Meet Quick Posture, a med-tech startup looking to revolutionise diagnosis of musculoskeletal problems

Written by on August 11, 2014

Quick Posture takes diagnosis to a whole new level. This state-of-the-art sensor technology precisely analyzes human movement and produces instantaneous animated on-screen feedback. When I first saw these guys pitch, back at Startup Day – I couldn’t help but be impressed. For one, this is definitely one of those “real problems” worth working on, and the entrepreneur is an Aussie, so that helped :)

Quick Posture is a software that uses biomechanics algorithms to make outlined 3D measurements of movements and detects musculoskeletal problems. Within just minutes, a patient will mimic the movements on the screen, the software will produce a full 3D image and a simple comprehensive electronic report for both the physician and patient. Diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, back pain or any other movement related disorders can be screened on daily basis hence making it more convenient to manage medication.

People over the age of 65 are more prone to movement related diseases; this in particular has Sweden spending more than 20 billion kronor annually. So, not only does this software ease movement diagnosis for physicians and individuals, it is economically beneficial on a national scale.

Soon it will be available to be used with Kinect 2 by Microsoft for only $199; it will not only be easy to use but inexpensive as well. Having more accuracy and affordability than other existing diagnosis methods such as X-rays or MRIs, Quick Posture leaves them far behind.

Glenn Bilby, one of the founders of Quick Posture, is a visionary health entrepreneur from Australia who plans to revolutionize movement analysis to manage health and wellness. Without it even been available for public sale, several clinics are already on the waiting list for purchase.
