What are the benefits of DragonPHY for physical therapists?
 
Simply stated, you can improve patient outcomes while boosting clinic revenue. The system is fast enough to use on every gait-related patient to create a baseline and then help the patient visualize and track their improvements with empirical data. Patients will attend more of their sessions. The system provides therapists with 40+ gait measurements at levels impossible to see through observation. Written reports make insurance documentation easy. Finally, clinics can make money and attract new private pay customers with assessment and biofeedback training sessions for running injury prevention and performance improvement.
 
How complicated is DragonPHY to use or is there lots of training?
 
The system is the most advanced, yet simple system on the market. It ships with a simple user manual and after an online video tutorial even the most technology shy physical therapists are using the system like a pro. While DragonPHY provides enough data to pour over for hours, our standard reports (both onscreen and printed) were designed for physical therapists and zero in on common gait related cases to instantly assist in your consultation with the patient.
 
How does DragonPHY compare to other systems in the market?
 
Our system has no equal. Our patented technology replaces the bulky multiple cameras of other systems and provides dramatically higher accuracy than both optical and non-optical systems. From a single out-of-the-way position behind the treadmill the technology doesn’t get in the way of you and the patient. DragonPHY is the first and only system designed and priced exclusively for physical therapy with a user-friendly app and the first comprehensive database of healthy subject movement for comparison purposes.
 
Is the system a medical device?
 
No. The DragonPHY system by Metria Innovation, Inc. and the resulting reports, precision measurements, comparisons and visualizations are for informational purposes only. The information provided should only be used in conjunction with a consultation by a qualified fitness or medical professional.

What’s with the name DragonPHY?
 
A combination of dragonfly and physical therapy. Dragonflies see in UltraHD, arguably the best sight in the entire animal kingdom. Superior vision sensing gives their long sleek bodies fast and precise movements and lightning quick reactions. Much like the dragonfly, our technology lets the physical therapist see detail and nuanced motions that were impossible until today, unleashing performance improvements and rehabilitative outcomes.
