New Hybrid Remote Patient Monitoring System Feasible and Motivating Following Total Knee Arthroplast
New Insights into Rehabilitation
Approximately 90% of recovery from TKA occurs outside the clinic, when a patient’s activity level and exercise regimen play a significant role in the rehabilitation process. The proprietary RPM system from FocusMotion gives patients real-time motion feedback through an avatar, charting progress made each day, and sends users notifications reminding them to exercise or take the weekly self-assessment. This innovation may provide several benefits to patients, providers and payers, including increased patient engagement with rehabilitation, better insight into negative outcomes, and a cost-effective and user-friendly means to collect, store and share the information.
