No guesswork here! We use cutting edge VALD technology to obtain accurate measurements that inform our diagnosis & management process.
At Kinetic, we have invested heavily in VALD equipment. This enables us to use the most accurate methods to test, assess and monitor your progress. ForceDecks and the DynaMo provide our clinicians with data that allows us to prescribe appropriate training and rehabilitation programs. We know this will help to ensure we provide effective results and outcomes.
VALD are world leaders in producing equipment to analyse human movement through the development of accessible, laboratory-grade systems. Their company philosophy is ‘If you can measure it, you can improve it.’
VALD has foundations in elite sport. Their systems have been implemented in over 1,000 professional teams and organisations throughout the world of sport. Previously this type of equipment was only used in professional sports settings and in sports science laboratories. At Kinetic, we are able to provide access to this equipment for both the general public and professional athletes.
ForceDecks are a set of wireless dual force platforms that capture real time data. They use a range of tests to analyse balance, strength and movement strategies. These tests include: jumping, squatting, landing, pushing, pulling and more. This data allows our practitioners to determine when you are fully rehabilitated. Thus accurately indicating when you are ready to return to your chosen activity or sport.
The DynaMo is a handheld strength and range of movement measuring device. It can accurately assess and test areas relevant to your injury. Thus allowing our clinicians to seamlessly track the results of your progress over time.
The ForceDecks allow the efficient collection of real time data from an entire squad of athletes. Thus providing the ability to gain an insight into baseline strength and power levels. Over time, you can track trends in an athlete’s performance. Therefore allowing coaches the ability to make an informed decision about the effectiveness of an athletes training program.
We would also be able to offer position specific analysis if this was a specific requirement (ie neck strength measurements in front row forwards in rugby).
