Diagnostics and accurate measurement of human movement
An essential part of any movement assessment or diagnosis is the accurate measurement and recording of relevant information.
Biomechanix supplies professional diagnosticians throughout Australia with the world's leading products and software for the accurate measurement of movement.
Biomechanix is the authorised Australian and New Zealand distributor for a number of key suppliers including Zebris, Simi, Delsys and Bertec products.
These systems provide great benefits across a number of applications.

Key Areas of Benefit
The process of walking combines complex interactions between muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and neurons in the body.
2D & 3D movement analysis, force-distribution measurement and myography (muscle activity measurement) are opening up the entire world of biomechanics for clinicians, researchers and educators striving to understand and improve human movement.
These diagnostic systems help clinicians and researchers better understand human movement and the pathologies associated with it.
These proven measurement systems , generating precise and accurate information allow for effective evaluation of interventions can be used to assess the efficacy of these interventions.
Gait Rehabilitation & Training
The treadmill-assisted zebris Rehawalk® system is designed for the analysis and treatment of gait disorders in neurological, orthopedic and geriatric rehabilitation. The training can be carried out when using an unweighting system and thus also allows for patients who are suffering from severe functional limitations to commence therapy even at an early stage. The technological possibilities of Rehawalk® offer a complete adaptation to the patient's needs: from patients in wheelchairs over those with reduced mobility to the ones being capable of walking – the components can be adjusted to any application orientating themselves at the therapist. Rehawalk® thus is positioned between the robot-assisted locomotion therapy and the manual gait therapy.
Reporting & Continual Improvement
2D & 3D movement analysis, force-distribution measurement and myography (muscle activity measurement) provide precise and accurate data. Providing the clinician andresearcher with valuable data at initial evaluation of the subject and in ongoing evaluations. Monitoring the progress of the subject through an improvement regime of evaluate and re evaluate their efficiency.
We are opening up the entire world of biomechanics forclinicians, researchers and educators striving to understand and improve human movement.
Running analysis has the abilityto improve performance, prevent injury and help with rehabilitation high speed Simi 2D and 3D video motion capture, instrumented Zebristreadmills, Bertec force plates and Delsys myography are enabling sports clinicians, coaches and trainer better understand the demands that running places on the athlete
These technologies helpidentify abnormalities in the human running cycle including impaired shock absorption, limited or excessive joint excursions and stability of the foot , knee pelvis and spine.

High speed Simi 2D and 3D video motion capture, instrumented Zebristreadmills, Bertec force plates and Delsys Myography combine to give the sports clinician valuable information in assessing the athletes risk of injury, re-injury and readiness to return to sport following an injury.
The application of biomechanical measures such as motion capture, myography and force analysis kinematics and kinetics. The screening is able to do this by assessing the body’s ability to counterbalance joint moments during complex movements. If joints appear unstable and the assessment deems the body to be incapable of this, then this supports practitioners in making recommendations to patients about what course of action should be taken to improve stability sufficiently for a return to sport.
These recommendations should be designed specifically around the cause of the problem; whether it be muscle weakness or faulty movement strategy. The exact cause can however be difficult to identify with the naked eye and this is why the screening process supported by technology plays such an important role. For athletes who participate in sports where the body is placed under great strain, i.e. sports that require quick changes in direction or where joints undergo large accelerative forces, the test is particularly key; a misjudgement in diagnosis for these athletes is much more likely to result in problems. In addition to this function, the screening is also ideal for the identification of chronic and reoccurring injuries
