In the research article, Dr. Ruth P Chang and team assessed the validity of the dorsaVi sensors compared to the Vicon motion analysis system for measuring lumbar flexion during lifting. The sensors were applied to twelve participants (nine with and three without back pain) and the participants performed 5 symmetrical lifts and 20 asymmetrical lifts. The Vicon markers were applied to the outside of the dorsaVi sensors. Flexion of the lumbar spine was measured in all the lifts, and this study found clinically acceptable concurrent validity between the dorsaVi sensors and the gold standard Vicon measurement system.
Clinically we know that people with and without low back pain move differently; using the low-cost, small, accurate, and portable dorsaVi wearable sensors to objectively assess your patient is an excellent option for clinicians.
