Who is MAT?

Our mission

At MAT (Movement Assessment Technologies), we love movement ASSESSMENT, the LATEST RESEARCH and OBJECTIVE DATA. We love it so much that we’ve combined these three things together to bring you our world-leading courses and our own Movement Assessment Tool – The MAT. Over the past two years since it’s inception, MAT has run courses in 21 countries, helping 3000+ health and fitness professionals from over 10 different professions bridge the gap between pain and performance and improving their movement assessment, treatment and training skills.

MAT and The MAT is the brainchild of Andrew Lemon and Stephen King following their own struggles in our own practice, feeling like they were guessing with their movement assessment and struggling to easily track progression and objectively determine whether their patients and clients were actually getting better and improving their performance.
Quickly they learnt that this struggle was common to therapists and trainers all around the world, with Universities and higher education institutes often being very slow to implement the latest evidence and assessments into their curriculum. We’re helping this to change, with the MAT currently being integrated in research projects in 7 Universities worldwide.

Now we bring it to you!

We are proud to say that we are now the number one educational courses in the world for evidence based, objective movement assessment and rehabilitation. Our courses provide you with a structured approach to patient and client management, incorporating the latest research on movement analysis, pain and neuroscience helping you treat those you work with as individuals, getting them back to or helping improve the level of performance of what they need, want and love to do, leading to better long term outcomes.

Did you know that MAT is being used in elite sporting environments all around the world such the NFL, NHL, EPL, NRL, AFL, FFA, ERU, ARU and on the men’s and women’s ATP and PGA tours?
