Wearable sensors enable a data-driven approach
The AMI gives our clinicians actionable data that is applied to the plan of care.
Davis PTSR has implemented DorsaVi wireless sensor technology into our treatment and training of athletes and patients. DorsaVi’s Athletic Movement Index, or AMI, is a test used to establish a baseline ability, assess risk of injury and guide the plan of care to return to sport or daily activities.
The AMI collects information on how a patient moves with accurate, objective data. Testing involves low planks, body weight squats, side planks, single leg squats, single leg hops, single leg hop plants, and ankle lunges. Following the test, all data is put into an algorithm which calculates an overall score for the athlete. This score considers the patient’s total loss of balance, history of injury, specific sport, limb symmetry, and movement score. The patient will ultimately be ranked either low, mild, moderate or high risk for injury when returning to their sport.
AMI assesses upper and lower extremity strength, core strength and stability, flexibility, symmetry, and balance. A copy of the assessment results will be given to the patient and reviewed with one of our skilled therapists.
Pairing this technology with Davis PTSR’s skilled physical therapists’ ability to accurately analyze the data and make recommendations leads to faster and more effective recovery in rehab or a safer return to sport while preventing future injury.
