It's time now for the business of health brought to you by. Hendrix Regional Health well who's your patients are testing a new app that uses the Apple watch to help them prepare for and recover from hip and knee replacements Marhsall based Zimmer biomed partnered with Apple to create. The my mobility app and business of health reporter Kylie Valletta shows us why as surgeons and developers believe it could revolutionize how patients recover from two of the most common surgeries in the country Kylie thank you Gary traditionally a patient would go for physical therapy. Sessions after a knee or hip replacement but the app replaces that process using the power of Technology Zimmer Biomet has launched one of the. Biggest enrollment studies in the history of orthopedics to test the apps use compared to conventional recovery. Methods here to tell us how. This could change tomorrow standard of care is vice president of connected health strategy Ted Spooner and dr. Wesley Lackey an orthopedic. Surgeon at the Midwest Center for joint replacement in Indianapolis thank you both for coming to the show Thank You. Ted let's start with you I think but looking at this app it does impact the pre-op process but most. People really notice the changes it makes to. The post-op process so tell us what does post-op look like now using this app and the watch so you can imagine that there's a lot of anxiety for patients you know as they go through the the process of getting ready for surgery and then have surgery and one of the biggest. Ways to reduce their anxiety is make sure they know what to do the watch is something that they. Can wear everyday that gives them a list of things to do every day that's been prescribed by their surgeon and then as they check those list items off the. Surgeon is reported that and the care team has reported about the patient's progress so it really helps keep them on track and I think more than anything else that helps them feel that they're informed about. What they need to do and the progress that they're making themselves and where they need to go you know tomorrow and next week and as far as the movement it tracks steps stairs how much time you're spending sitting how much time you're standing right those are all measures of mobility right and you know every. Day you probably take for granted that you get up out of bed and you know walk in the kitchen and make yourself fist and butt every time you do that you're obviously exercising big parts of certain to your lower extremities but your whole body in your heart and this is a way. For the doctor really see that that's happening that that. Functional behavior that the patient wants to return to and obviously wants to return to without pain is something that the doc can track and this is a way for them to do that dr. Lackey your clinic already has patients in the study or looking to enroll hundreds more what are the benefits both sides of the equation he touched on. Some of them. For the patients but also for the surgeon and the surgical team yeah we definitely. Think it's going to be a win-win AMC jr. our goal has been to take the pain out of joint replacement for everybody involved and that's from the first phone call to the ease of scheduling appointment outpatient surgery partial knee replacement and it goes on and on the patients have their surgeons. Cell phone number in our practice but there's still like he said a bit of anxiety the patient most of the time. In their experience is at home on their own and they don't know what is normal and what's not and so we think that having this connectedness connectedness between patients and their surgical care team is really going to make them feel more comfortable and more confident from the surgeons side having this surveillance on all our patients that when they're not. With us is going to be a huge game-changer for us to know who's doing well and who we need to contact and help out along the way so this takes work typically done by a physical therapist and it seems like it shifts that to the surgeon and the surgical team and really the patient so what. Are there any risks or challenges associated with that there are definitely some challenges as we kind of change you know the transition of care currently physical therapists do work with all of our patients but it's mostly around the time of surgery and a lot. Of the exercises post-op are fairly straightforward and patients are doing them on their own anyways and so this app has you know they can do it along with the therapists and we'll still again be able to survey our patients and be know who's struggling and those are the patients that will. Need that extra help from a therapist and Ted we have just a few. Seconds left Tech is penetrating every aspect of the medical industry is this going to the. New way to recover using these wearable you know it's not it's not just orthopedics but orthopedics is especially applicable to this kind of technology measuring movement and measuring the. Kind of functional way that we operate every day and doing that in a consumer wearable that also is a health measuring device means orthopedics is a really great place for us to to deploy. This I think you'll see it more than knee and hip soon as we take it into other categories but certainly the study is you know groundbreaking and and the way that we see patients and work with Doc's for their care.
