Musculoskeletal disorders are a collective term for injuries related to the human musculoskeletal system. It is the disorder that bothers the most people, is most costly, and is constantly increasing. Early detection of unfortunate movement patterns and systematic implementation of preventive exercises have a high potential to improve the situation. However, there is no precise and cost-effective technology for conducting a motion analysis today. As an effect of this, motion analyses are often neglected.
In recent years, the camera quality of modern mobile phones has experienced a drastic improvement. Apiir develop a technology that can use video from a modern mobile phone to do a motion analysis. Machine vision and artificial intelligence will quantify angles and movements in joints. The data is then analyzed on the basis of knowledge from movement science in a cloud-based software. The finished analysis will then be available on the user's page. The user will gain insight into their health and get constructive feedback on how to improve the status quo.
The use of mobile phone cameras for carrying out movement analysis facilitates that more people can easily gain deep insight into their own physical health and implement health-promoting measures. In addition, the solution will be very cost-effective, mobile, and scalable compared to the current solutions. This facilitates completely new application areas so that more people can gain qualitative insight into their own health and live longer active lives.
