What does 3D Movement Quotient include?

Your EXOS 3D Movement Quotient includes a 3D motion-capture screen that measures how you move. Think of it like a blood test, but without all those pesky needles: The screen itself only takes five minutes, but it provides you with a wealth of information you can use to help your body feel better. And the screen is just the beginning. After your screen you’ll receive a full report that breaks down your movement and highlights your top focus area. Your report also links you to a personalized movement session that targets your specific focus area.

How will 3D Movement Quotient help me?

Aches and pains can keep you from doing the things you love, but knowing how to solve those issues can be difficult. Often the area where you feel pain might only be a symptom of a root problem in another area. For example, if you’ve got pain in your lower back, you may think the cause is stiff back muscles. But for people that sit at desks all day, lower back pain is often related to poor glute function or poor hip mobility. With the technology in EXOS 3D Movement Quotient, we can help you pinpoint that root cause and solve issues throughout your body. While results vary, participants can start to notice an improvement in just two weeks by completing their recommended movement session.

What technology does the screen use?

EXOS 3D Movement Quotient uses eight high-speed cameras to capture 171,190 data points by recording 360 degrees of movement in 21 bone segments and nine joints. The technology then measures your movements against 70 indicators of proper movement to process your results in seconds and generate an evaluation of how you move.

How do I prepare for my screen?

Before your assessment, you’ll need to create your account on the EXOS platform. Once you’ve completed your screen, you can log in to your account to view your report and access your mobile-friendly, personalized movement session. The day of your screen, make sure your clothing matches our guidelines (see below), and be on time for your appointment. Our host will answer any other questions you might have while you wait for your turn. Don’t worry about warming up before your screen. We know you want to do your best, but we want to get a good baseline for your everyday movement. You probably don’t warm up before picking up your child or carrying in the groceries, and those little movements can be a better indicator of how you feel when you move than what you do in the gym.

What happens during the screen?

When you arrive at your appointment, we’ll have someone there to greet you. You’ll go over a few details and he or she will answer any questions you might have. There might be other members there at the same time waiting for their screen, but the screening area will be partitioned off so that your screen stays private. During your five-minute screen you do eight simple movements. Don’t worry, no athletic ability required. Just follow along with the demonstration on the screen and the technician will make sure everything is captured correctly. After you’re done with your screen, the host will go through your report with you and show you where to find your focus area. You’ll be able to review your report in-depth later via the emailed link you’ll receive soon after your screen.

What do I wear for my screen?

Due to the mechanics of the motion-capture technology and the movement requirements for your screen, please follow these clothing recommendations. What to wear:

  • Fitted athletic clothing like a T-shirt, shorts, or tights
  • Comfortable shoes you can move in
  • Solid, dark colors
What not to wear:
  • Loose, baggy clothes
  • White or green garments
  • Checkered, gingham, plaid patterns

What do I get in my report?

Once you’ve completed your movement screen, you’ll receive an email with your report. Your report includes your overall movement quality results, a breakdown of your scores, and a few of the 171,190 data points we collected during your screen. Your report will also highlight your top priority for improvement, which you can address with your personalized movement session.

How often should I do my movement session?

In the email with your report, you’ll find a link to a personalized movement session created based on your results. The movement session is mobile-friendly version so you can take it with you anywhere. Your movement session is designed to help you improve your focus area through a customized set of low-stress movements. The session will take 10 to 15 minutes and can be done anytime. Do your movements four or five times a week and you can start feeling and moving better in a few weeks.
