi for Back Pain
Phytness is committed to helping you effectively manage your low back pain. We understand that each person’s back pain is as unique as their fingerprint and have therefore embraced this new technology, ViMove. With this we can help you manage your low back pain through understanding of your own movements, postures and muscle activity.
ViMove, developed by dorsaVi, uses wireless sensor technology to accurately and objectively measure movement and muscle activity of the lower back. This effectively removes the guesswork from clinical assessments, and allows our clinicians to obtain a better understanding of the unique features of your movements and postures that may be contributing to your back 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.
