High Speed Motion Analysis

 

The cornerstone of any detailed physiotherapy assessment in sport is high speed motion analysis. This allows us to review movement in slow motion to accurately identify positional faults or movement discrepancies which may be related to pain or an increased risk of injury, and to assist is in adjusting your bike to the best possible position. Unfortunately, analysing only one side, or one side at a time often misses key information. At Star Physio we are able to review multiple sides at a time, and combine this information with our pressure and stability analysis tools to optimise your position unlike any other system in Perth.

Our high speed cameras operate at 60 Frames Per Second which is twice the rate of Retul and BG fitting systems. This means we don’t miss important details when making decisions about your analysis and bikefit. Run through our Gebiomized data analysis system, we can then accurately measure your position and critical angles and show you the changes as they happen.

Research has now shown us that knee angles are only part of the story in bikefit which is why every bikefit at Star Physio includes analysis of stability at the saddle through our incredible Gebiomized pressure analysis system, unique to Star Physio.

This combination of technologies will allow our expert bikefit physiotherapists in assisting you in achieving the best possible position to reach your exercise goals, keep healthy, and minimise the risk of injury.

Power Based Bikefitting with Adjustable Incline

There is not much point having you in a comfortable position while riding at 50 Watts, when your race load is 220 Watts, or if your pain only comes on when riding at high intensity uphill! On a bike your body is supported at the saddle, the feet and the hands +/- forearms. The harder you push the pedals, the less load is on the saddle and your hands. Using our Wahoo Kickr we are able to set a load appropriate to your riding for accurate assessment of your position and issues related to power output and high muscle demand.

You may only get knee pain when riding hard or low back pain while climbing steep hills. We need to reproduce these parameters during your physiotherapy consultation and bikefit to accurately identify the cause of your discomfort.

In addition to load adjustment, we can also change the incline of the bike on our custom made bikefit platform and then combine this with our High Speed Motion and Pressure Analysis to get the full picture and accurately adjust your bike.
