We are thrilled to announce that specialized rehabilitation institute Roessingh, Center for Rehabilitation has signed a multiyear agreement with Moveshelf, centralizing measurements from both movement labs where Roessingh measures patients.
Roessingh, Center for Rehabilitation, located in the east of the Netherlands, is a leading center in specialized rehabilitation of complex gait and arm/hand disorders. In the Roessingh Diagnostic Center, which is supported by Roessingh Research and Development (RRD), Roessingh provides patients with highly specialized diagnostics and independent treatment advice. To support this activity, the walking and arm/hand functions of patients are measured in one of their highly advanced movement analysis labs, either based on 3D optical camera systems from Vicon or on 2D camera systems, from Noraxon, integrated with EMG and force plates from AMTI.
After implementation, and for at least the next four years, Moveshelf will serve as Roessingh’s Information System for Clinical Movement Analysis, securely storing and visualizing measurements, video and data from all of their laboratories. Relying on Moveshelf’s certified Information System, Roessingh’s clinicians and therapists will securely be able to reach their patient’s complete gait analysis results from anywhere they are working, even when working from home. The first use of Moveshelf will start as early as this September, with the yearly 7-day course Movement Analysis of Adults hosted by RRD. In this course, rehab physicians, physiotherapists and other gait lab specialists will analyze case studies through Moveshelf’s modern and intuitive interface, which is designed to support clinical personnel without intense training on technical software.
The collaboration has started enthusiastically with the preparation for the course and will continue with Moveshelf, Roessingh and RRD teams working together to ensure smooth implementation and adoption in daily clinical use. Corien Nikamp, PhD, who has 15 years of specialized experience in clinical movement analysis at Roessingh, mentions: “What Moveshelf has shown us so far is already far better than our previous tools, and I can’t wait for the full implementation.“
