Hannah Davis and her students ran an amazing CE session today at WROTSS 2023.
In this session, Hannah presented the importance of posture in occupational therapy and reviewed different methods to teach postural analysis skills.
She also discussed how to use a high-tech method (i.e. Bodiometer) in clinical practice for reimbursement. We are humbled to be selected as the technology of choice for this hands-on training.

A mannequin is an inanimate and completely motionless creature that can be the ideal participant for evaluating the validity and reliability of Bodiometer posture screening apps.
In the first phase of our current research project at the University of Calgary to evaluate the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of Bodiometer, we repeat the tests many times while we are sure that the mannequin does not move at all.
For calculating the inter-rater reliability of Bodiometer, 5 different raters evaluate the posture. Raters do posture screening in their normal comfortable position with iPad and iPhone in their hands.
For evaluating the intra-rater reliability, each rater repeats each measurement three times, 3 minutes apart.
Although a mannequin is not an actual participant in evaluating our app's validity and reliability, utilizing it in the first phase of this research provides insights that Bodiometer apps are valid and reliable for an utterly motionless participant. However, it is necessary to test Bodiometer apps on humans as the actual users of Bodiometer, which will be implemented in the next phase of this research project.

We are excited about a new research project that has been started this year at the University of Calgary to validate Reliability and Validity of Bodiometer’s Postural Assessment App. Here is the set-up for the first phase of this research project at the Human Performance Lab to assess validity and reliability of Bodiometer on an utterly motionless participant (a mannequin). During this phase, the research team compares the postural scores obtained from the Motion Capture system (gold standard) and scores obtained from Bodiometer, to determine the validity of Bodiometer. To evaluate the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of Bodiometer, the test is repeated by different raters and at different times. Stay tuned for more updates on the early outcomes of the first phase of this research.

Fall prevention is one of the most critical issues related to older adults' health. Although it is not possible to prevent falls completely, exercises focusing on balance and muscle strength can reduce the risk of falling.
The suggested exercises are intended for older adults with a low risk of falls who can stand and walk independently without any support from others.
It is recommended that older adults do these exercises in the presence of a caregiver, close to a wall or chair and in a safe environment.
Always ask your therapist before starting new exercises, especially if you have weak balance.

Older age is characterized by several complex health states, such as neurological diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, neck and back pain and osteoarthritis, generally called geriatric syndromes. These geriatric syndromes may lead to improper posture and balance, which are the primary reason for falls among older adults.
Posture, gait and balance evaluation by Bodiometer helps geriatrics to be aware of their current posture and balance. They can track their progress in improving posture and balance during the treatment process and plan appropriately for the next step of training and prevent falls.

Weakness and shortness of stabilizer muscles are primary causes of musculoskeletal disorders.
Abdominal obesity, core body muscles' weakness and lumbar stabilizer muscles' shortness cause instability in the lumbar posture, resulting in hyperlordosis.
Two groups of exercises are suggested for preventing and correcting hyperlordosis:
- Low back stretching exercises
- Abdominal muscle strengthening exercises
Regular postural screening using Bodiometer Home App helps individuals to be aware of their alignment. Bodiometer Pro App also helps trainers and therapists to update their corrective exercise programs based on postural progress resulted from these exercises.

.

One of the common causes of low back pain is incorrect posture and a variety of musculoskeletal disorders caused by it e.g. hyper lordosis.
Using Bodiometer, people can regularly check their posture and become aware of their biomechanical and functional wellbeing.
Having this self-awareness can help people correct their spinal posture preventing the occurrence or increase of functional low back pain. Regular use can correct the damage done by years of neglect and poor posture.

07/12/2022

Forward head posture can be caused by adopting an incorrect posture for a long time. Depending on its severity, this disorder can cause excessive pressure and pain to the cervical spine.
The forward head posture causes excessive stretching of the front neck muscles and shortening of the back neck muscles.
With STRENGTH training, we can strengthen weak muscles that have been STRETCHED and bring back proper muscle tone and length to them. Also, by using corrective STRETCHING exercises, we can bring back the SHORTENED muscles to their proper size.
During the treatment process by strengthening and stretching corrective exercises, people can analyze their posture using the Bodiometer Home app and share their postural progress with their care provider. In this way, therapists or trainers can see the changes on the Bodiometer Pro Dashboard and adjust their treatment plans accordingly.

