I frequently use this to discourage multilevel sales pitches, stating that I will not be involved unless they can be demonstrated to be better than placebo, alternative products and that the difference is great enough to warrant the cost and any risks.

They allow us to determine what basic movement patterns are limited; impairing performance, draining energy, creating overstress injury and risk of traumatic injury.
The assessment can be used to direct appropriate corrective exercise selection.
