Automated scanning and instant feedback
The movements in Posture Scan are chosen to capture the foundations of everyday human movement. The scan protocol is standardised to make the results comparable and the analysis reliable. Each movement should be ‘practiced’ along with the instruction video, and then record their performance during the subsequent repetitions.
1. Standing balance
Standing still for 10 seconds.
2. Side bending
Bending to each side without lifting the feet.
Squatting with the feet 15cm apart and pointing forwards, with the arms crossed.
4. Balance on right leg
Balancing on the right leg for 5 seconds.
5. Balance on left leg
Balancing on the left leg for 5 seconds.
6. Squat on right leg
Squatting on the right leg with arms crossed.
7. Squat on left leg
Squatting on the left leg with arms crossed.
Posture Scan also collects some metadata like gender, age, discomfort, history of falling and dominant side.
Before the scan routine starts, each candidate is asked they can independently balance or squat on one leg.
For people with difficulties balancing on one leg we have created an Easy Mode that is less demanding on balance and strength. The person can rest the heel of the non-weight bearing foot on the floor in front of them. Easy Mode is automatically triggered after three unsuccessful attempts at the standard movement.
A scan should be performed in tight, non-reflective clothing or underwear, in a quiet room without distractions. If the candidate wears loose clothing that changes the outline of the body (like a skirt, jacket or loose trousers), the results may be inaccurate. The software automatically checks the clothing for reflection, but we ask that the individual or supervisor ensures that the clothing is tight, and that long/tall hair is up in a bun BEHIND the head or under a tight cap.
Good data in means good data out!

Broadband internet connection
Qinematic Movement Lab is used by health providers to download 3D video from a library of scans in our secure cloud storage. The scan can be played back as though the client was there in person.
This virtual laboratory can be used to give feedback, detailed movement analysis, and to quickly generate electronic reports with objective measures. The movement lab creates unique opportunities for remote consultations, individualised service and big data insights.
Qinematic Note is a simple to use application that allows you to view a clients Summary report via a mobile device in the gym, or via any computer in the consultation room.
On demand access to individualised scans puts the Personal back into ‘Personal’ Training and customer service.
