“We use a combination of computer vision and supervised machine learning techniques to analyze the quality of movements and identify musculoskeletal imbalances. Thereby, the feedback from our users and experts is used to make the artificial intelligence more and more precise.”
Prof. Dr. Welf Löwe
Chief Research Officer
The largest movement deviation isn't necessarily where you are having pain, but where an imbalance has been detected.
Movement deviations can be caused by an unequal use of certain muscle groups. It's not about having a stronger and a weaker side of your body. It's about an unequal response between those muscle groups that work together in a movement.
An imbalance occurs when one muscle group is over-activated while the other remains under-active.
If you achieve a score of 100%, your movement does not deviate from the golden standard which represents an ideal movement performance.
The average marker shows how you compare to all other AIMO users.
A low score means that your movement performance deviates significantly from the golden movement standard.
