What is EuMotus BodyWatch, and what does it do?


EuMotus BodyWatch is a makerless motion capture and analysis tool designed for the physical therapy clinic.
The clinician gets their patients to stand in front of the camera, and perform a few exercises. The clinician then uses objective movement data in AROM, (a)symmetry, and problematic movement patterns combined with video to double check their intuition with quantified evidence, and better engage their patient. Running a movement screen takes as little as two minutes, and is dependent on the number of exercises prescribed.




How do your customers currently use EuMotus BodyWatch?


Currently, our customers use EuMotus BodyWatch to enhance their assessment protocols and client experience. They use our technology’s data-driven methodology and intuitiveness to educate and easily communicate with their clients about their functional health, and engage and excite them throughout the treatment process.




How is your video footage better than 2-D video?


2D video footage is qualitative and cannot be used to accurately measure multiple body angles. Most 2D video systems require significant work to get any data out (e.g. manually identifying joints, drawing lines, etc). EuMotus BodyWatch automatically pinpoints accurate body movement data with little to no work required from you, thanks to our powerful 3D camera and algorithms. For an in-depth comparison, check out our 3D Markerless Motion Analysis CEU course.




What is the difference between motion capture and motion analysis?


Motion capture refers to the quantification of movement - knee flexion, shoulder ROM etc. Motion analysis immediately follows motion capture, and involves reviewing movement data, and extracting insights from a patient's movements. Tradtionally, a motion capture system requires a PhD in biomechanics, and multiple hours to process movement information. At EuMotus we've negated the need for complex equipment and training by minimizing the need for difficult setup and intense post-processing. EuMotus BodyWatch allows clinicians to analyze patients in as little as a couple of minutes. Motion analysis is now accessible for the clinical setting.




Why markerless motion capture?


Markerless motion capture strikes a balance between speed and accuracy. It is more accurate and reliable compared to unaided visual observation, and goniometry. Markerless motion capture scores well in accuracy compared to traditional motion capture systems, and takes less than half the time to operate. Markerless motion capture makes motion analysis finally accessible for the clinical setting.




Where is the evidence on accuracy, reliability, and validity?


You can read up on the evidence performed by third parties in peer-reviewed journals and white papers on the evidence page.




How many body joints do you track?


Up to 26 joints in real-time.




How many exercises do you support?


Currently 25 exercises. Here is a sampling of exercises.




What if the exercise I'd like to measure is not included in BodyWatch?


We have a free-run mode, where we record raw data, but do not perform any analysis.




What camera does EuMotus BodyWatch use?


Our 3D camera uses a specialized camera that combines RGB and infrared sensors to calculate and record the 3D coordinates of your client’s body joints in motion at 30 frames/second.




What does the software help analyze?


Using specialized algorithms driven by expert knowledge, BodyWatch automatically creates a concise movement analysis report, which includes measures of range of motion, stability, symmetry, and likely muscle imbalances. This report can be used to not only improve the assessment procedure but also track progress of recovery and performance over time.




Who is EuMotus BodyWatch for?


EuMotus BodyWatch is markerless motion analysis software designed to be used by physical therapists.




Is EuMotus BodyWatch portable?


Yes. You can take down and set up the system in a few minutes.





Subscription

How can I learn more before requesting a demo?


Check out our blog, and subscribe to our mailing list.




How can I request a demo?


To request a demo, contact us directly through our home page, or send a note directly to hello/at/eumotus.com. Our demos are performed remotely online.




What's included?


We provide all required hardware, software, training and ongoing customer support.




Why do you have a subscription model?


We believe a service model best aligns customer and EuMotus incentives. By incentivizing ongoing customer dialogue, we work together to make sure all of your needs are addressed. We continuously add value by updating the product through new features and exercises suggested by both customers and EuMotus.




Can I buy the product outright?


We provide our product through a subscription. We don't want this piece of equipment to gather dust after a one-time sale. The subscription aligns incentives by ensuring that the clinic, and clinicians receive value. If you find that it's not the right fit for your clinic, you can end your subscription at the end of your contract.




Do you offer a trial period?


Because of the hands-on nature of our training, we do not offer a trial period. We do, however, give all of our new customers unlimited training and support to ensure successful operations.





Benefits

What are the health benefits of motion analysis?


Improved health outcomes, longitudinal progress tracking, and demonstration of evidence-based practice.




What are the business benefits of motion analysis?


Our clients use our motion analysis tool for improved patient engagement and education. This leads to improved patient retention. Check out physical therapy patient retention calculator to dig into the return on investment numbers. Some clients use EuMotus BodyWatch to attract new patients and customers, offer new services, and differentiate their practice. Our phyiscal therapy marketing calculator helps evaluate ROI on attracting new patients through motion analysis services.




Does motion analysis matter to referring physicians?


The incorporation of motion analysis to your clinic's operations allows you to differentiate your clinic from competitors in the area. Unlike a piece of equipment (e.g. a treadmill etc.), incoporating motion analysis in your operations sends referring MDs a strong signal that your practice is commited to evidence based-care, in tracking, experiementing, and seeking optimal health outcomes, while balancing for cost efficient treatment. You can use motion analysis to send clinicians evidence demonstrating longitudinal patient progress.




How do patients react to motion analysis?


Our clients have found that patients of all ages from pediatrics, through weekend warriors, and geriatric patients react positively, and become more engaged in their treatment process.
