Users of Qinematic software as a service
The Qinematic service is provided by a health professional or ‘Health Provider’ and consumed by an end-user who is interested in the status of their physical health, called the Health Seeker. Qinematic does not perform scans directly, other than for demonstration purposes or research and development.
An Organisation (sometimes called ‘Organisational Unit’ or ‘Service Provider’ as a company) is the legal entity that has a license to use Qinematic services. The Administrator of the Organisation is responsible for deciding what services the Organisation wishes to offer, and who has access rights within the Organisation using the service. Health Providers within the Organisation can subscribe to 3 levels of access and several actions according to the table below. Access as a Scanner, Advisor or Analyst influences the fee charged for access (examples only). Each Organisation has its own dedicated secure cloud library where scans and access are managed using secure authentication.

Health Service scenarios
Organisation A is a health centre that has physical therapists and personal trainers. They scan clients at their facility, as well as at outside workplaces. The Administrator has decided to make all physical therapists ‘Analysts’ who have access to the 3D scan library through Movement Lab. The Administrator makes all personal trainers ‘Advisors’ so they can have access to the Summary report library through the Note Web App. The Administrator makes the reception staff ‘Scanners’, so they have permission to log in and start Posture Scan each day. Scanners do not have access to the scan library. No external people are authorised to log in to any software or to access the library.
Organisation B is a retail wellness company. They sell health and wellness products and provide a scan as an added value to help customers personalise their decisions. An external consultant is made an Analyst at the Organisation and is authorised to view scans in their library via Movement Lab, so that he/she can give advice to a customer. The retailer does not do any analysis themselves, but they are in control of the library.
Organisation C is a fitness provider for teams and individuals. They scan their members regularly to help track progress and prevent injury. The trainers become Advisors at the organisation and can review scan results using the Note Web App. Every couple of months, they use external providers such as physical therapists or sports scientists, who are made Analysts for the months they are active at the club. They can playback the 3D video in Movement Lab while at the club, or remotely when a supervised team is travelling.
Provider A is an external consultant giving advice to Organisations that use Posture Scan and have their own in-house dedicated scan library. Provider A does not have Posture Scan, only Movement Lab. Each Organisation can grant Provider A access to their in-house library for any monthly period. The libraries are always separate, and their respective Administrators control access. With their permission only, the authorised Provider can access scans from them independently (library of Organisation A, B or C).
End-user minimum requirements
The end user (Health Seeker) must:
be able to function independently in standing position for up to 10 minutes.
be able to follow video, audio and written instructions.
have all four limbs, with reasonable function so the system can track their body.
be able to stand in the anatomical position, as well as voluntarily cross their arms across the belly to comply with the standardisation.
be able to gently nod their head or speak out loud to trigger the recording.
be prepared to remove, modify or change their clothing to optimise the scan quality.
The Health Seeker should have access to supervision as required and have permission to terminate a test at any time.
Any activity involves an element of risk of injury. The Health Seeker takes full responsibility for participating in the scan activity and for performing any tasks during this process.
The Provider is required to ensure a safe environment and provide suitable supervision according to the needs of the person being tested. The scan function is intended to be automated, however, it the responsibility of the Health Provider and/or the Organisation to ensure the scan is suitable for the individual being scanned.
Qinematic takes no responsibility whatsoever for the interpretation of the results by the Seeker or the Provider.
Qinematic takes no responsibility whatsoever for the knowledge or skill of the Provider, nor any responsibility whatsoever for any recommendations adopted by the Seeker.
