Kinetisense Connects with ART at Orlando Seminar!

The Kinetisense team recently had the pleasure of attending the ART (Active Release Technique) seminar in Orlando, Florida. It was a fantastic opportunity to connect with ART members and showcase the value our innovative motion-capture solution can bring to their patients and practices.

We enjoyed engaging discussions with therapists and hearing firsthand how Kinetisense can enhance their treatment plans by providing objective data on movement quality.

Heel Raise Module and Clinical Reasoning

We are thrilled to introduce our latest module, the Heel Raise feature, designed to dive deep into Achilles rehabilitation and injury risk assessment.

This innovative addition to our platform offers comprehensive insights into the Achilles tendon, providing valuable clinical reasoning for practitioners.

The Heel Raise test is a fundamental tool used to capture ankle plantar and dorsi flexion strength and endurance. It evaluates the combined action of the soleus and gastrocnemius muscles of the calf, essential for various functional movements. Originally employed to assess the function of the calf muscle-tendon complex, the Heel Raise test remains relevant today as a means to objectify treatment outcomes during initial assessments and throughout the rehabilitation process.

With the Heel Raise module, practitioners and trainers can now access detailed information on plantar flexion and dorsi flexion, enhancing their understanding of ankle biomechanics. This accessory information, though not directly related to scoring, offers valuable insights into overall lower limb function.

In the realm of clinical performance, the research literature commonly recommends 25 heel rises as the target norm for healthy subjects. However, it’s essential to note the variability in values suggested across studies and textbooks. Ranging from 7 to 48 heel rises, these variations underscore the complexity of assessing ankle strength and endurance and emphasize the importance of individualized care.

As we embrace the Heel Raise module, we invite you to explore its capabilities and integrate it into your practice. Whether you’re focused on rehabilitation, injury prevention, or performance optimization, this module offers valuable tools for enhancing patient care.

FAQ

Can I delete an assessment?

Yes and No:

Assessments cannot be permanently deleted, but they can be archived using the Archive Data Tool found in the Tools section of the menu. This feature allows practitioners to archive old clients or assessments to free up storage in the system. Archived clients and assessments can be restored later if needed. To archive assessments, follow these steps:

Steps to Archive Assessments:

  1. Access the Archive Data Tool:
    • Click “Menu.”
    • Select “Tools.”

  2. Archive Specific Patient Assessments:
    • Click the dropdown arrow beside the patient’s name.
    • Check the box(es) of the assessments you wish to archive.
    • Click the “Archive” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
    • Once an assessment is successfully archived, it will display [Archived] in yellow text beside it.

Note: If multiple assessments are being archived at once, this process might take some time. While assessments are archiving, you can continue using other functions within Kinetisense. Manually syncing the device before archiving can help with large archives. Archiving can also be done by selecting assessments within the patient profile and using the actions tab in the top right of the screen.

Alternative Method to Archive:

    • Select “Archive Data Tool.”
    • In the top right-hand corner of the screen, click the gear icon to access settings.
    • Check the box that says “Show Archived” to display all archived profiles and assessments.
    • Check the box beside the assessment you wish to unarchive.
    • Click “Unarchive” in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
    • Once completed, the assessment will no longer display [Archived] beside it.

Search Function:

What to Do When Clients Can’t Open Protocols from the End-User App

Steps to Follow When Clients Can’t Open Protocols from the App

1. Open the Client Profile in the Kinetisense App:

– Have clinicians log into the Kinetisense app and open the client profile for the individual to whom they wish to send corrective protocols.

– Ensure that the email in the client’s profile matches the email the client is using for the end-user app. To verify, select the client profile, click on “Information” at the top right, and check the email listed.

2. Verify and Update Email if Necessary:
– If the emails match, proceed to the next step. If they do not match, select “Actions” in the top right corner, choose “Edit,” and update the email to the correct one.

3. Resend or Send New Invitation:
– Once the emails match, return to the home page, scroll to the client’s profile, and look for a big green bar that says “Resend Invitation” or “Send Invitation.” Click this to send a new access code to the client’s email.

4. Client Uses the Access Code:
– When the client receives the access code in their email, instruct them to open the client app. Before signing in, they should select “I have an access code” at the bottom of the screen.

5. Enter the New Access Code:
– The client should use the new access code to enter the patient app. The corrective protocols will then be available.
