The AxIT system provides real-time feedback on the peak force produced (how strong you are) and rate of force development (how fast you can produce the force).

This system helps to set goals and subsequently motivates patients to keep up their rehabilitation and exercise plans, even once the pain from their injury has subsided. In addition, it is extremely valuable in determining return to play decisions for sports. For example, it is heavily utilised in ACL and post shoulder dislocation return to play decision making. Using this information, your therapist can tailor a specific program for better health and fitness outcomes. The technology allows patients to see their results through the course of their treatment ensures that they can understand the 'how and why' of our treatments.

The AxIT system records multiple types of data which is useful for measuring:
