The Valedo device consist of two wireless movement sensors, which capture and monitor the body movement in 3D. The two sensors are attached to the chest and lower back and connect to the computer, tablet or phone via Bluetooth technology. After downloading the software patients enter a virtual world and can direct their avatar through interactive landscapes by performing specific movements incorporated into numerous motivational therapeutic exercises. All movements and exercises target one or a combination of therapeutic goals which are based on proven and certified back treatment programs. The Valedo keeps track of the development and progress of the pacients training and presents it in an easy-to-report. All information about  movement quality and performance is recordered in the report, which enable insight into the quality and quantity of the training.
