Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. announced four data presentations on the clinical value of mymobility® with Apple Watch®, a first-of-a-kind remote care management platform designed to help healthcare professionals remotely support and guide patients as they prepare for and recover from orthopedic procedures. mymobility with Apple Watch is a part of ZBEdge, Zimmer Biomet's suite of connected digital and robotic technologies designed to deliver actionable insights with the goal of improving patient outcomes. The data are being presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) 2021 Annual Meeting being held on August 31 to September 3 in San Diego. PODIUM SESSION: Paper 458 - A Smartwatch Paired Mobile Application Provides Postoperative Self-Directed Rehabilitation Without Compromising Patient Outcomes: A Randomized Controlled Trial: Evaluated 337 patients who underwent primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) to determine the impact on postoperative outcomes with the use of a self-directed rehabilitation (SDR) program after TKA. The SDR was administered via the mymobility application which provided pre- and post-operative education and video-directed exercise programs and was paired with an Apple Watch to help track the patient's physical activity. Patients were divided into three groups: a control group who had formal physical therapy (184 patients), a high exercise-compliance SDR treatment group (90 patients) and a low exercise-compliance SDR group (63 patients). Patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) of knee injury and osteoarthritis outcome scores, joint replacement (KOOS, JR) along with knee range of motion and manipulation rates were evaluated. Results showed no clinically significant differences between groups for all evaluated outcomes at 3, 6 or 12 months. Study Outcome: Researchers concluded that a postoperative SDR program administered through a mobile application paired with a smartwatch can provide similar patient-reported outcome measures while not affecting manipulation rates or compromising range of motion, regardless of the level of compliance with the application exercise program.
