OrthoAspen, Hospital for Special Surgery team for pop-up this weekend, Monday

Aspen Times reports on free analyses using the DARI markerless motion-detection system will be offered on behalf of the HSS and OrthoAspen collaboration at a three-day pop up event (Saturday-Monday) at the Gondola Plaza. Users will receive a personalized report about their mobility, symmetry, strength and alignment to assess their musculoskeletal health. Partakers will be tasked with jumping, balancing, and other exercises. While participants won’t be receiving medical advice, they will leave armed with additional knowledge about their bodies’ athletic potential and limitations through a process that should take about eight minutes. 

Aspen Times spoke to Robert DiGiacomo, PT, DPT, ATC, assistant vice president of sports rehabilitation at HSS, to discuss the user experience, who cited, "You'll get feedback on the way to prevent injury and improve your performance," adding, "we really get a picture of the whole body." DiGiacomo explained, "It’s a great opportunity to showcase the technology as this whole field continues to grow," concluding, "I think what we’re working with is like we just discovered the automobile. It will keep improving and improving and get to the hybrid (vehicle). It’s just the beginning."
