Physical therapy practice owner Glynn Hunt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, launches MEHAB, an app engineered to enable self-directed rehabilitation of injuries and impairments as an alternative to in-office visits.
“High patient costs were becoming commonplace, and combined with benefit limits, people were falling through the cracks. People either could only afford a visit or two, or never made it at all,” says Hunt, CEO of Mehab LLC, in a media release. “That was the inspiration for MEHAB.”
The app tracks a user’s daily pain level and weekly functional status to assess their recovery and response to therapy. It also features detailed instructions and video demonstrations of exercises.
“The reality is research shows, for most, a structured professionally developed home program provides the same results as formal therapy. Being a therapist myself, that’s a hard pill to swallow,” Hunt adds in the release.
“People that have great insurance, unlimited time and resources, or need more supervision will still choose formal care, but for people like me, it is the perfect solution.”
MEHAB is available for both Apple and Android mobile devices.
