Scientific Analytics Inc (SAI) has received FDA 510K medical device designation for its computer-vision-powered motion analysis technology, DARI Health, and has formed a strategic collaboration with Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS).

SAI’s markerless DARI Motion computer vision and biomechanical analysis technology features more than 425 billion data points of human motion gathered across applications in wellness, military, athletics, and healthcare. Collaboration with HSS will integrate leading knowledge and technology to set new standards for full-body, dynamic motion analysis at population scale, according to the company.

“We are excited to work with HSS to advance new standards in motion health and disrupt areas of healthcare where we continue to build upon our innovation leadership – as indicated by the recent FDA clearance of DARI Health,” comments Todd Gleason, President and CEO at Scientific Analytics.

“This collaboration is an important new part of the musculoskeletal care ecosystem being created by HSS, to make better quality injury prevention and treatment more widely available,” states Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS, in the release.

“This emerging HSS ecosystem including the DARI platform will help set new standards in the quality and availability of musculoskeletal wellness, assessment devices, and solutions,” said Shapiro.

Joel Hungate, Scientific Analytics’ vice president of orthopedic programs, sees DARI Health and HSS revolutionizing the way the world addresses the emerging challenges of population-level musculoskeletal health.

“There has always been a massive unmet technological need in musculoskeletal healthcare for an accurate, scalable, repeatable, and objective way to quantify human movement and guide clinical decision-making at the point of care, and this was traditionally not feasible within the constraints of any given clinical workflow, until now,” he notes.

SAI’s DARI Motion Health and HSS aim to provide clinicians with an FDA-cleared, accurate, and reliable solution that can capture clinically relevant human movement data at the point of care. In doing so, the organizations aim to create a new standard in data-driven, value-based musculoskeletal health while objectively documenting outcomes and delivering a powerfully engaging patient experience, per the release.
