What makes the difference between a three-week recovery time and a six-week recovery time? Between a highly effective rehab cycle, and a less than optimal one? The answer largely depends on the extent to which physical therapists and patients can collaborate. This is true during injury rehabilitation, advanced athletic training, or stroke recovery.
In each of these therapy scenarios, gait assessment plays a central role in the pace and progress of rehab. Fortunately, there are many tools today that help automate certain aspects of gait assessment and facilitate patient/therapist collaboration. In our last post, we took a closer look at Stride Smart, our integrated gait assessment technology.
