Athletics occurs in 3D - Assess your athlete’s motion using 3D technology!

Utilizing cutting-edge 3D sensor technology we can now measure athletic movement in the same way it occurs --- in 3 dimensions!

We know what abnormal movement patterns are and the risk they present to our athletes. We now have the ability to accurately measure these movements as well as providing a corrective program to eliminate or significantly reduce these “bad” motions.


Questions every Athlete, Coach and Parent need to ask:

Athletes and Coaches: Do you want to improve your athletic performance?

  • One of the best ways to increase performance is to improve how your body moves. DorsaVi 3D assessments provides accurate information on how you move. You then have the key to being able to change your motion.

Do you want to avoid injuries or are you frequently fighting small, repeated injuries as you train?

  • Frequent injuries are often caused by imbalances, tightness or weakness in your body. 3D DorsaVi assessments can identify these problems and provide the information to get you back to training and back to playing your sport.

Parents and Coaches: Are you worried about your athlete getting hurt? Do you want your child/athlete to be a faster, stronger, more complete athlete?

  • Poor movement patterns increase injury risk during athletics as they repeatedly perform these movements while training and competing. Improving the efficiency and stability of how an athlete moves can greatly reduce their risk of injury.
  • Athletes who move better will perform better; Efficient movements are better movements.

In order to “Fix” a problem, you need to know what the problem is! DorsaVi assessments can help you find the problems so they may then be fixed!


Featuring DorsaVi Professional Suite

Why use DorsaVi 3D technology assessments?

DorsaVi technology uses wireless wearable sensors and provides data to accurately assess, prevent and manage injuries and guide rehabilitation programs.

  • These assessments can provide crucial information for “Return to Sport” decisions for athletes recovering from injuries.
  • Analysis and reports are available for review immediately following the assessment.

Who can benefit from 3D movement analysis?


Provides metrics essential to maintaining healthy training and maximizing athletic performance

Endurance and Power Athletes

Analyzes movements of the entire lower kinetic chain crucial to reducing major injuries


Primary protection through baseline testing and movement-specific training programs

  • Baseline testing for individuals/clubs/teams -- Identify deficiencies EARLY
  • Identify and correct abnormal movement problems placing your athletes at risk
  • Correcting abnormal movement patterns will improve overall athletic performance and reduce risk of injury. Keep your players in the game!

You need to stay healthy to train; You must train consistently through long periods of time in order to achieve maximal performance potential. You cannot train when injured.


DorsaVi Performance Evaluations

Multiple assessment options/combinations

  • Athletic Movement Index (AMI) assessments
  • Running Module assessments
  • Knee Module assessments

1. Live Running and Strength Assessments

Running Module measures metrics every running athlete needs to know to remain symmetrical and healthy. Identify areas which are crucial to improving your running times. Small changes in running form can add up to new PR’s!

Knee Module measures functional movement patterns crucial to performing at your maximal level, as well as reducing risk or injury.

Run Monitoring monitors and analyzes a variety of metrics during longer, outside runs.

2. Athletic Movement Index Assessments

AMI assessments looks at the following areas: Overall quality of movement, symmetry of movement, speed of movement of the knee and loss of balance.

Once identified, these deficiencies can then be addressed to ultimately impact athletic performance and reduce injury risk.

3. Individual/ Small group/ Team testing & training

Focus of training: improve movement, maximize athletic performance and reduce risk of injury. Training is based on proven research-based principles designed to enhance athletic performance while reducing the risk of non-contact injuries.


My Mission

My mission is to use research proven principles of training and advanced 3D technology to assess abnormal movement patterns. Then, using the results gleaned from both 2D and 3D analyses, assist athletes in achieving their full performance potential in their respective sports.

HOW? By utilizing movement-specific programs designed to improve movement efficiency and reduce or eliminate abnormal movements which increase risk of injury. When abnormal movement is corrected, athletes move better, are less at-risk for many injuries and perform at higher levels!

Most athletes compete on one leg; However we train the majority of the time on two legs. Current research indicates to maximize athletic performance we need to train the athletes on single leg.
