Pioneering digital musculoskeletal platform launches to accurately measure patients’ rehabilitation performance
IncludeHealth, a digital health company that delivers musculoskeletal care and training, has launched IncludeConnect, a “revolutionary” musculoskeletal platform that brings digital capabilities to any equipment used for rehabilitation in order to accurately measure patients’ progress.
IncludeConnect was developed through pilot programmes and feedback from practitioners to enhance the way providers deliver care and training.
The platform connects, digitises and integrates any piece of strength or cardio equipment into a medical-grade software called the IncludeCloud, allowing quantitative and qualitative measurement with feedback to drive better outcomes.
“IncludeConnect is both powerful and practical, allowing any and all equipment to be connected, digitized and integrated into one cohesive, medical-grade platform,” said Ryan Eder, CEO and Founder of IncludeHealth. “Unlike other commercial and consumer grade connected equipment, IncludeConnect is a comprehensive musculoskeletal solution that provides rich and relevant data sets to healthcare, to drive better outcomes and next-generation care in physical therapy, occupational therapy, performance training, and general wellness.”
IncludeConnect consists of small sensors and connected tablets running the IncludeCloud software. These sensors pair with battery-powered kiosks that house each tablet and connect all of a facility’s equipment.
Cloud-based exercise sequences are generated in seconds and sent to each kiosk. Entire programmes are then autonomously sent delivering machine setup, exercise instruction and live guidance.
Sensors collect objective, outcome-based data during a workout and passively send it to the IncludeCloud for review. Beyond traditional repetition counting and distance or time tracking, IncludeConnect measures variables including force, power, velocity, and range of motion to both quantify and qualify health and performance.
Providers can securely view each client’s profile to review compliance, details of the data, and analyse progress over time. This empowers trainers and providers to expand capacity, objectively validate progress, and deliver a richer client experience with improved outcomes.
Additionally, IncludeConnect enables healthcare providers to collect data from multiple pieces of equipment simultaneously to provide a cohesive experience for patients.
IncludeConnect is available through a subscription and is suitable for any facility or network that helps people to be more active and healthier through the use of equipment.
