Apollo Clinic is also conducting regular camps across its societies & clinics of AI-based posture assessment tests that have been developed by the Fix Health’s team of engineers from IIT Bombay & BITS Pilani. Patients visiting the clinics have to simply pose in 2 positions while an expert, using a mobile phone captures the patient’s posture & movement through the Fix Health app. The app then automatically assesses the postural health status of the patient using AI & delivers the report on WhatsApp in less than 1 minute.
