New tool to help injured staff recover at home

HCML, a leading service provider in the rehabilitation and case management arena – assisting injured and ill individuals to recuperate and return to work – are launching a new tool to help injured staff recover more effectively, simply by doing their home exercises better.

The company is aiming to improve recovery outcomes by offering home exercise technology to the 40,000 individuals cared for each year under its rehabilitation and case management services.

Partnering with digital therapeutics solutions provider Physitrack, the platform prompts and inspires patients to follow clinically verified rehabilitation programs using a smartphone or tablet app. Patients use it to report progress and comments, enabling HCML’s clinicians to track and help their progress in real time.

Keith Bushnell, HCML’s CEO says there is mounting evidence that the UK lags behind other nations in using medical and vocational rehabilitation to return injured people back into work at the right time, despite having a clear duty of care.

He adds: “We are delighted to enhance our technology platform with a tool which, when piloted by our team, was proven to boost patient exercise adherence and cut recovery times.

“It helps us to monitor recovery more closely and shows we can always improve rehabilitation times and patient journeys. Line drawings for home exercises, if unclear, can weaken the resolve of a patient. This inspires them to stick with their regime and control their own recovery, creating stronger and faster outcomes.”
