We utilize proven testing techniques, along with state of the art testing technology, to show measureable improvement and results in movement efficiency.
It's about performing initial testing, to create a point of reference, and then using that information to give recommendations and gauge progress.
People don't know what they don't know. And it's not their fault.
Sometimes people go through life assuming the way they move is 'normal'.
It's almost as though they are living their life in a living room with the dimmer light on - not knowing it could be brighter.
Our goal at BEAST is to shed more light on the situation.
It's about moving better. It's about feeling better. It's about being better.
At the end of the day, your body doesn't know if you are reaching down for a tennis shot, or reaching down to open a filing cabinet. But it does know you're going to try. Our goal is to make sure your movement efficiency is the best it can be.
Thank you for the opportunity to share BEAST Analytics!
"BEAST Analytics is a company that tests movement efficiency in people." - JKP
"It means we want to find out what people can do, and also what they can’t do, when it comes to 'normal movements'. To be honest, what they can’t do is way more important to me because it reveals where the true potential for improvement is hidden." - JKP
"There are certain movements that we have participants perform that involve things such as squatting, balancing, pushing, rotating, extending, bending, leaning, twisting, reaching, etc. " - JKP
"Because we can then determine where limitations or restrictions may exist." - JKP
"Because people don’t know what they don’t know. It’s almost as if they are living their life in a living room where the dimmer light is on. And until someone comes in and brings it to their attention, and turns the light up brighter, they are just going to assume it’s normal. The fact that those limitations and restrictions can ultimately lead to future problems is why we’d like to shed some light on it." - JKP
"Everyone. We started out testing athletes – elite and amateur. Then we realized your body really doesn’t care if you're reaching for a tennis shot down the baseline, or reaching for your child to keep him or her from running into the street. It just knows it needs to move." - JKP
"It shows us a lot of valuable clinical information. It tells us, for instance, if there is a limitation in range of motion, coordination, motor control, agility, stability, strength, etc. Depending on how the person is able to navigate the movement, we can determine where the restrictions may exist." - JKP
"Anyone who knows me, knows that I try to turn anything and everything clinical into a ‘School House Rock’ cartoon. Part of the participant getting better is understanding the problem, then it’s easier for him or her to justify the correction. It needs to make sense. So as the practitioner, I live by the quote 'if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough.'" - JKP
"Currently we are using the individual techniques from three separate companies – Fusionetics, Functional Movement Systems (FMS) and Movement Assessment Technologies (MAT). They are tremendous leaders worldwide in movement efficiency testing, and we at BEAST have incredible respect for their individual philosophies, specific protocols and overall systems." - JKP
"We all move. Your body doesn’t know if you’re standing up to go into a basketball game, or standing up to give a presentation at work. But it knows it needs to find a way to do it. Whether you’re a football player or a construction worker, movement is a necessity. And difficulty with certain movements – bending, reaching, twisting, rotating, balancing, etc. – can make you more prone to physical compensations, as well as lead to future injuries. BEAST Analytics is about testing people for movement efficiency. It's what we are good at, and what we are passionate about." - JKP
"Not necessarily new with regard to the techniques or technology that we are going to utilize, but definitely with regard to two groups that we'd like to focus on to try and help in the near future. Moms and Teachers - neither of which get enough credit if you ask me. They both go through a ton of movement, activity and exertion on any given day. At the moment, people have a natural perception that BEAST is pretty hardcore, and all about intense athletes. That's actually understandable though, given its name and logo. But we need to change that. BEAST is really about testing movement efficiency - in all people - regardless of the person's background. It's about moving better. It's about feeling better. It's about being better. At the end of the day, your body doesn't know if you are reaching down for a baseball, or reaching for your child. It doesn't know if you are sprinting in the Olympics, or chasing your kid. And it doesn't know if you are lifting weights, or lifting your little one. Your body just knows it needs to move. And the better it moves, the better the results." - JKP
