Physmodo’s original intent – in 2013 – was to reduce the time to perform worker’s comp evaluations. We sought efficiency in the process for someone after they’re hurt. Noble idea, but…
What if we could prevent someone from getting hurt? From throwing out one’s back? From tearing a rotator cuff? From blowing out a knee? And what if our technology could be applied to not just those performing worker’s comp evaluations? But instead to multiple verticals?
Since Gary Cook and Lee Burton created the Functional Movement Screen in 1995, an industry has evolved to recognize an individual’s risk for injury by identifying movement deviations. Yet, at the same time, musculoskeletal injuries – and costs – keep rising. We’re approaching $1 trillion (yes, trillion) in musculoskeletal costs in the U.S. And U.S. workers miss 291 million work days due to back and neck pain. It costs companies $50 billion per year. Yes, billion.
So, at Physmodo, we sought a new approach to evaluate how people move, with one goal: to develop a technology that reduces the likelihood of injuries by quickly identifying movement deficiencies and providing corrective strategies. And we have. And it applies to a wide variety of verticals. Any vertical where movement matters.
Our new 20 second screen is measurable, observable and scalable. We provide a composite score based on an individual’s range of motion, stability, posture and symmetry. We then provide therapeutic corrective exercise strategies mapped to individual needs.
