KPEC: Kinesics Practical Evaluation Course


Kinesics Practical Evaluation Course is designed to deliver the skills and competence to conduct arthrokinematic and osteokinematic range of motion assessments using the Halo digital measurement device. The HALO digital measurement device is an FDA and TGA approved measurement tool that combines the capabilities of the goniometer, inclinometer and petrometer into one measurement tool.

By the end of this course, the practitioner will be proficient in the execution of 43 range of motion measurements, the implementation of a standardized process for evaluation with customization features, and have the ability to quickly and objectively collect and record data.


At the end of this course professionals will be able to: 

  • Conduct 43 range of motion measurements using the Halo digital measurement device

  • Recognize, correct and prevent the common compensations that may occur with each measurement

  • Implement a standardized evaluation process

  • Conduct customized evaluations in as little as 1-3 minutes

  • Conduct a comprehensive, full body evaluation ranging in time from 45 - 60 minutes

  • Collect and record objective data

  • Gain approval to license the Kinesics software app to generate reports and data analytics

A certificate of completion is autogenerated upon course completion with a score of 70% or higher. Scores below 70% are eligible for re-testing. 

Course Rationale:

To provide a standardized, quantifiable process for conducting arthrokinematic and osteokinematic evaluations, and provide a method of quick, objective data collection and recording to reduce error, as well as monitor and quantify progress.
