Digital screening via a sensor and app for function-based aftercare - Orthelligent is a practical, location-independent and cost-effective measuring system that is used for prevention and rehabilitation. It uses different tests to analyse certain motion sequences and displays the results graphically. In this way, the current actual state can be determined, both after an injury and during normal training.
- Comparison of healthy and injured leg
- Monitoring the patient’s personal healing progression
- Patients better informed and more motivated
- Quality of result is ensured
- Evaluate test results locally on tablet in the cloud
- Suitable for implementing function-based post treatment every day
Small sensor - big impact
The Orthelligent movement sensor analyses movement sequences on the lower extremities while the connected app evaluates the results and displays them in graphic form. These evaluations provide more precise conclusions about the healing process after a knee or ankle injury. The app evalutes the results from the different tests and compares the patient’s healthy leg to the injured one. The Orthelligent Pro app guides the patient through the different movement tests, which are then evaluated immediately. This allows you as the physician or therapist to draw conclusions on the development of certain motor functions, for example. This insight helps with keeping an eye on the recovery progress and the effect of treatment methods used. Another development of the app now makes it possible to manage any number of patients in a data base.
What is measured?
The current tests are grouped into three categories: Range of movement, co-ordination and strength/speed. The tests may be carried out at different times.
Range of motion
The range of motion of a joint is measured in degrees. In the case of the knee joint, the full extension is described as 0 degrees and is important for the natural gait. The max. flexion is on average 130°. In younger people, it is up to 160°. A human, for example, needs a flexion up to 70° to walk on a normal flat surface. For climbing stairs, a flexion of 80 to 90° is required. 120° flexion are required so you can get out of a deep chair or stand up from a toilet seat. A minimum of 110° is required for cycling.
Coordination is the ability to control and harmonise movements. This must often be re-learned after an injury. Balance and the sensitivity to depth are important for correct muscle control. These senses must be mastered again before the next phase of strength/endurance can begin.
If an athlete wants to go back to playing his sport after an injury, strength/quickness is especially important here. Here the possible deficits can be pointed out in order to, among other things, prevent another injury.
