New business opportunities
Typically, just 1 out of 10 patients seeking help for musculoskeletal pain is indicated for surgery. The rest are referred to non-surgical treatments, mostly physical therapy. However, few orthopedic centers offer structured and profitable physical therapy services.
DAVID Exercise Therapy Solution opens up new opportunities for orthopedic centers with a turn-key solution to keep these patients, profitably.
Turn non-surgical services into a new profit center
The DAVID Solution can turn physical therapy into a medical and economic success. Structured programs, easy-to-use devices with automatic adjustments, and visual feedback minimizes therapist intervention and maximizes patient throughput. Automated data collection reduces bureaucracy substantially while providing a new level of evidence in outcomes.
“It’s been demonstrated that with degenerative joint problems therapeutic exercise can be as equally effective as surgery but with less costs and risks of complications.”
Be a forward-thinker
Recent studies show that active therapy can be as equally effective as surgery in treating many joint problems. Third parties such as insurance companies are taking note of these new findings. Medical guidelines in several countries have started to recommend active therapy as the primary tool in the treatment of these problems if not otherwise indicated. Orthopedic centers which include documented programs in line with these guidelines are viewed favorably as forward-thinking partners.
High quality of care done affordably
Quality care does not need to be expensive to produce. Our solution allows physical therapists to focus on patient 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 physical therapy. The bulk of the work occurs in the first session when a new patient is introduced. After this, the physical therapist’s manual workload is dramatically reduced, and the therapist can focus on more critical tasks.
“The main reason why the DAVID Solution is more profitable than traditional physical therapy is the ability to provide the same or better service level with less human resources.”
Turn your patients into members
Patients are quickly empowered by the ease of use of the DAVID Solution. After just a few visits, patients are able to run through their routine without any hands-on help from the staff. This creates 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 with high member satisfaction that guarantees loyalty in all musculoskeletal needs.

Overall about 400 people visit the clinic each week, and half of these are in the David treatment program. The clinic operates in a variety of ways including membership-fee and FPZ-insurance patients.
