New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery partnered with Scientific Analytics Inc., to improve motion analysis for patients.


Four things to know:

1. The strategic collaboration will integrate Hospital for Special Surgery's knowledge with SAI technology, which received FDA clearance last week. The SAI DARI Motion technology has more than 425 billion data points of human motion.

2. The technology is designed to measure human movement patterns at the point of care without the subjects wearing sensors or special clothing. The DARI system can help with injury prevention, performance improvement and wellness.

3. The partners hope to develop a scalable way this technology can reach new patient populations that wouldn't otherwise receive its benefits.

4. SAI and Hospital for Special Surgery have worked together in the past, with the DARI system initially installed at one of the hospital's regional locations two years ago. The new partnership includes advancements that will assess protocols and data interpretation.
