From dealing with musculoskeletal disorders to complex poly-trauma, encountering cases of rheumatic hand to joint reconstruction, orthopaedic centres have seen it all.
While many orthopaedics specialise in areas like the spine, knee, ankle, foot, shoulder or hip, the base remains the same. It begins with diagnosis, proceeds to prescriptions and rehabilitation and concludes with making sure no future complications arise.
While the recovery takes up the bulk of the time, it’s the diagnosis and assessments that project a timeline. And that’s where physios face the most hassles. From equipment issues to the lack of substantial data, many cases can become unnecessarily tricky to understand. And while physios are more than qualified enough to deal with them, they would love it if someone designed equipment that solved at least some of these issues. This is where we at Ashva, step in to fill those boots.
Orthopaedic departments handle various types of patients – from athletes to accountants and teenagers to senior citizens. While the issues they face may be similar, each patient depending on their age and profession will have a different recovery rate. Since our equipment focuses highly on statistics, we can help you understand demographic recovery rates by assisting in generating case studies based on the type of patients and assessments you conduct! These studies are immensely useful references in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of future cases.
While demographic understanding gives physios an edge in detailing a more effective treatment, it still wouldn’t solve the most common problem – patient trust. For example, at least 40% of surgeries that happen, take place after consulting a second opinion! Fortunately, we minimise the extent of the problem for you. Our quantified reports help patients feel assured about the diagnosis, enabling a healthier patient-physio relationship. This objectively removes the need for patients to search for a second opinion.
The same quantification solves another vital issue for you – patient adherence. Not just concerning sticking to the recovery plan, but abiding by it for the whole duration! For example, patients who’ve had Total Knee Replacement Surgery (TKR) are put into a rehabilitation program of around 8 weeks. And yet, many patients drop out after week 4! However, with the help of your timely assessments and our quantified reports, patients can now numerically witness, making them more likely to stick to your recovery plan.
Both our devices, Fitknees and Fitmust, aren’t just data-driven marvels in physiotherapy equipment. Our documentation superiority along with greater efficiency than conventional equipment means we generate premium reports at a relatively lower cost. This is a handsome prospect for patients, who are even willing to pay more for a better assessment. The increase in the volume of patients and their satisfaction means that your department will generate more revenue along with positive feedback.
Another application of our equipment can be seen in the commonly organised knee camps. Since we can and have previously generated hundreds of instantaneous reports within a day, should you choose to conduct such AI-based knee care camps, irrespective of the volume, the quality of assessments will hold its gold standard. This could be an additional source of revenue, where people are given consultation free of cost but the report is charged.
From quantifying assessments to documenting them and creating a healthy patient-physio bond to effectively monetizing reports, Ashva takes care of most of a physio’s hurdles. We take pride in helping you unburden some responsibilities so that both, the centres and patients benefit from what we strive to achieve – data-driven physiotherapy.
