Plantiga Labs is our new movement analysis and testing service. We assess wellness, rehabilitation, and performance.
Individuals from all walks of life can choose the assessment that aligns with their personal health goals and bring objective data to their coaches or health practitioners, helping them make informed decisions about health and wellness.
To evaluate general health and wellness and help track changes over time.
A functional lower-body evaluation for those who are looking to improve the way they move.
A gait analysis that gives insight into walking patterns.
Falls Risk Assessment
A gait analysis that can help clarify falls risk based on walking patterns.
To evaluate a specific injury or condition and encourage effective rehab practices.
Musculoskeletal Health Check
A suite of movement tests that evaluate functional strength and symmetry in order to track rehabilitation progress.
An individualized assessment that provides measures of neurological and functional health based on gait patterns, walking capacity, and walking speed.
To evaluate athletic performance and assess deficits that may increase injury risk.
A combine-style testing suite that evaluates strength, speed, power, and asymmetries to give a full picture of athleticism, and potential injury flags.
Return to Sport Assessment
A comprehensive evaluation that objectively measures an athlete’s biomechanical readiness for return-to-sport following an injury or surgery.
*ALL ASSESSMENTS includes: Walk, Run, CCMJ, Cyclic Jump, SLJ-Height, SLJ-Distance

Why Movement Testing?
Movement assessments can provide a detailed snapshot of current health, which can help your health professional identify specific movement patterns that may be limiting potential or creating greater risk for injury. With repeated testing, a timeline of progress can be used to monitor improvement or regression in the relevant areas of physical health.
Walking speed is associated with survival among older adults in individual epidemiological cohort studies and has been shown to reflect health and functional status.
With increasing walking speed (and increasing stride length), larger spinal rotations may cause a person with low back pain to walk slower or with shorter strides.
Ground Contact Time
Ground contact time is related to both running efficiency and maximal running speeds in elite distance runners, with differences between genders and distance specialties.
Jump height is associated with lower body power production and has been shown to correlate with 30m sprint times and 1RM back squat.
When comparing well-trained athletes who had had previous injury and those who had not, GCT asymmetries were significantly higher for the previous injury group in high intensity, short duration runs.
Reactive Strength Index
RSI is a measure of plyometric explosiveness and can be used for training optimization and monitoring.
