BROOKFIELD, CT, May 25, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — A clinical study recently published shows that the PortableConnect adaptive telemed technology manufactured by ROMTech® outperforms traditional post-operative therapy. This technology is especially beneficial for patients recovering from total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
The PortableConnect makes use of telemedicine-enabled, home-based physical rehabilitation. It facilitates remote clinical supervision and monitoring throughout the patient’s entire recovery journey.
The new study observed and compared patient recovery metrics at 2, 6, and 12 weeks after TKA surgery. Patients treated with the PortableConnect showed better functionality and a faster recovery rate in comparison to patients receiving only standard treatment.
The study’s key findings indicate that the PortableConnect can improve recovery times by up to 50 percent, decrease pain during the recovery process, improve range of motion quickly, achieve a high level of patient compliance and satisfaction, reduce the use of prescription painkillers and lessen the cost of care.
ROMTech has announced the findings of this study, and emphasizes their PortableConnect technology’s potential to dramatically improve the overall patient experience for the 7 million Americans who currently have hip or knee replacements. This technology has helped patients recover quickly by improving their range of motion and facilitating overall recovery.
“ROMTech’s product is taking patient recovery to the next level by offering at-home treatment that helps patients save money and recover more thoroughly than with traditional therapy,” said the CEO and co-founder of ROM Technologies, Peter Arn, in a recent interview with MenaFN.com .
The PortableConnect employs ROMTech’s patented adjustable pedal technology, which allows patients to begin working on their range of motion right after surgery. Starting therapeutic motion early is critical for a rapid recovery.
Patients nationwide can now take advantage of the PortableConnect, and already more than 35,000 patients have completed post-surgical rehabilitation using this device. The company’s website features an interactive map showing which surgeons are currently prescribing the PortableConnect.
