Preventing Injuries Before They Happen

Musculoskeletal injuries (MSI) are the 5th highest economic burden of any group of diseases in Canada. Amazingly, musculoskeletal injury has never had a method for accurately addressing individual movements. At Yāna, we have introduced a new standard for evaluating musculoskeletal health. Many individuals are walking through life with the results of old injuries and have persistent abnormal movement patterns. While these may not currently be an issue, they have the potential to lead to later dysfunction or injury. We believe that it is in the best interest of employers to have employees scanned. Our analysis will allow employers to have employees assessed and correct any existing issues as well as provide a baseline of function that can be used to isolate any future problems.

Is Yana For Me?

Question

Can Yāna Prevent Injuries?
Your baseline assessment can be used to determine any musculoskeletal dysfunction that is present at the time of the screening. This information can help determine the potential for injury and drive appropriate exercises and rehab efforts to improve function before an injury occurs.

Question

Will Yāna Help With My Recovery?
Yāna is not a facility for treating injuries, but the reporting we provide allows healthcare professionals to better understand a patient’s situation, equipping them to select the best possible treatments and fast-track the recovery process.

Question

What If I Don’t See Results?
Yāna provides an accurate measure of your full body movement and can give valuable insights that your clinician would not previously have access to. However, if your condition requires further testing to help obtain better insights, we can help your therapist/clinician find the right solution.

The Paradigm Shift

The advances in computational and cloud processing and motion capture technology have created a ‘Paradigm Shift’ in the tracking, set-up and measurement of musculoskeletal health and range of motion.  In as little as 30 minutes we can provide a comprehensive look at your complete movement pattern. This technology was simply not possible before and is more accurate and reproducible than techniques presently used.  We like to think about markerless motion capture like a doctor performing a CT scan; while they can examine you with their hands, a CT scan gives far more information about your body and is now a gold standard evaluation tool for healthcare professionals around the globe.  Yāna’s 3D markerless motion capture techniques and proprietary reporting protocols represent the same leap in information gathering and will soon be the new gold standard in musculoskeletal assessment.

Yāna’s Unique Assessment System

Our assessment is appropriate and useful for individuals searching for a way to establish baseline movements, therefore making it easier to prevent and identify future issues. Knowing the status of your musculoskeletal system is just as important as knowing your blood pressure or cholesterol, and Yāna has the only comprehensive, fast, accurate and proven tool available.

Our System is Capable of:

  • Screening for unrecognized injury
  • Guiding rehabilitation efforts
  • Maximizing training activities
  • Determining the effects of past injuries
