When patients suffer an injury, one of the more challenging aspects of their recovery is determining when they are safe to return to sports, work or even the everyday demands of life. Because patients tend to favor their injured body part they are naturally more susceptible to injury. Finding tests and measures that accurately determine the amount of force or speed a patient is generating on their injured body part has presented challenges for physical therapists, until now.
To stay on the forefront of injury recovery and surgical rehabilitation, VTFC has integrated the use of the revolutionary dorsaVi technology. This system of wireless wearable sensors objectively measures exactly how you move. This state-of-the-art technology measures minuscule movements of the body that we cannot see by observation alone. Patients benefit from the feedback DorsaVi provides by allowing them to see if they are favoring their injured body part and gives them confidence that they are capable of returning to sports or exercise without the risk of reinjury.
Our team of physical therapists, athletic trainers and strength coaches utilize dorsaVi’s visual, objective, easily interpreted data to improve your assessments, choose and manage treatment options designed just for you and document your physical therapy progress.
With dorsaVi we can measure range, speed and direction of knee or back movement in two planes while performing high-speed tests such as vertical hop and squat. The dorsaVi provides physical therapists with valuable data that helps us guide your rehab program and put a plan together that helps you recover faster, decrease injury risk and improve your performance in your sport.
Exercising with dorsaVi assists physical therapists tailor a treatment plan to the patient’s specific needs and provides valuable data that safely predicts when a patient can return to sports and/or exercise.
