Our mission is to reformulate and restructure the rehabilitation process to provide effective, efficient, and personalized solutions.
ErgoRehab is a software technology and analytics product that produces the first truly personalized rehabilitation training programs.
We provide rehabilitation software to Clinicians and physical therapists to help design rehabilitation programs that will be more effective and efficient.
Rehabilitation today is problematic:
Rehab programs are set-up based on general guidelines from physicians, simple evaluations performed by the physical therapist (e.g., knee extensions on isokinetics machines), and general know-how and experience.
This leads to a huge degree of uncertainty with therapists disagreeing even on the TYPE of therapy that a patient should follow!
Consequently, the results are often unsatisfactory for the patient (satisfaction rates at 25%), there is low patient attendance and retention over the course of the treatment, and there is a high re-injury rate especially for athletes (40% over the following year).
Physical therapist also spend too much time for each patient often changing the therapy as they try to accommodate for the differences between patients.
Rehabilitation clinics have larger expenses per patient and low satisfaction rates.
Insurance agencies are stressed from the large costs of Rehabilitation Clinics ($30b in the US and growing at 8.5%).
ErgoRehab is based on modified versions of powerful algorithms developed by ErgoSensePro for professional athletes. The key technologies of the ErgoRehab approach are:
1. Extensive patient evaluation in terms movement. Ten simple evaluation tests are performed and can be combined with isokinetic machine data.
2. Patient output metrics for an intended rehabilitation exercise. The information from the evaluation tests are fed to the ErgoRehab algorithms which generate a large number of output metrics (more than twenty) for each specific movement intended as a rehabilitation exercise.
So with ErgoRehab we go from the current information-poor evaluation and rehab exercise design to an information rich approach with ten evaluation metrics and more than twenty output metrics.
Based on the output metrics we can
1. predict how the patient will respond to a given rehabilitation program
2. compare patients in a scientific and objective manner
3. develop personalized rehabilitation programs depending on their condition and needs
ErgoRehab is a perfect fit to the Quad Impact Challenge.
It is a Win Win Win Win solution = Quad Win!
Win for patients - because they now follow a personalized effective rehabilitation program that best addresses their condition and needs .
Win for physical therapists - as they follow a more structured, efficient, and scientific procedure less guesswork and empiricism.
Win for the rehabilitation center - as they can handle more patients in less time with improved results.
Win for us - as our mission has always been to transfer the results of ErgoSensePro to the Healthcare sector.
