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

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, our practitioners can tailor a specific program for better health and fitness outcomes. The technology allows you to see results through the course of your treatment ensuring that you can understand the 'how and why' of our treatments.

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