Patient Testimonial: Antonio A., “If I ever undergo another surgery, I’ll demand to use the Digital Therapist again”

Antonio runs a busy life. When we called him for a 6 pm interview, he asked if we could make it quick because he had to leave for work. António is a waste collector, and heavy jobs like his don’t comply with nine-to-five schedules. Antonio spends his nights hopping on and off a garbage truck, so things looked quite dim when he had to undergo knee surgery. Antonio relies on his knees to perform his job quickly and effectively, up and down from the truck again and again for eight hours in a row. On top of that, Antonio lives 30 miles away from the physical therapy center he was supposed to attend. “The insurance company would cover the costs, but I would still have to go back and forth, I’d easily spend three hours a day for one therapy session.” Antonio didn't want to waste his precious time, so he decided to use it more wisely. As he puts it himself "I could take the time it would take me to have just one session in a traditional therapy facility and have three physical therapy sessions with the Digital Therapist.
