Clemson University, located in Clemson, SC, is partnering with Physimax, a technology engineered to provide evaluations aimed at helping athletes and others improve their performance and avoid injuries.
Physimax provides an MSK (musculoskeletal) Snapshot that presents an objective and comparative score regarding the athlete/participant’s muscular condition with respect to mobility, stability, strength and control. This Snapshot, along with personalized functional training programs, are sent directly to users’ smartphones.
“We’re excited to join forces with Clemson University’s esteemed Campus Recreation program and facilitate scientific personalized training programs to every passionate individual in the region,” says Physimax CEO Ram Shalev, in a media release from Physimax.
“Our mission is to empower athletes fulfill their goals and stay away of injuries by providing direct access to their MSK Snapshot, already with proven impact in pro-sports.”
The staff at University Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine (UPTSM), a private outpatient practice located on the Clemson University campus, oversees the Physimax evaluations, notes a media release from Physimax.
“With Physimax our staff can provide every individual with the opportunity to gain immediate scientific insights about his/her body, and training recommendations according to results in a manner similar to a professional athlete,” states UPTSM owner Dr Dana Van Pelt, in the release.
“Physimax is a valuable tool in engaging people toward improved movement and long-term wellbeing. It provides us with an advanced technology for our students to gain hands on assessment experience and conceptualize an integrated well-being approach within a large community,” notes Jenny Rodgers, assistant director for fitness and wellness at Clemson.
