Wearable Technology for Health Practitioners and Elite Sports Teams

Plantiga, the smart insole and movement analytics company, is announcing the official launch of Arc5, the fifth iteration of their groundbreaking hardware and software platform.

Arc5 is Accelerometry for Researchers and Clinicians. It has the ability to collect lab-quality movement data in any environment for up to 12 hours. This technology allows in-depth analysis of movement patterns without cameras, cables, or additional sensors that impede natural movement. Whether embedded in an insole, orthotic or shoe, Arc5 excels in three key areas:

  1. Precise Movement Analysis: Arc5 measures stride-by-stride movement asymmetries and step-by-step load throughout the day, offering data quality validated to gold standard tools. Plantiga and the Arc5 platform enable health practitioners and sports teams to comprehensively understand individual movement patterns.

  2. Seamless Data Collection: With its advanced machine learning and AI models, Arc5 automatically detects walking, running, and jumping, providing a seamless and unobtrusive data collection experience. This eliminates the need for manual input and ensures accurate and reliable data for analysis.

  3. Comprehensive Analysis and Insights: Upon data upload, Arc5 analyzes trends over time on various metrics, extracts gait features, offers additional insights, and empowers health practitioners and sports teams to uncover valuable information about movement patterns and their impact on health and performance.

“We are bringing the lab to the person,” says Quin Sandler, CEO and co-founder of Plantiga. “Where wrist-worn devices and mobile phones fall short, Arc5 emerges as a paradigm-shifting wearable product. We aim to help athletes get healthy, stay healthy, and perform at their best. Arc5 caters to the needs of athletes and the professionals who support them, including physical therapists, athletic trainers, coaches, and sports scientists.”