The theme of Earth Day 2022 is “Invest in Our Planet” and what we are thinking about today – and believe you might want to think about as well, is how much effort do we invest to make the transition from unsustainable to sustainable?
According to Alan Knight’s paper on sustainable lives: “We should see sustainably as a tool to enhance quality of life and devote creativity to providing lifestyle choices that deliver both a sustainable world and a good life”.
An interesting point of this paper is the fact that managing self-esteem and Health is listed as the highest priority in the list of 10 principles of sustainable lifestyles.
In Bodiometer, we believe that posture and health are linked and a reflection of both our physical and psychological well-being. Thus, this year we have started investing more efforts on increasing general public’s awareness about their health and wellness needs.
However, to help people make more sustainable choices , our corporate and public policy need to drive the change. Therefore, we are looking forward to joining forces with forward-thinking organizations and policy makers to shape the future of a sustainable lifestyle.

Bodiometer is one of the digital healthcare innovations you can trust.
Over the past couple of years, we participated in HaTCH, a unique accelerator that helps healthcare technology start-ups overcome strict privacy standards.
Throughout this program we built all of our applications on a privacy compliant engine that keeps patient information safe to the letter of the law in the US, Canada, and the EU.
Now that we are graduated from HaTCH, we are excited to put our innovations in the hands of clinicans and patients much more quickly.

🔍Case study time!
Shown here is a 82 y/o female whose data was collected from our project at CALEO Health.

Sometimes patients quit treatment after the 1st visit prematurely if they are more sore (which is usually expected!) This is a way to help encourage them and guide your clinical reasoning!

Bodiometer's newest automatic predictive function is represented by the dashed lines that give clinicians insight into where their client should be in the next visit helping you guide your treatment plan as you go!

Along with posture, we also help track pain & function - we can see that her pain increased and function decreased slightly after the first visit. After that pain continued to decrease with each visit with a continuous increase and improvement in function.

This is an example of what our comparitve reports can look like. This is our clinical solutions manager Fatma & were taken through Bodiometer Pro.
This feature is only available when using an iPad currently & allows you to do a side by side comparison of how you or your patients posture has either progressed or regressed.
This can be one of the tools that help you continue on with your current treatment plan or modify it to give your patient the best outcomes. It is also great to visually present to your patients so they have a better understanding of their plan and what they need to continue working on at home in between treatment sessions!

These are the possible effects of spinal/vertebral subluxation.

Looks like a scary list but note, many things can contribute to these symptoms so it's always important to check in with your trusted health care provider.

This subluxation is a fancy way of saying changes in the position of your vertebrae in your spine. Prolonged poor posture can be a leading factor for this which is why it's important to notice how you're sitting and standing throughout the day.

Deep core strengthening and scapular stabilization are important to incorporate in your fitness journeys --- What are your favourite postural strengthening exercises? Comment below!

In your day how many times can you count yourself getting into a forward head posture?

Using your phone, being on your laptop, sitting on your couch after a long day and/or driving. These are just some examples of daily activities that without extra thought can bring you into this position.

The saying my head feels heavy might literally be your head being heavier due to unideal alignment of your head and spine.

To name a few muscles, in this position you're allowing deep neck flexors and scapular stabilizers to become weak while your deep neck extensors and upper traps work overtime to try and bring your head back into alignment.

Do you ever get stuck sometimes trying to demonstrate an exercise to a patient properly? Or perhaps you yourself just aren't getting the proper positioning but don't know what to fix.

Here you can visually see this patient's form during a squat and also the discrepancies in the degrees before and after correction taken on the Bodiometer Home App.

When overcoming an injury exercising is very important for the rehabilitation process. Doing the exercises PROPERLY is even more important to make sure you are targeting the right muscle groups and not putting unnecessary pressure on other joints and muscles.

Sometimes, pain is not always gain!

Chiropractors have traditionally used Maintenance Care (MC), as secondary and tertiary prevention strategies. This article investigates the effectiveness of MC on pain trajectories for patients with recurrent or persistent low back pain (LBP).
The authors have designed a multicentre trial conducted across many clinics with subjects recruited in a geographical distribution that resembled the distribution of the general population of Sweden. Swipe left to read more about their findings!

We found great breakthroughs when diligently researching clinical data on this adjusting table at CALEO Health. We analyzed close to 1,000 patient data points to build our Machine Learning models and provide minimum viable predictions of posture, function and pain.
According to the responses collected from 44 patients who completed at least 5 assessments:
-84% agreed that Bodiometer postural images were helpful in improving their posture;
- 77.3% agreed that overall posture was improved throughout their treatment;
- 88.6% agreed they got enough information about the changes on their posture throughout their treatment;
- 97,7% were satisfied with their treatment plan; and
- 100% would recommend  CALEO Health to their friends and family.

We started 2022 strong, by launching a new feature to motivate patients to stick with their care plan. You can now leverage the power of artificial intelligence to predict the pain and functional score of your patients in their next visit.
When patients come back, you can compare the system's predictions with their actual results. In this way, you can gamify their treatment plan & see how you can continue or modify treatments to motivate them beat their projected scores to achieve the best outcomes.
