SWORD’s Digital Therapist recovers patients faster and better than traditional physical therapy
Mar 8, 2019 • 2 min read
Over the past years, our entire team has been working relentlessly to get to the findings we are now very proud to share with you: patients recovering with our Digital Therapist at home under remote supervision of our clinical teams recover faster and better than patients resorting to conventional physical therapy. Not only that, the benefits of our combined human+machine physical therapy solution are longer lasting than those presented in traditional physical therapy. Forbes explained the motivation behind our research very sagely: An AI physical therapist guides patients through a number of exercises, using the trackers to give feedback in real time (...). The exercises are set by a remote team of human clinicians, who’ll check in periodically, and they’re covered by a number of insurance companies worldwide. (...) But pretty much everyone is doing something “AI” these days, so the real test of its effectiveness is the patient data. It’s looking good. The fact is, when it comes to the Digital Therapist, clinical validation is not a mere formality. That is why our teams are continuously assessing its effectiveness and why we always have ongoing studies to objectively discern what benefits we are bringing to patients.
