Physical therapy and rehabilitation for rheumatic, neurological or orthopedic pathologies present an ever - increasing challenge in today’s healthcare sector. At present, treatment plans can be cumbersome and a slow recovery can be disempowering for patients. Physiotherapy can be found in most about all healthcare fields, while its complexity comes with the requirement of the treatment’s adaptability to each patient.
From patients, to physiotherapists or health insurers, the process of physiotherapy can benefit from improvements due to the increased number of patients not complying with the prescribed exercises, prolonging recovery time and requiring higher costs from the health sector.
