A Physical Therapy ecosystem championing improved outcomes
How many times have you struggled to complete a physical therapy program agreed with your therapist?
With typical ‘at home’ adherence rates as low as 15%, the chances are the answer is fairly often. Evidence suggests that there are many reasons for this but whatever they may be it remains a significant barrier to successful therapeutic outcomes.
With this top of mind, our clinicians told us they would love a ‘simple’ tech solution to monitor, motivate and engage clients in order to help maximise the likelihood of therapy goals being met.
The Result - LusioMATE - a physical therapy ecosystem, including sensors that attach to any part of the body and a real time feedback dashboard, with remote monitoring capability ideal for tele-rehabilitation. The sensors connect via bluetooth, to an ever growing number of FUN exergames created to entertain and motivate Players through their tailor made PT programs.
With game apps downloadable to all Apple / Android devices and smart TVs, LusioMATE is a super versatile physical therapist in your pocket, usable in clinic, at home , anytime, anywhere.
Who does LusioMATE help?
Physical Therapist in your pocket!
LusioMATE is specifically designed to drive greater adherence to PT goals both within, but especially outside of, the clinician appointment. As part of a home exercise program, clinicians are able to monitor progress and update Movement Goals remotely via the in App dashboard.
The small size of the proprietary Lusio Sensors enables the motivation of both Gross and Fine Movement Goals, giving LusioMATE a distinct and unique advantage over most other wearable and / or motion sensors on the market.
LusioMATE is easy to use and super flexible, and with the LusioMATE hardware pack small enough to pop in a bag and take anywhere. It truly is a physical therapist in your pocket.
Adherence is Key
LusioMATE’s genesis came about via a Physical Therapist looking outside the box to solve the problem of a young client of theirs not being motivated to do their physical therapy.
Its evolution, and that of Lusio Rehab more generally, has stayed focussed on the paradigm of driving PT program adherence. On this journey we’ve come to understand how nuanced the reasons are for the generally accepted level of 'at home' adherence to PT to be in the low range of between 15% and 50%.
Our commitment to help improve on this statistic, and thereby patient outcomes, will remain steadfast and at the core of what we do, and we are proud that many of the academically researched barriers to adherence are specifically addressed within the LusioMATE ecosystem.
Games for all to engage with
At the heart of the LusioMATE ecosystem is a suite of FUN and ENGAGING games designed to play their part in motivating Players to achieve their Movement Goals. Whether the Player is 4 years old or 94, there’s a game to pique their interest and take them on a FUN and ENGAGING journey as they work on completing their PT program. Many of the games double up as both exergames and cognigames as they can be set to work on agreed Movement Goals - whether they be Gross or Fine motor - but also challenge the Player’s cognitive ability.Game Reviews
