We believe the future of healthcare is built on a foundation of ‘precision measurement’. The problem for many professionals is the expense of precision measurement tools (like MRI and CT) and their lack of portability. Bodiometer solves this problem by putting a real-time motion capture tool in the pockets of professionals who depend on precision measurements to excel. Using Bodiometer Apps professionals can aim their iPhone or iPad cameras at a person and automatically capture their posture and body mechanics in a fraction of the time of the current solutions. This helps them to track people’s progress and outcomes digitally as well as educating them immediately.
Occupational Health and Safety
Economic burden of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) in Canada is estimated to be $22 Billion. Employers are required by law to take every reasonable precaution to protect workers from hazards, including those that may result in musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries. Bodiometer puts a real-time motion-capture tool in the pockets of ergonomists to point their iPhone or iPad at a person and track their posture in a few seconds. This reduces assessment time, increases precision and objectivity and enhances engagement and education. Bodiometer can change the game in the field of occupational health and safety by replacing the current subjective, anecdotal and inconsistent measurement tools with an objective, accurate and engaging mobile tool.
The human body is a wonder of engineering at every level and amazing humans continue to push the boundaries of what can be done. From a child's first steps to professional athletes on game day we rely on our biomechanical systems to perform. Our technology enables objective analysis of these systems and the critical relationships within and between them that must be maintained to promote activity and prevent injury. Our technology has the capacity to decode the body language of action so that we can finally hear what the body has been telling us all this time.
