Objectives:
By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to understand the benefits of new technology in the workforce for the following:
■ DorsaVi – DorsaVi uses revolutionary wireless wearable sensors to measure exactly how you move to assess weakness, tightness, and movement patterns that hinder peak performance and lead to potential injury.

 

■ K-Vest - K-Vest gives us an objective measurement of how efficient an athlete is by measuring their kinetic sequence. The kinetic sequence measures the athlete's ability to transfer force from one segment of the body to the next. This efficient transfer of force is essential to decrease the risk for injury and optimize performance.

 

■ BodiTrak - BODITRAK is a leading-edge sports technology company, focused on the interaction between an athlete and the ground.

 

■ Aspen – A review of current concepts of spinal bracing to treat nonspecific low back pain. Therapeutic
bracing is an often underutilized tool in the management of low back pain and associated disability
