PortableConnect Patient Story: Cheryl
This is Cheryl. She lives in Colchester, Connecticut. Cheryl recently had a total knee replacement. 24 hours after surgery, Cheryl was rehabbing on the all-new ROMTech PortableConnect.
Cheryl: Makes me think of the Batman car. Look at how the wheels move. I think it’s helped my recovery. The physical therapist is telling me I’m a week ahead of where I were expected to be.
Dr. Ryan Nunley: She’s already had fantastic results within the first two to three weeks, with being able to walk a half mile, minimal pain. The swelling is actually better than it was before surgery. And her range of motion increased by 25 degrees. So, to me, this is a phenomenal early result. All of her metrics far exceed where I would typically expect a patient to be at the two to three-week time period.
As Cheryl pedals, the Portable Connect tracks her progress, and pushes key metrics to clinicians for remote monitoring.
Dr. Ryan Nunley: The clinician has excellent updates as to where the patient is on a daily basis, and we can monitor her compliance and outcome. So, to me, I think this is the way forward with regards to the early rehab after knee replacement surgery.
Now, we’re confirming these results in a new pilot study. 10 total knee replacement patients are on the ROMTech PortableConnect in Charlotte, North Carolina.
New pilot study data coming soon. Stay tuned!
And next up: Our IRB-supervised, randomized prospective study will put 250 patients on the ROMTech PortableConnect.
