Portable Connect ® is a revolutionary technology designed to provide therapy for orthopedic patients to help them recover quickly. Orthopedic surgery recovery can take a long if the proper treatment is not used.
Traditional physical therapies have existed for a long time but have little efficacy in speeding up the recovery process. ROM tech Portable Connect ® is now changing the way postoperative orthopedic care is done.
It combines telemedicine technology with orthopedic innovation to produce unrivaled outcomes. Once the surgery is done and the patient is discharged, the device is delivered to the patient’s home by a member of the ROMtech ® team who has the requisite knowledge to set it up. The device is set up in line with a patient’s needs, and the patient can undergo a customizable rehabilitation process.
Patients delight in recovering at home, thus enjoying maximum privacy and convenience. Portable Connect ® thus eliminates a painstakingly cumbersome and costly process of traditional physical therapy where a patient has to be admitted to a hospital to undergo therapy physically. An avalanche of patient testimonies attests to the fact that this technology is effective in aiding the recovery journey of orthopedic patients.
One of the patients who had a total knee replacement surgery says that their experience with ROM tech ® was astounding. The Portable Connect ® helped her knee recover quickly in a matter of weeks. The patient regained her range of motion in a few weeks, and the pain had greatly reduced.
One of the great benefits of the ROM tech ® device is the ability to reduce patients’ over reliance on narcotics and painkillers. Many orthopedic patients using traditional physical therapies must be put on painkillers such as opioids.
Unfortunately, prolonged usage of opioids is detrimental to patients’ very health. It can lead to addiction, making patients feel a strong urge to use them perpetually. With ROM tech devices, the need to rely on these drugs is significantly eliminated.
How ROM tech Portable Connect ® Works
A physician first examines whether a patient is the right candidate for Portable Connect ®. Some of the things they will examine are the severity and nature of the orthopedic injury. If they see fit for a patient to be put on the device, a ROM tech field clinician delivers the device to the patient’s home and sets it up on the patient.
The Portable Connect ® makes therapeutic movement within a healthy range of motion. The ROM tech device consists of adjustable pedal technology that can be adjusted to a right pedaling radius to suit individual patient needs. The gentle, easy, and frequent sessions enable the body to heal and recover.
The patient can do 3-5 sessions per day, and the whole treatment plan can last for 3-6 weeks. Besides measuring the patient’s motion range, the ROM tech ® tracks other key health metrics and then disseminates the information to a doctor located in a remote place.
Depending on patients’ progress, the routines can be tweaked daily to accommodate patient progress or correct a setback. The technology has proved to be a game changer for personalized exercises for knee replacement patients and even other orthopedic conditions.
The communication between the device and the doctor happens in real-time, meaning the patient’s progress is thoroughly monitored throughout the rehabilitation process. The device’s beauty is that it utilizes telemedicine technologies that provide two-way real-time communication between the patient and doctor.
This greatly bolsters the efficacy of the rehabilitation process, which traditional postoperative care finds hard to achieve. The device produces way better results compared to other types of therapies.
What Orthopedic Patients Can Expect Upon Using Portable Connect ®
Patients can expect better outcomes using one of the most cutting-edge rehabilitation technology. Patients start to recover right from day one when they are placed on the device, and what’s more, the treatment is affordable.
ROM tech ® clinicians understand that each case may vary from another, and so they are committed to delivering personalized care. Doctors keep a tab on patient progress, and any change that needs to be made is communicated properly using tele therapy.
Patients need to regain their mobility in good time because it determines overall recovery trajectory and ROM tech ® makes this happen. Traditional therapy methods are slow and do not come anywhere near what the device can achieve in a fortnight.
Managing the stress of therapy outcomes can be hard when using traditional physical therapies. It can get even worse if no improvement is happening. Some patients skip sessions because of the stress that comes with it.
The good news is that Portable Connect ® is a different kettle of fish, as patients can manage their sessions right from the comfort of their homes. Statistics and testimonies from patients about using the ROM technology ™ lend credence to the efficacy of the technology.
Pilot studies show that 50% of PortableConnect ® Patients regain range of motion two weeks after operation compared to 12% of patients on standard rehab care.
On average, the Portable Connect ® patients regain 112° range of motion by the second week of the device. This is an impressive improvement and is not far from the motion range of a normal human being.
