DARI - 3D Motion Lab
DARI—Dynamic Athletics Research Institute
The Panorama Wellness and Sports Institute is proud to introduce its new state-of-the-art motion capture and analytics system, DARI. DARI was created to capture the most precise individual motion data in less than 10 minutes; this data has endless applications in training, injury rehabilitation, and injury prevention.
Our bodies are designed to adapt and compensate, this is how we grow stronger through training. However, if done improperly, each adaptation may mean that the body becomes more prone to an injury, more asymmetrical, or that more weaknesses are created because one part of the body is being favored. By using DARI, we can check each of these areas that make the body vulnerable and get a baseline to check progress in how training is affecting the body and adjust accordingly.
This real-time analysis of your movement will allow our coaches, therapists, and doctors to create scientifically customized exercise and rehabilitation planning optimized for your health, wellness and fitness.
What is DARI?
The DARI system consists of eight high-speed cameras which capture the details of body movement as each subject moves through 19 tests. Each DARI scan captures the movements of your body down to less than a millimeter of movement creating, with pinpoint accuracy, a report which identifies imbalances, asymmetries, weaknesses, and how your body creates force. Every movement is then analyzed for different movement patterns to generate a report which leads to a custom plan for you.
The DARI system has been used in the NFL, NHL, MLB, MLS, and for Olympic and collegiate athletes to give trainers an objective view of training and its effects throughout the season.
The benefits of DARI come in the form of:
- - Improving body movement
- - Rehabilitating injuries quicker
- - Optimizing and enhancing the effects total body training
- - Aiding the prevention of new injury and re-injury
Sport science is no longer reserved for only professional athletes!

MuscleSound is a non-invasive, quick and easy, ultrasound-based muscle health assessment which provides two major muscle health indicators: body composition (body fat and lean body mass) and muscle fuel levels (glycogen). There has yet to be a non-invasive measurement of these indicators as accurate and timely as MuscleSound.
In the assessment for Muscle Fuel, 14 key muscle indicators look at the muscle health of all major muscles, but also determines imbalances between the left and right sides of the body. This can be used as an early warning of readiness for an event, as well as to assess recovery progress in particular rehabilitation situations.
In the assessment for Body Composition, seven body sites are used to assess percent body fat and percent muscle mass. The system also provides a breakdown of fat thickness at individual sites, as well as a comprehensive tracking of change over time in these locations.
"It's like a heart for your foot." With a small, yet powerful technology that fits in the insole of the Footbeat shoe and creates pressure in the arch of the foot, FootBeat is able to provide circulation benefits for both health and athletic training. Time of use will vary for each individual and results sought, but all you need to do is sit or lay back comfortably with the FootBeat shoe on, hit the wireless button, and start the beat!
One of the greatest results from using FootBeat is pain relief. This works through the pressure on the arch of the foot increasing the blood velocity by
four times. The body responds by releasing chemicals which relieves pain, promotes healing, and gets you back on your feet. For athletes, the circulation created by this pressure is clinically proven to improve performance, recover faster, and train harder by creating healthy blood flow and returning the body to normal lactic levels.
Footbeat is wireless (no cords needed) so it is easy for travel too!

MAT - Muscle Activation Technique
MAT is an assessment of range of motion to pinpoint areas in the body where muscle weaknesses may lie. MAT addresses whether muscles can contract by utilizing range of motion assessments, clinical kinesiology strength testing (also called isolated muscle strength testing), and a palpation technique unique to MAT to reinitiate a conversation between the muscles and the brain. This conversation can be impaired due to stress, trauma, and/or overuse.
MAT’s purpose and contribution to the therapeutic world is to restore stability and mobility to every joint in the body. Muscle Activation Techniques accomplishes this through focusing on neuro-muscular communication and fine tuning the body to effectively activate muscles so a client can be free of pain, discomfort, and limitation
