Evidence leads to non-surgical treatments
Strong scientific evidence shows that surgery is not the right treatment for many joint problems including shoulder impingement, degenerative knee problems and spine instability. Instead, it has been demonstrated that therapeutic exercises are at least equally effective, with significantly less costs and risk of complications.

DAVID Exercise Therapy Solution is a comprehensive platform to fully benefit from these new opportunities.
Prove your success
The DAVID Solution collects all relevant data from questionnaires, pain drawings, tests and exercises. These are automatically compiled from several sources including DAVID devices, e-mail links, tablets, mobile phones and the Info-Kiosk. Data gathering is pre-programmed according to each treatment pathway, which ensures that all data is collected with minimal human intervention.
All data is instantly available for reporting and analysis. With one click, an up-to-date status of any patient can be retrieved. All relevant center- or network-level data is available at all times for managers.
“Member- based prevention programs are a new revenue source for the center and increase customer loyalty”
Produce value for patients affordably
Quality care does not need to be expensive to produce. Our solution allows physiotherapists to focus on the patients’ motivation and well-being while modern technology takes care of the repetitive work precisely and safely. This increases patient satisfaction without driving up costs. In fact, the cost per session is significantly lower than with traditional physiotherapy. The bulk of the work occurs in the first session when a new patient is introduced to the system. After this initial session, the physiotherapist’s manual workload is dramatically reduced, and the therapist can concentrate on more critical tasks.
Turn your patients into members
Patients are quickly empowered by the ease of use of the DAVID Solution. After just a few visits, they are able to run their routine without any hands-on help by the staff. This opens up a completely new business opportunity for health care providers: a member-based model for ex-patients and others who want to improve their quality of life. With steady recurring revenues, this model provides stability in your business and high member satisfaction guarantees loyalty in all musculoskeletal needs.
Manage your center – anytime, anywhere
EVE Cloud Service is the heart of the whole EVE platform. All the training information is stored on the server software allowing for a complete analysis of the treatment data. True to a full cloud service, the system can be accessed with a web browser from any location. The cloud service offers several different functionalities. These include profile analysis, quality tracking of each movement, as well as qualitative and quantitative data for center management.
“All data is instantly available for reporting and analysis. With one click, an up-to-date status of any patient can be retrieved.”
No more inconsistent results from patient to patient, therapist to therapist. Individualized programs can be applied
in a structured and systematic way, because all parameters are quantified and controlled. Programs are based
on diagnose- and test-based templates which reduce planning time to a minimum, while providing high
predictability in outcomes.
