PT Genie is a wearable device that keeps patients connected with their physical therapist when doing exercises from home. The patient wears small sensors while they exercise that send data back to the therapist to monitor progress and help when needed. Through an interactive, virtual reality avatar on a tablet, patients are guided to perform exercises correctly. It provides real-time feedback and an ongoing connection between patient and therapist to ensure the patient is successfully recovering.
Use of PT Genie has helped therapists accelerate recovery for patients. Preliminary studies showed that when using PT Genie, patients recovered 60 percent faster, their pain was reduced by 50 percent and they reported a 70 percent increase in satisfaction with their PT program. Use of the device also encourages patient compliance in sticking with therapy protocols. PT Genie has demonstrated the ability to improve patient compliance from 34% to 78%.
