A new study published in The Journal of Knee Surgery that examined the benefits of our Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation Assistant (VERA®) platform has come up with some exciting results. Led by researchers from a major academic medical center, the findings revealed a number of benefits associated with VERA centering on cost savings, convenience of care, and the clinician-patient relationship. The study also pointed out that such results may be “lacking” in other, noninteractive telerehab applications.
“This telerehabilitation platform encouraged clinician-patient interaction beyond the hospital setting and offers the advantage of cost savings, convenience, at-home monitoring, and coordination of care, all of which are geared to improve adherence and overall patient satisfaction,” the researchers note.
“Additionally, the biometric data can be used to develop custom physical therapy regimens to assure proper rehabilitation, which is lacking in other telerehabilitation applications that use noninteractive videos that can be watched on mobile devices and tablets.”
