With the impacts of so many people working from home and in isolation, technologies such as telehealth are helping to provide better access to healthcare for everyone, as well as revolutionising the way we capture and use data to support clinicians being able to help their patients, and track their progress.
Physiotherapy is one area of health care that is now able to assist most people via Virtual Reality technology to get better, or to undertake a rehabilitation program, at home.
XRHealth is a company that has recently made revolutionary breakthroughs that have made having to do physiotherapy as much fun as it can be, which in turn leads to faster results, because most of us are more likely to keep up our exercise schedule if we enjoy doing it.
“Virtual Reality (VR) treatment delivers a smarter and more enjoyable recovery, exercising your stiff and sore joints, or restarting that injury rehab program is now easy and can be quite entertaining,” says says XRHealth’s Director of Operations in Australia, Esme Naidoo.
“We are really excited to launch our first Australian clinic, which offers fun and engaging physiotherapy via telehealth and VR technology.
“This is how the system works: after an online consultation, all patients receive a tailored treatment plan and access to their own healthcare portal which displays data to better inform them of their condition and symptoms. We combine the application of digital health with personal consultation to offer our XRHealth patients the best chance of recovery.”
Esme says that by using XRHealth’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)-registered medical device technology, patients can be treated for a wide range of physical conditions in their comfort of their own surroundings, including whiplash, shoulder, neck and spinal arthritis, bursitis, rotator cuff tendinopathy, frozen shoulder, hip and knee injuries, and postural problems.
XR Health’s technology can also offer treatment for a range of other conditions such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, stroke rehabilitation, and cerebral Palsy.
While the launch in Australia is focused on physiotherapy, the company is in the process of expanding their offering to include mental health, occupational therapy, cognitive therapy and more.
