Technology-enabled Home-based Physical Therapy
Physical therapy (PT) facilitates faster and more complete recovery for a wide range of injuries. However, the effectiveness of outpatient PT is limited due to low adherence and inaccurate execution.
Partners HealthCare Connected Health is piloting a clinical research study to assess a technology-based physical therapy solution for patients with ACL injuries. The solution, which uses Microsoft Kinect, offers patients real-time feedback on PT exercises to ensure that exercises are performed correctly and safely, thereby increasing their efficacy, reducing recovery time and lowering the risk of re-injury.
This study is funded by Reflexion Health, the developers of this technology.
