First To Market Orthopedic Post-Surgical Wearable Device
Market Watch has just published an article that discusses TracPatch’s entry into the wearable device market. TracPatch is expected to add tremendous value to not only patients, but also to the orthopedic industry.
Dr. Shervin Oskouei, MD, Dept. of Orthopedic Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine, said “TracPatch can add tremendous value to the entire episode of care. This technology allows a healthcare provider insight into never-before-seen data for post-surgical rehabilitation. Being able to monitor your patient’s range of motion progress and exercise compliance daily is a game changer. TracPatch is making proactive care easy, so every patient has an excellent outcome.”
Curt Wiedenhoefer, President of Consensus Orthopedics, says, “In this new value-based healthcare environment, to be able to combine the exploding adoption of wearable technology and apply it to the total joint industry is going to revolutionize the way we deliver care. For the first time in the history of joint surgery, we are using microelectronics to passively capture valuable post-surgical recovery information. Now, healthcare providers have objective data for every patient, especially during those critical six weeks of post-acute care.”
