DyCare has developed tech solutions that aid in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological disorders and musculoskeletal injuries.
Patients may require rehab therapy for brain or nerve conditions, muscle or bone injuries and following operations. Traditionally, rehabilitation requires regular specialist input with often limited technology to measure progress. The time spent in treatment combined with less than ideal injury and progress measurements can make rehabilitation a frustrating, expensive, and time-consuming process.
DyCare, a biotech startup based in Spain, is advancing rehabilitation technology to aid in increasing the quality of life for patients through the optimisation of physical therapy.
One of their solutions is ReHub, a digital platform that takes the patient from the initial assessment of their injury to the end of their physical therapy. During the initial assessment, the rehabilitation physician uses biomechanical sensors to evaluate the problem area. These sensors are used to assess muscle strength and range of movement in a precise way. Based on this information, a physiotherapist creates a fully personalised rehabilitation program that the patient can do at home with the smart exercise kit.
The dashboard tracks the patient’s progress for easy monitoring by the physiotherapist. The patient can access the dashboard at any time and is aided through their movements using the home kit, which provides continuous feedback. Hence, the patient knows exactly how to undertake each exercise.
