How to Prepare for a Screening Event

Rapidly increase your ROI by hosting community screening events.

Don’t know how?

Here are a few simple steps that have proven to serve the community and generate more clients for your clinic. 

The most successful way to do this is to contact local club teams or schools to organize an event. To best prepare for a mass screening event, advertise and make strong connections with community coaches, parents and players. Educate coaches and parents on the importance of screening, reducing injury and knowing when athletes can return to play. Scour the Vault for resources to share with your local community members. 

Outline target groups such as sport specific assessments: 

Hockey and Football

KAMS & Concussion Baseline Assessments

Basketball and Soccer

KAMS & Single Leg Hop

Productive screening events focus on efficiency.

How Pregnancy Affects Posture

Approximately 50% of women report low back pain during pregnancy.  Relaxin is a hormone released during pregnancy and its main role is to relax your ligaments and muscles making them more flexible. The purpose of this hormone is to prepare the lining of your uterus for implantation, help grow the placenta, prevent early contraction, relax ligaments to prepare the uterus to expand to accommodate the pregnancy which makes abdominal muscles more flexible. Additionally, relaxin plays a very important role to allow the pelvis to widen for the birth of the baby. This hormone also affects the laxity of all other ligaments in the body making them flexible. Unfortunately, this affects the sacroiliac joint and knee joints significantly resulting in high reports of pain. Additionally, as time continues, the lumbar curve may flatten, potentially causing issues post pregnancy.  

Assessing posture, balance and gait during this time can help objectively identify when these changes occur to communicate with the patient on the importance of treatment. 

Using Kinetisense’s posture module there is the ability to monitor a new mothers posture and for the duration of the pregnancy to objectively monitor changes in 3D. Monitoring the new mother after birth is also vital to ensure she is on the right track to strengthen and stabilize specific joints. 

It is also recommended to monitor a new mothers gait and range of motion (ROM) for the duration of the pregnancy to monitor any back and neck pain differences. Considering the weight distribution moving more anteriorly due to the baby bump in the third trimester, to post labour, there are many changes. As the weight is removed and the baby is birthed the new mother should return to baseline ROM and gait, but should be monitored continuously. 

Generally speaking, monitoring these changes with objective 3D assessments pre, during and post pregnancy will help prevent further pain and discomfort. Additionally, looking back at these assessments, will help guide future treatment plans.

How to Adjust Timed Assessments?

There are two new features available in the system. The first new feature allows users to adjust the countdown for timed assessments. The other feature allows users to adjust the assessment duration.

In order to access these features, click into any timed assessment such as Balance, mCTSIB, Timed Up & Go, or 5xSTS. In the top right corner of the screen, there is a gear icon that allows for the assessment time and countdown to be adjusted. Both the countdown timer and assessment duration can be changed with this gear dial.

What Other Range of Motion (ROM) Assessment Features are Available in Kinetisense?


In the ROM assessment screen, users have the option to click on the history icon. This will display previous completed assessments. These assessments are organized by body region. 

As an example, when viewing a neck ROM assessment, all neck movements that Kinetisense offers will be available to preview. This tool provides a way to quickly compare previous assessments.


In any Kinetisense assessment, the “Pain” button can be selected. If the participant experiences pain at any point while performing a movement, this button can be clicked on by the user. When pain is captured, the score drops to 0%. This is because movement that is painful is not considered functional.

As an example, if the participant communicates to the user that they felt pain during a ROM assessment, the user will select the pain button and the system will automatically identify the point (in degrees) at which pain was felt. Upon completion of the assessment, the visual analogue scale (VAS) and type of pain can be adjusted. This tool can help practitioners track patient progress over time.

Capturing a Movement Multiple Times 

With Kinetisense, a specific movement can be performed more than once during a single assessment. For example, shoulder abduction can be performed three times in one assessment. The greatest degree of range of motion attained will be saved in the report. This applies to multiple modules such as Single Leg Hop, Vertical Jump, ROM, Overhead Squat, and Reverse Lunge. This feature can also be used as a way to assess fatigue.

The Role of Posture in Enhancing Golf Performance

Welcome to our comprehensive five-part series aimed at unraveling the strategic employment of Kinetisense within a clinical context for golfers. Each month, we’ll dive into diverse topics that you can readily apply in your clinic to enhance golfers’ performance.

Undoubtedly, the significance of posture within the realm of the golf swing cannot be overstated. Why is posture pivotal, and how does Kinetisense come into play?

  1. Alignment and Balance: Proper posture supports a balanced and stable stance, serving as the cornerstone for consistent and accurate swings. Maintaining equilibrium throughout the swing empowers golfers to govern the trajectory of the club and the direction of the ball with finesse.
  1. Power Generation: Efficient posture serves as the conduit for generating significant  power and speed that characterize a remarkable golf swing. A well-aligned posture facilitates seamless bodily movement and the transmission of kinetic energy from the ground, via the legs, hips, and torso, culminating in a forceful and meticulously controlled swing.
  1. Consistency: The hallmark of golfing excellence lies in unwavering consistency, and in this realm, posture reigns supreme. By adhering to a uniform posture setup before each swing, muscle memory is cultivated, laying the foundation for a replicable swing motion.
  1. Swing Plane and Injury Prevention: Among the many dividends of proper posture is its role in establishing the optimal swing plane—the trajectory traced by the clubhead during the swing. A steady swing plane is intrinsically linked to improved ball-striking accuracy. Simultaneously, maintaining a neutral spine and balanced posture during the swing is extremely important to safeguarding the body from strain and potential injuries.

Leveraging the posture assessment feature within Kinetisense holds remarkable potential for therapists and coaches working with golfers. By incorporating this tool into your clinic or gym sessions, you can gain invaluable insights into areas that demand improvement. The foundation of improvement often begins with posture, as refining this aspect yields substantial returns in terms of overall performance enhancement.

In the dynamic world of golf, where precision and consistency reign supreme, understanding and optimizing posture can be a game-changer. With the guidance of Kinetisense and the expertise of dedicated professionals, golfers can unlock their true potential and elevate their performance on the course

Stay tuned for the next installment in our series, as we continue to explore how technology and expertise intersect to create golfing excellence.
