Increasing Patient Empowerment in TKA-Recovery Via a Mobile Application: an Observational Study

4 pagesPublished: October 27, 2019

Abstract

During the last few years, total knee arthroplasty has evolved from basic surgery to restore basic function, to a fast-track procedure to relief pain and get the patients back to a high level of activity.. However, the way physiotherapy is performed, remained the same. This paper presents the results of 185 patients that used a mobile health application to track their recovery. Adherence and clinical results were evaluated and reported. Our study demonstrated an excellent patient acceptance and compliance of the outpatient autonomous recovery app. Patient satisfaction was outstanding, and functional recovery was securely within conventional range.
