Patients with physical impairments and disabilities are treated at a distance to improve and restore functional abilities and quality of life.
Fremont, CA: Physical Rehabilitation is undergoing significant development due to advances in medical technology and greater experimentation. Physical Rehabilitation is in high demand, and it appears that there are not enough skilled physical therapists to match the current demand. Fortunately, new medical technology is picking up the slack. In the meanwhile, many of the "tried and true" treatments remain effective.
WizeCare, a health technology company that is pioneering the delivery of intelligent, accessible, and exciting physical therapy sessions directly to patients' homes, is leveraging the power of AI movement detection, big data analysis, and deep learning to provide more intuitive and engaging rehabilitation experiences that get tailored to patient needs.
The cloud-based solution comprises an interactive patient application that provides virtual reality video sessions while utilizing MoveAI ™ Technology to detect movement and offer real-time feedback without additional sensors or hardware. "Using AI, the notion of in-person, clinic-based treatment can be improved upon with the ability to measure and analyze a range of parameters that physicians and clinical personnel simply cannot achieve outside a specialized movement lab," stated Shai David, CTO and Co-Founder Solution Architect and Algorithm Developer of WizeCare.
Such a system, which automates and evaluates patients' movement patterns to expose their basic impairments, replaces the facility movement lab. The obtained data is then analyzed to provide the best possible intervention for orthopedic, neurological, cardiac, and movement issues.
The five characteristics that determine the Technology's success are the range of motion, speed, jerk, a symmetric view of performance, and workout accuracy per repetition.
"As a former physical therapist for more than 15 years, patients have regarded face-to-face rehabilitation sessions as cumbersome, impersonal, and challenging. Using this Technology, feedback and knowledge are shared in real-time about patients' individual performance,'' stated Roy Shteren, CEO of WizeCare.
