Now more than ever medical practitioners such as physical therapists are benefitting from new methods of remote patient monitoring. For many practices the only in-person visits that have happened for some time have been emergencies, but there are far more cases where a patient may need some kind of ongoing care.
Telehealth has cropped up as a new method of remotely providing care where it’s feasible, and savvy doctors and therapists have done well using it.
But what about between visits? The ability to remotely monitor a patient’s progress, range of motion, or stamina is extremely valuable for ongoing assessment.
Our Therapy Intelligence Cloud Services Allow For Quick Data Assessment & Instruction
By incorporating our motion capture software paired with other offerings like Therapy Intelligence Cloud Services, practitioners can view up-to-date information on their patients in real time, without having to directly interface with the patient.
This form of remote patient monitoring allows practitioners to check in on patient compliance and review their form while performing various stretches and exercises. Beyond that, as both patients and the doctors log into the cloud system for their respective portions of the therapy, doctors can review when (and how often) patients log in and complete exercises.
Range of motion, strength, and endurance
Using state of the art motion capture technology, medical practitioners can use games and other programmatic methods of engagement to gather useful data about patients’ mobility and stamina.
Rather than have to rely on asking patients whether they completed various exercises, or rely on them keeping accurate records of when they did what, our cloud system allows for definitive tracking where doctors can visually review the exercises and make specific notes.
If the patient isn’t using the proper form in the stretches and movements, the doctor can communicate suggestions to help prevent injury or strains, and to ensure the physical therapy progresses as ideally as possible.
