Physio seeks to improve patient recovery time frames and patient adherence to at-home physical therapy programs by tracking patient progress regardless of the wearable used. Patients can use the customized at-home exercise library that can be accessed anywhere with their mobile device, which also allows them to track and manage their pain levels in real time throughout their recovery process.
With this app, patients can also fill out medical questionnaires and progress reports from any place with their mobile device prior to their in-clinic appointments. As the patients use the app, the Physical Therapist will be able to track their progress by scanning through the detailed metrics view and exercises completed, and customize their recovery program based on their performance. Patient progress data can also be potentially used by Physical Therapists for health insurance purposes.
