Benefits to Both Patients and Providers
Used by physical therapists with their patients both in the clinic setting and remotely, the PT Genie system guides patients through their exercises while measuring their progress. Through wearable sensors and a simple app on a tablet, PT Genie enables patients to continue their therapy from home with ongoing feedback from their therapist.
The PT Genie system enables healthcare providers to better measure quality patient outcomes and show value following medical procedures and recovery. Data on patient activity and progress integrates seamlessly into the patient medical record for analysis. Use of the device encourages patient compliance in sticking with their therapy.
