DorsaVi Lumbar Assessment

Central Physio Bayswater is always looking for ways to improve our assessments, rehabilitation and recovery for low back pain. We see a lot of promising technology, and we work hard to find what’s been clinically validated and what actually works for you.

We’re now integrating a new technology called ViMove into our assessments to help patients work through lumbopelvic issues and injuries.

ViMove uses wireless wearable sensors to provide objective data to accurately assess, prevent and manage injuries and guide rehabilitation. There are two types of sensors: movement sensors and muscle activity sensors. The sensors record data at 200 frames per second. We will take you through a series of lumbopelvic exercises and movements and the sensors objectively and precisely record movement. The data is instantly displayed in easy-to-read reports with clinical insights.

ViMove has assessment modules for low back, knee, hamstring, neck, running and functional testing. (Lumbar is only currently available). There are also interactive “Movement Challenges” for low back pain to help retrain you on how to move better. We can also monitor you outside the clinic for up to 24 hours.

You can read more about ViMove at There is also a very interesting randomized controlled trial that was just published about ViMove. The main findings that caught our attention were that patients treated with ViMove were more than 3X more likely to have clinically important reduction in pain (>30% vs. baseline) and 2.5X more likely to have clinically important (>30% vs. baseline) improvements in functional movement vs. patients receiving standard of care treatment.
