The Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) has announced that the “Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation In-home Therapy: A Research Study (VERITAS)” has yielded “positive results,” showing that our Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation (VERA™) is “as effective as traditional physical therapy” when it comes to delivering rehabilitation for patients recovering from total knee replacement (TKR) surgery.
“A virtual assistant with clinical oversight is as effective as traditional physical therapy for patients undergoing knee replacement, according to the results of the VERITAS study led by the DCRI's Janet Prvu Bettger,” DCRI representatives announced via Twitter and a joint news release with Reflexion Health published on October 15.
