ROI Strategies

Clinics investing in Kinetisense experience more than improved patient outcomes; they discover diverse opportunities for Return on Investment (ROI). Whether operating on a cash or insurance-based model, clinics can leverage several successful ROI methods.

  1. Complimentary Posture Assessment: Conducted in the waiting area, attracting immediate patient interest.
  2. KAMS Assessment: Offered after presenting objective posture results, priced at an MSRP of $125, with a 20% compliance rate (20X ROI).
  3. Range of Motion (ROM) Assessments: Priced between $10 to $20 for specific joints, contributing additional revenue (40X ROI).
  4. Suite of Assessments (ROM, 3D Functional Module, Single-Leg Hop Test, 3D Balance Module): Adopts the “plus 10” method, adding extra revenue for each additional module.
  5. 3D Gait Geriatric Risk of Fall Assessment: Conducted twice yearly at $140, leading to substantial added revenue (56X ROI).

Considering the potential annual revenue, if a clinic purchases a $5000 Diamond license and serves 1000 patients, the breakdown unfolds as follows:

  • KAMS Assessment: Conducted four times a year at $125, generating an additional revenue of $100,000 (20X ROI).
  • ROM Assessment: Reassessed ten times a year at $20, resulting in $200,000 of additional revenue (40X ROI).
  • 3D Gait Geriatric Risk of Fall Assessment: Conducted twice yearly at $140, leading to $280,000 in added revenue (56X ROI).

Combining revenues from all Kinetisense assessments and “plus 10” modules, clinics serving just 1000 patients potentially generate around half a million in additional annual revenue. These calculations don’t encompass other revenue avenues, including community screening events, partnerships, diverse CPT codes, strategic bundling, mandatory integration, and more.

My priority is assisting clinics in seamlessly integrating our software into their workflow. Whether you’re a Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Orthopedic Specialist, Personal Trainer, Performance Coach, or in any profession benefiting from 3D markerless motion capture, I’m dedicated to guiding you through a customized integration approach.

The Launch of Corrective Engine and Patient App

At Kinetisense we are continuously enhancing our product by developing new features, which we are thrilled to share with you.

The Kinetisense team is pleased to announce the launch of The Corrective Engine, an advanced new feature that will automatically be added to your current license. This feature includes an extensive library of 1000 correctives, offering a range of options so you can address the unique needs of each individual client or patient. In order to access this new feature you will need to sign out of your Kinetisense account and then log back in. 

But that’s not all. We understand the importance of extending the benefits of this feature beyond your organization/clinic walls. Introducing our new End User Patient App! This application allows your patients to download the Patient App and perform the correctives suggested by you from the comfort of their homes, with access to instructional videos ensuring they execute each corrective properly and safely. This added convenience not only enhances the patient experience but also augments compliance as you are able to monitor their progress. 

Please see document below, along with the provided training video to assist you in integrating this new feature into your daily workflow.

FAQ

What is the ideal set-up for a Kinetisense Assessment?

iPad or Desktop Set-up

It is extremely important to have your device set up properly to ensure you are getting the most accurate results. First, make sure that you have a stable surface or supportive tool such as a tripod. The device should be stable throughout the duration of the assessment and should not be held in your hands when the assessment is being performed. Next, is to make sure that your camera/device is the appropriate height off of the ground. It should be approximately 3.5 – 4 feet off the ground. 

Environment Set-up

Lighting is also a crucial, yet often forgotten set-up component  when performing a Kinetisense assessment. Kinetisense functions in almost all settings, but will not work if the sensor is facing direct sunlight. Imagine if you were to try and take a photo facing the direct sunlight. Usually, the photo appears very white and unclear, and this is how the sensor would be impacted when using Kinetisense. This also includes bright LED lights that may be reflecting off a window or mirror. It is best to perform a Kinetisense assessment in front of a wall with no windows or mirrors behind the person being assessed. 

Patient/Client Positioning and Clothing

Patient/client positioning may differ based on different assessments. Information on this may be found in the user manual, tutorial videos on the Kinetisense website and under the “Tutorial” button located on the bottom right of your screen once you have selected the desired assessment.

This can provide you with a quick visual on how the individual should be positioned based on the selected assessment. For ROM, Posture, Functional, Balance, Single Leg Hop, KAMS, KAMS IL, Overhead Squat, Posture Angel, Reverse Lunge, Vertical Jump, 5x Sit to Stand and mCTSIB the patient should be 6 – 8 feet from the sensor without any objects obstructing the field of view.

For the Risk of Fall Gait and Timed Up and Go assessment, the patient should start approximately 15 -17 feet from the sensor. The patient should also always be at least 1 – 2 feet away from the wall, especially if their clothes do not contrast with the wall. We recommend that the patient/client wear tighter fitting clothing that contrasts the background, as loose fitting dark clothing can negatively affect the accuracy of the assessments. Hats, toques and glasses are recommended to be taken off and long hair should be pulled back as Kinetisense does track the ears and eyes. 

Implementing these best practices and optimal set-up tips will reduce user error and increase accuracy of assessment results.

How to analyze trend data

Kinetisense enables you to view trend data on assessments and patient progression over a period of time. This can show if treatment and or correctives are improving outcomes in an individual. The screenshot below shows the trend data captured inside of the balance assessment over a three day period.

To access this data, click the patient profile you would like to generate a report on. Once in the patient profile, click the Actions dropdown, then Reports. Select the assessment or workflow to generate trend data from the list.

After choosing an assessment, a screen with all of the assessments of that type, completed by the selected patient appears.

On the right hand side of the page you are able to see the date and time each assessment was conducted, and the total score achieved.

Select the checkboxes of the assessments you would like to include, or click the checkbox next to the patient’s name to select all assessments of this type to be included in the report.

Click Share PDF at the bottom right of the page to generate the report and save it in a convenient location.

The report generated outlines the Assessment History to show total score trends to determine the progress of the patient over time.
