Computer-Aided Mobility Assessment

Patented portable digital mobility health assessment to identify and prevent injuries.

What you don’t know CAN hurt you…

Slide-71-2-2048x2048

50% of American adults and adolescents suffer from musculoskeletal (mobility) conditions that are linked to depression and increase the risk of developing other chronic heath conditions.

-World Health Organization

Leading Disability Cause

Musculoskeletal conditions significantly limit mobility and dexterity, leading to early retirement from work, reduced accumulated wealth and reduced ability to participate in social roles.
