Mobile-based post-operative rehabilitation exercises for UCSF Joint Replacement patients
UCSF has teamed up with CARE to set the standard for the future of mobile rehabilitation. Currently implemented by the UCSF Joint Replacement program and created by physical therapists, the app provides a personalized website and personalized physical therapy/rehabilitation protocols for patients. The app is incredibly comprehensive by providing information to patients about their surgery, their surgeon, and lists the exercises they should be performing week-by-week after surgery with complete video demonstrations.
When a patient is enrolled he/she will only see information and post-operative protocols that have been specifically selected by their surgeon. The app itself consists of the sections described above. Pre- and post-operative information is available to patients, and the post-operative physical therapy protocol is clearly organized for patients to reference either at home or at the gym. Overall, the application has been well implemented
*Requires enrollment by the UCSF Joint Replacement program.
