Movement as medicine
Movement can be a very effective medicine in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems, but like with any medicine, too much can be harmful while too little has no effect.
The right dosage
The main component in successful progress is the ability to quantify and control all variables in therapeutic exercises. This is possible if the devices are correctly designed to provide smooth and easy-to-handle loading over the full range of movement. The movement and speed are accurately controlled by the responsive graphical feedback of the EVE Terminals, which ensures that an individually prescribed, safe range is followed.
The DAVID Solution includes joint-specific devices with optimized biomechanical properties for spine, hip & knee, and shoulder joints. The devices use correct joint and axis alignment, scientifically proven loading curves, and target area isolation enabled by effective fixations. This allows for a remarkably gentle motion to the joints yet provides the highest possible neuromuscular training effect.
All training parameters are quantified and fine-tuned for each individual.
With all the sophistication in the devices and software, DAVID devices are remarkably easy to use. Registering to each device is done with an RFID card. Seats and other support elements are automatically adjusted, and the program is retrieved from the cloud. After a few instructed sessions, patients quickly master the use of the system, freeing human resources for more critical tasks. One physical therapist can manage 3-6 patients simultaneously without any reduction in the quality of care. Also, self-care is possible and proven to be very effective both medically and economically.
Comprehensive data collection
All relevant data is automatically collected from several sources: e-mail links, tablets, mobile phones, Info-Kiosk, and David devices. Data gathering is pre-programmed according to each treatment plan, which ensures that all data is collected with minimal human intervention. Data is collected from questionnaires, pain drawings, tests, and exercises.
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 always available for managers.
