The Assessment-Driven Clinic – Increased Clinical Revenue with Kinetisense

As clinicians and clinic owners, we are constantly thinking of ways that we can better our clinics, improve patient care, and grow our businesses.  We sometimes spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on new treatment technologies, marketing agencies, and anything that we feel will give our clinic an “edge” in a sometimes saturated clinical world.

There is currently a clinical paradigm shift that is occurring, a shift of perspective from concentrating on the “treatment-based approach” to an “assessment-based approach”.  We now have advanced motion capture assessment tools like Kinetisense that are replacing the archaic hand tools that we have become accustomed to.  With Kinetisense, we now have a biomechanics lab at our fingertips.


Increase in Yearly Clinical Revenue

“Most Kinetisense clinicians have seen upwards of a 40% increase in yearly clinical revenue by adding the Kinetisense system to their practice.”

Not only does Kinetisense vastly improve the quality, objectivity, and efficiency of our daily clinical workflow, it also has the inadvertent benefit of being a tool that can be used for clinical marketing and growth. Many Kinetisense practitioners have discovered how an assessment tool can be used to attract new patients, retain patients, drive “passive” clinical revenue, and differentiate the clinic and clinician in their community from the rest.

Kinetisense is an advanced assessment tool that will enhance all aspects of your clinic and turn you into an advanced movement scientist.

Adjust Frame Rates for Modules with Quick Movements

Modules such as Vertical Jump, Functional and Single Leg Hop are great for capturing more data. This can be done by clicking on the Settings Icon on the left-hand side of the Kinetisense Application main screen as shown below:

The lower frame rates (15,30) will have a better picture and resolution quality than the higher frame rates (60,90). If the user is looking to do faster movements, it is recommended that the frame rate be changed to 90@640×720.

How Will Kinetisense Help my Clinic or Training Facility?

Kinetisense can help your practice in a number of ways:

  1. It increases the speed and reliability of assessments.
  2. Many conditions are assessed without sending patients or clients out for x-rays.
  3. Real-time biofeedback results in better patient engagement and results.
  4. It makes it easy to show the difference you make, which results in better retention and more referrals.
  5. Movement training through real-time biofeedback.
  6. Attraction of new patients and clients.
  7. Helps retain current patients and clients.
  8. New billables and increased income.
  9. Increase referrals through the Kinetisense Ecosystem of movement practitioners and trainers.

The Importance of Windows Updates

1. Protect Your System From Malicious Software

Security issues are regularly identified in various parts of the Windows operating system, including ActiveX, Internet Explorer, .NET Framework, or the main platform. Even if you do not run the respective software, it is a risk not to patch it, simply because it is installed on your system. Note that these updates are required, even if you are running anti-malware or anti-virus software, as that software may not sufficiently protect you from Windows security issues.

Potential consequences of not installing security updates are damaged software, loss of data, or identity theft. Every year, malware causes damage of millions of dollars worldwide. The main reason is that users don’t install critical software or Windows updates, allowing malware to exploit loopholes that have long been patched. Vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited within hours of them becoming publicly known. So once a security update is available, you should immediately install the fix to protect your system from malware attacks.

2. Resolve General Windows Issues and Bugs

The second type of update addresses more general bugs and issues of the Windows operating system. These updates typically contain several fixes in one go. While these non critical errors are not responsible for security-relevant vulnerabilities, they may still be very annoying as they potentially impact the performance and stability of Windows. So the main reason for installing general updates is to avoid or resolve Windows issues and hopefully have a smooth and pleasant Windows user experience.

3. Access New Windows & Software Features

Finally, Windows updates often introduce new features, while also fixing some known issues. A good example is Internet Explorer. Even if you don’t plan on using the respective software, you should still run these updates, considering they often come with significant improvements and you may end up being forced to use the software after all. Moreover, Microsoft will eventually cease support for outdated software, e.g. old versions of Internet Explorer. This means that if new vulnerabilities are discovered, they will not be patched, as users are expected to run the latest version of the program.

It is critical to install Windows security updates to protect your computer from malicious attacks. In the long run, it is also important to install software updates, not only to access new features, but also to be on the safe side in terms of security loop holes being discovered in outdated programs. And it is in your own best interest to install all other updates, which may potentially cause your system to be buggy.

I recommend to download Windows updates automatically, but choose whether and when to install them. Do, however, make an effort to install them as soon as possible. Rebooting really isn’t that bad!


GAIT Risk of Fall Release

Kinetisense is a patented and university-validated markerless motion capture system that analyzes human movement in all 3 planes (frontal, sagittal, and transverse). The proprietary “Kinetisense Mocap” engine removes outlier data in real time and has been validated to have similar accuracy to the university-grade Vicon system.

The Kinetisense Risk of Fall module analyzes key variables of GAIT and provides immediate and valuable insights into the individual’s fall risk. The system provides advanced reporting on the improvements and/or regressions in GAIT parameters.

With Kinetisense Technology, the subjective way of assessing and analyzing GAIT is a thing of the past.

The Kinetisense system allows for health care providers to quickly identify biomechanical risk factors associated with falls, and initiate the ideal interventional training program in a timely manner.

  • Three Planes of Motion
  • Accurate 3D motion capture
  • Real-time Biofeedback

Our reporting provides detailed information about a patient’s gait, thereby allowing a physical therapist or clinician to make a much more accurate diagnosis.

  • Risk of Fall Score
  • Trend Data
  • GAIT parameters
  • Overall Frontal Plane Compensatory Patterns
  • Overall Center of Mass Tracking

Assess with Confidence. Show the difference. Change the Future.
