Facilitating Delivery of Care

The MedExercise system is designed to improve safety and consistency of therapeutic exercise delivered at the point of care and home through provision of reimbursable face-to-face and tele-rehabilitation services by care providers

The MedExercise model of service delivery is based on setting rehabilitation stations with on-going access by the patients and remote monitoring by care providers. Hospital wards and homes are the locations, where patients spend most of their time and MedExercise stations can be set. For early rehabilitation of high-risk patients at the point of care, vital signs during exercise are monitored routinely and medical attendance is available.  

There are at least three types of MedExercise stations, which are designed for:

- leg mobilization on site for preventing complications of prolonged immobility,

- cardio training for sustaining cardiac rehabilitation of cardiovascular diseases,

- gait practice for improving mobility after stroke and other neuromuscular diseases.

For details see: Development of the Internet-Enabled System...

The MedExercise products are intended for diagnostic procedures involved exercise stress and exercise therapy as reimbursable services.
