What is Move Correctly developing?
Move Correctly is developing a posture and movement assessment software based onthe Kinect skeletal tracking system. We aim to help personal trainers and wellness professionals provide better service and improve their client well-being. Our system assesses the users’ posture and movement patterns and provides corrective recommendations which the professional can customize and review together with the client. It enables the professional to show in clear, quantitative measures the quality of the clients’ posture and mobility – leading to better customer satisfaction and motivation.
Where can I use Move Correctly’s system?
We Beta tested our software in Singapore in 2013/2014. We are now preparing the next version forlaunch in the US in Q1 2017. Please reach out via the Contact page for more information.
What does the Move Correctly software do?
Move Correctly is a TRUE 3D posture and movement assessment software built with 3D sensors. We aim to help personal trainers and wellness professionals provide better service and improve their client well-being.

It enables the professional to show in clear, quantitative measures the quality of the clients’ posture and mobility – leading to better customer satisfaction and motivation.
What got you interested in posture and movement patterns?
At the end of 2007 I moved to the US and I gained about 5 kilos in 5 months. When I realized what had happened – I bought some weights, and started lifting in my garage. I noticed soon that years of crouching over a laptop had screwed up my mobility. I’d spend half an hour trying to get warmed up enough to be able to squat – and then still struggle to hit parallel depth (thighs parallel to ground). I started reading up on mobility, soft tissue work and movement screens. Eventually I met Dr. Will Kalla in Singapore in March 2012, and the idea for Move Correctly was conceived.
Why the Kinect?
The Kinect is the leading ‘markerless’ movement tracking tool, in a very affordable package. The skeletal tracking algorithm and the constantly improving software development kit (SDK) have led to the success of the Kinect. Microsoft recently announced the new Kinect for Windows, and we are confident that Microsoft will continue investing in the skeletal tracking algorithm and Kinect hardware, eventually also bringing better algorithms for tracking of rotational movements and floor exercises, which are essential in movement assessment and correction. The Kinect is very easy to use, and people trust the Microsoft brand.
When should I Move Correctly?
Monthly assessments would be good. Doing weekly assessments might not be wise as corrective exercises do not take effect in such a short period.
Why movement assessment with the Kinect?
Although we humans come in all shapes and sizes, there are fundamental movements that we perform and learn since young, and for which the CORRECT mechanics are pretty much the same. These include squats, lunges, balancing on one leg, rotating your trunk, among many others. Using the Kinect, which requires nothing to hold on to, makes performing the movements more natural, and makes it more effective for catching issues with our fundamental human movements.
Why do you have confidence in the technology Move Correctly is developing?
First – we are developing a unique software in that we can do both posture and movement assessment in one solution – which can have application in many fields. We are very focused on listening to our customers, and we have all along been iteratively developing based on their feedback. Secondly, the problems of bad posture and mobility in society are going to get worse if we don’t come up with good solutions for it. We have a great team of developers, advisors and contacts who can deliver, and provide the solutions many are looking for, but can not yet find.

How does Move Correctly’s system work?
The Kinect provides us with the 3-dimensional positions of the 25 main joints in the body. We identify the key joints for tracking during each posture and movement.
Who should Move Correctly?
Everybody! ... However, while we would like help everyone, we have decided to start by targeting gym goers. The complex nature of human movement sometimes requires in depth explanations by experienced trainers in gyms for a client to figure out which body part is potentially going to cause trouble. Also, we noticed quite a lot of gym goers train hard, but fail to keep up on their mobility, ending up with movement dysfunction, and we would like to raise awareness before these people get hurt. If you start on a barbell training program with your body not moving correctly first, your risk getting injured, and stalling the whole process instead.
