While this may sound far-fetched, we at the BioDynamics Institute have been fine-tuning a breakthrough algorithmic programme that utilises artificial intelligence and could assist in potentially achieving these objectives. We hope to change the way exercise therapy is used as a preventative medicine. This innovative and novel programme is called Predictive and Preventive Solutions (PPS) and was created specifically to enhance your professional skills, rather than replace them. The intention is to provide support in achieving a solution that addresses the patient’s needs and condition as quickly as possible. Learn how to take advantage of the benefits of AI in digital medicine to supplement your arsenal of resources.

What if…

  • Using an algorithmic AI tool could limit the guesswork of your diagnoses and treatment strategies?
  • The information generated from the AI programme could assist in the improvement of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular function?
  • The AI programme could enhance your practitioner’s standard of excellence in treatment?
  • The quantitative data presented could improve patient-practitioner trust and create a more personalized relationship between parties?
  • The evidence at your disposal could ensure efficient treatment and increase patient satisfaction?

Happy patients cultivate referrals and can only lead to a more productive practice. While patients often seek a quick fix, it is not easy to accurately and effectively achieve this. The PPS aims to help you as a practitioner to make the most informed decisions regarding diagnoses and therapeutic strategies. With more objective data at your disposal, you have the opportunity to ensure that standards of excellence in treatment are maintained.

So what is PPS?

PPS refers to an AI programme developed by the BioDynamics team that is founded on the principle of the human skeleton adhering to the Golden Ratio found all throughout nature. The spine, shoulder girdle, and pelvic girdle together form a structural universal column and the overall structural integrity of the skeleton is subsequently maintained by this anatomical universal column.

Similarly, any disruptions to the uniformity of the structure decreases stability and introduces a risk for injury. PPS uses anatomical measurements from a whole body X-ray and plugs it into an algorithm that is able to identify specific areas that are more susceptible to developing orthopaedic injuries. Thus, by pinpointing the root causes of potential ailments, preventative exercise therapy can be implemented to reduce the risk of injury.

Data were collected from over 6000 cases of patients across a spectrum of conditions and used to develop the AI programme. Analyses of these data provided specific, accurate and practical insight into orthopaedic and biomechanical functionality of individuals. Not only does the PPS afford you access to a valuable analysis tool capable of treating injuries, physical discomfort, and chronic conditions, it also facilitates the development of a biomechanical approach in treatment strategies.

How does PPS work?

To get started, what we require from you is a questionnaire based on the patient’s history to be completed and a global X-ray of the patient’s body. The full body X-ray of the patient focuses on two segments:

  • The upper body in an erect position (sacrum to nasal bone) – Scoliosis study
  • The lower body in an erect weight-bearing position (calcaneus to sacrum – Leg length study

Once we acquire the information and X-rays, we conduct a number of anatomical measurements that are further processed as quantitative data. The data gathered is run through the PPS programme and a detailed report is generated. The report focuses on which areas are more susceptible to injury and how an appropriate exercise programme can help address future musculoskeletal complications. A preventative treatment strategy is formulated to ensure that with sufficient strength and conditioning, patients are able to have protective measures in place.

How we create a successful patient outcome:

  1. Create a sustainable patient/practitioner interaction.
    We want to create an out of the box relationship to what is usually expected between the patient and the practitioner. While the treatment plan is a priority, effective communication regarding information that will improve the patient’s understanding of their own body is a major focus.
  2. Provide a unique platform for engagement.
    The PPP is not about a set of exercises, therapy or orthotics that will magically solve your problems. It provides the opportunity for a practitioner to gain a different form of data and knowledgeable insight into the root cause(s) of the patient’s problems. This not only allows for the practitioner to save time in formulating their treatment strategies, but can also improve the efficiency of and confidence in their problem solving abilities. It is also a good time for patients to be able to reflect on the information provided and engage in positive action to remedy any weaknesses they can improve on.
  3. Means of measurements.
    By using the PPS system, the practitioner is easily able to do a double evaluation. One can then assess whether:
    1. The patient is compliant with the treatment prescribed.
    2. The practitioner is successful in their treatment protocols.
    A successful outcome can be quantified by various physical measurements that we have protocols for, e.g. 1RM tests and kinematic visuals on ROM. All results are displayed visually by means of graphs or photographic material so that they can be easily understood by both the practitioner and the patient.

No more guesswork, more efficiency.
