Yāna Assessment Technology
Objective Range of Motion Assessments
The Yāna Motion Lab™ team offers the most objective musculoskeletal assessment available. With Yāna’s proprietorial body motion data analysis and reporting, we identify inefficiencies in biomechanical movements which may otherwise go undetected during a traditional musculoskeletal exam by another healthcare provider. Yana is proud to use ‘best-of-breed’ 3D markerless motion capture technology from Scientific Analytics Inc. which makes it possible for range of motion assessments to be objective and comprehensive. Now, with Yāna, 3D markerless motion capture is possible in minutes, processing takes seconds, and actionable reports are available within hours.
Yāna Motion Lab™
Proprietary Motion Analysis Utilizing FDA Cleared Markerless Motion Capture Technology
Yāna Motion Lab™ is accurate, precise, and consistent.
How It Works
Take the first step to your motion health
What to Expect From a Range of Motion Assessment
Our services include packages for full-body motion assessments, upper-body motion assessments, and lower-body motion assessments. A full-body motion assessment consists of an in-depth analysis of 30+ carefully selected movements that will allow our certified technicians to identify symptomatic or asymptomatic areas that need improvement or adjustment. Assessments performed in our lab take only 15 to 30 minutes.
We invite you to come wearing comfortable activewear clothing and running shoes. You’ll be asked to do a series of regular, everyday movement without having to wear markers or other devices. High definition synchronized cameras capture your movements and the gigabytes of data are securely uploaded and analyzed by the most advanced human movement database in the world. You’ll then receive your full Yāna assessment report within 3 business days.
Simple & Non-Invasive
3D markerless motion capture does not require any time-consuming set-up, marker placements or wearable devices. Simply wear regular, authentic clothing and footwear to your session.
We have the world’s first and only FDA certified 3D markerless motion analysis measuring system approved for clinical use. This certification confirms a new best practice standard in measurement accuracy.
Objective & Clear Results
The Yāna proprietary motion assessment report provides visual, graphical, and tabular data for our clients, clinicians and health and wellness professionals to help the client understand how they move.
A body motion assessment session takes 15-30 minutes, and your Body Motion Assessment report will be available within 3 business days.
Yāna has developed and certified professional staff to provide a repeatable assessment each and every time.

Revolutionary Range of Motion Assessments in Vancouver
Over the past few years, Yāna Motion Lab™ has combined considerable amounts of data research to create the first ever motion lab of its kind in Vancouver, British Columbia. We provide an unparalleled, repeatable, and meaningful evaluation tool for understanding and evaluating motion health. Our range of motion assessment in Vancouver is a more focused and objective approach to understanding your motion health or injury and disability management. With the information from the detailed body motion assessment report, you, your clinicians and health and wellness team (treating professionals in healthcare or athletic therapy industries) can comfortably increase patient activity levels for optimal recovery, with fewer setbacks, and prevent overuse injuries during activities.
Frequently Asked Questions
No, there are no other 3D markerless motion systems that are FDA cleared
Yāna Motion Lab™’s approach to analysis is unique due to our database and the analysis of the data which has led to the Yāna Normative Index and the Yāna Normative Range waveforms. No one has done that before. You will see explanations of these terms in the brochure you will receive and with your Yāna Body Motion Assessment.
Motion analysis alone cannot diagnose injury. What we do provide is the only FDA cleared, objective tool that measures human movement that is critical in healing and wellness.
A movement waveform shows the degree of movement that you have and how you got there. It tracks the trajectory of your movement from start to finish and not just the range of motion start and end points. This is the Yāna Motion Lab ™ difference; no one has been able to provide this before.
We do not. Vertical ground reaction force is estimated using a validated mathematical method that requires full body motion capture and tracking the estimated centre of mass. Scientific literature can be provided if needed.
Assessing spinal posture is best achieved with x-ray scoliograms, if deemed relevant by your medical professional. The consensus on spinal posture is that it is largely irrelevant and the movement of surrounding joints is more critical to injury risk and function.
The Yāna markerless system offers more in-depth data than a marker-based system, measuring kinematics with accurate vertical ground reaction force estimations.
