[Video Profile] Sherlock-NMD

When an athlete is injured, their career and value to the team are at risk. At all levels of athletics, including everyday fitness enthusiasts, the frequency and severity of injuries makes it imperative to find better methods to identify and treat biomechanical muscular skeletal dysfunctions.

Currently, the most widely used diagnostic tools for muscular skeletal injuries are X-rays and MRI’s. These are static diagnostic tests, done with the patient standing or lying still. Although this is necessary for the identification of bone breaks, fractures and muscle tears, it is not optimal for the diagnosis of mechanical dysfunctions. Muscular skeletal injuries occur while moving. An accurate diagnosis of injuries that occur while moving requires a diagnostic system that analyzes movement.

Sherlock-NMD has developed a non-invasive biomechanical diagnostic system that can record and analyze human range of motion in a full 3D environment. The system can be used by physicians, professional and college sports team trainers and physical therapists specializing in injury detection, treatment, prevention and performance enhancement.

The Sherlock NMD system visualizes, analyzes and provides diagnostic data while the patient is in motion (including everyday activities). This new technological breakthrough will fill the gap in current medical diagnostics systems. Based on preliminary patent research, the company expects very broad patent coverage on its equipment, hardware and software system.

The company will use a dual-revenue business model. The first involves the capital equipment expense: a sensor system suit, a dedicated laptop computer and other items (under $50,000). Recurring revenues are generated through a web-based subscription that will allow users to access a secure web server containing the diagnostics software.
