Dr. Feli CalduchThe shoulder joint is one of the most complicated joints in the human body. Shoulder joint motion is complex, and recovery from a dislocation can take months to regain normal function. Since the shoulder is such an unique joint, and because it is the primary complaint among patients who visit Corporacion Mutua, we decided to start using Biotrak as a rehabilitation device.
Patients find the system very attractive, enjoyable and challenging. Once they familiarize with it, they do their exercises with ease and efficiently; they even claim to be more motivated than in a regular gym.
The system is easy to use. It makes easy to monitor the patient’s sessions while obtaining statistical graphs of their evolution. The system is very objective, allowing us to assess the results before assigning a new set of exercises. We can objectively measure the precision of the exercises and the patient´s progress. Another advantage of Biotrak is that the physician can control the time, speed and repetition of the exercises. Moreover, the evaluation is based on established international clinical scales.
Because of the difficulty in treating shoulder injuries, and the difficulty of obtaining objective data of the evolution of the patient during the therapy, we decided to create the first Biotrak shoulder rehabilitation team.
Biotrak increases the patient´s motivation, and their adherence to rehabilitation exercises. The sessions are enjoyable and incentivize the patient to take an active role in their own healthcare.
We see a good future for this product.
