BROOKFIELD, CT, May 25, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — A recently-published clinical study found that the ROMTech® PortableConnect adaptive telemed technology outperforms traditional post-operative therapy among patients recovering from total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
The PortableConnect delivers telemedicine-enabled, home-based physical rehabilitation and facilitates remote clinical supervision and monitoring throughout the patient’s entire recovery journey.
The new study checked patient recovery metrics at 2, 6, and 12 weeks after TKA surgery and found that patients receiving treatment with the PortableConnect had better functionality and recovered more quickly than patients receiving standard treatment only.
Key findings from the study show that the PortableConnect can:
– Improve recovery times by up to 50 percent
– Make recovery less painful
– Improve range of motion significantly quicker
– Achieve unparalleled patient compliance and satisfaction
– Decrease use of prescription painkillers
– Cut the cost of care
ROM Technologies, more commonly known as ROMTech, has announced the findings of this study, highlighting that their PortableConnect technology has potential to dramatically improve the lives of the 7 million Americans currently living with hip or knee replacements. In particular, the PortableConnect is helping patients get better faster with improved range of movement and superior overall recovery.
“ROMTech’s product is taking patient recovery to the next level by offering at-home treatment that helps patients save money and recover more thoroughly than with traditional therapy,” said Peter Arn, ROM Technologies co-founder and CEO, “Being able to complete treatment at home also improves the quality of life for patients who find travel challenging, and allows patients to complete multiple therapy sessions per day instead of only a few sessions per week at a treatment facility.”
ROMTech’s patented adjustable pedal technology allows patients to work on their range of motion early on in the recovery process, typically the same day as surgery. Starting therapeutic motion early is critical to rapid recovery.
The PortableConnect is now available to patients nationwide, and more than 35,000 patients have completed post-surgical rehabilitation using the device. The company’s website features an interactive map showing patients which surgeons are currently prescribing the PortableConnect.
ROMTech has established itself as a leader in the world of medtech, and CEO Peter Arn has made it the company’s priority to bring to market next-gen medical devices that harness the power of digital technology to help patients across the world. Recognizing the value of at-home care for patients recovering from orthopedic surgery, ROMTech works closely with surgeon partners to ensure its technology meets the specific needs of the people who need it most.
