What is it?
PT Health Study is a collaboration to develop a system which detects, interprets, and minimizes the impact of acute distress/illness using existing wearable technology.
Why we're doing it
We envision a world in which physical therapists are the provider of choice dealing with chronic disease, illness, and inflammatory conditions.
We believe if we develop & test the systems to support our early data - we can remotely screen, monitor, and coach our communities to decrease their risk & increase their health.
The COVID-19 crisis has created a situation in which remote distress/illness monitoring is critical for decreasing burden on the medical system & to maintain physical therapists' ability to serve their patients from a distance.
- Combining modern wearable trackers with a data analytics dashboard (CISRS*) that integrates health metrics into a platform for PTs to monitor.
- Early data & research shows this filter can identify high risk patients and trigger timely provider outreach & recovery management.
How you can help
- Get a compatible Garmin device & join the community of 'subjects' - users are needed to refine the system.
- Subjects will be added to a community forum where PTHealthStudy insights will be shared.
