Computer Vision

How it works

Curv’s computer vision technology allows you to be evidence-based at a distance. You can use this tool to track various metrics and progress, and provide high-quality, objective feedback.

Navigate to the “Physical Health - Evaluation” category within Activities, where there are assessments which measure various outcomes such as range of motion, vertical jump height, rep counts, and more.

Note: for activities outside of the “Physical Health - Evaluation” category, assigning the exercise as a check-in will still result in the body’s joint angles being tracked through the movement.

How to use it

If you’d like clients to submit videos of specific assessments or exercises using Curv’s computer vision technology, then mark the routine the exercises are in as a “Check-In” when building the program.

“Check in” routines require the client to film themselves performing the Activity. Based on the camera and person orientation settings of the activity,  the Curv app will direct the client into the right position, to help them get the best results.

Providing feedback

Once a client has completed a “check in” routine (aka their recorded assessment) and the videos have been processed, you’ll receive a notification in the platform saying “assessment completed.” From the Assessments Completed widget in the dashboard, or from the messaging feed with the client, you can review the assessment or exercise. Pause the video at the point where you would like to leave feedback. Tap on the plus sign, pen or microphone to leave feedback in the form of a typed message, drawing, or voice memo. When the client reviews your feedback, they’ll be brought to that exact point in the video.

Tracking Trends

“Physical Health - Evaluation” assessments generate metrics such as range of motion, vertical jump height, or reps. These metrics are then tracked as trends within the client’s dashboard page. When a client repeatedly completes an assessment, the trends can help inform your decisions on how to move forward with treatment plans.

Using Computer Vision with in-person clients

Using Curv and its computer vision technology in a hybrid solution (both remotely and in-person) is also an option.

First, make sure the client has an account set up on the Curv Health app and is connected with you. (See this page - link to add client page - to learn how to add a new client.)

From their profile in the dashboard tab, tap “New Session.” From there, select the exercise or assessment you’d like them to complete.

When you’re ready, tap “Record Activity.” Using the camera on your iPad, the app provides instructions to help get the client into the right position, and will count down when it’s ready to record.

Once the client has finished completing the exercise, hit the red record button in the top right corner to finish the recording. Note that there is the option to re-do the assessment or submit it as is for analysis.

If that’s the only assessment you wish to record, you can complete the “Ad-Hoc” session, or add another assessment.

After all the assessment videos have been completed, feel free to revisit the videos and associated metrics in the client’s messaging feed.

How accurate is your computer vision technology?

Curv Health leverages the latest in monocular computer vision technology to achieve incredibly accurate measurements.

Our assessments are composed of highly refined machine learning models that can track and measure multiple joints using just a smartphone camera. These models are highly accurate - measured to track the body within 1” (2.5cm) in our tests.

This level of accuracy allows us to confidently provide posture, performance, and related metrics to you and your clients.
