Kiio has expanded its low back pain management and prevention program to include programs for knee, neck, and hip pain, it announces in a news release.
These new programs use an evidence-based approach to deliver MSK therapy directly to a member’s smartphone or tablet. Members can conveniently use Kiio whenever and wherever it’s best for them. Kiio’s quick-start solution doesn’t require waiting for equipment, scheduling a clinical consult, or learning how to use sensors or motion tracking.
They also integrate advanced software and clinical practice guidelines to evaluate member fit. Kiio’s Care Path Optimization screens more than 80% of members into Kiio, placing them into the therapeutic track best suited to their specific joint pain and symptoms. For those that don’t screen into a Kiio program, Kiio works with its clients to link members to the most appropriate in-network external care.
On-Demand, Personalized Exercise Therapy
Kiio uses technology to deliver on-demand, personalized exercise therapy and interactive virtual coaching. Kiio’s AI dynamically adapts the program to member feedback – personalizes secure messages, proactively coaches with in-app alerts, monitors progress and advances members as they feel better. Members always have the option to access live 1:1 Care Team support if or when they want it.
Another unique component of Kiio’s digital MSK care is the use of its proprietary algorithms to deliver the right education at the right time. Kiio collaborated with author and pain specialist Dr. Adriaan Louw, Director of the Therapeutic Neuroscience Research Group, to develop custom education for members on easing pain, managing flare-ups and modifying behavior for sustained improvement, Kiio explains in a news release.
“We’ve created a seamless member experience integrating multiple joints that gets members moving and achieving their pain management goals – from prevention, to managing acute issues, to improving chronic conditions. Over the rest of the year, we’ll be launching additional joints to further increase Kiio’s ability to serve the broadest population possible with convenient, individualized and effective digital MSK care that provides members relief without meds, invasive diagnostics or surgery.”
— Alex Kramer, Vice President of Product, who led the strategy and development of these new programs
“With Kiio a person in pain can answer screening questions at 9:00 PM on a Friday, download Kiio, do their first personalized exercise therapy routine in 7 minutes, repeat the next 2 days, and be on their way to feeling better by the end of their weekend. That’s impactful.
“We’ve had such great results with Kiio. Rolling out Kiio programs for neck, knee and hip pain fits perfectly with our mission to bring innovative approaches to increase access to MSK care that’s proven to work quickly and get people back to doing the things they love.”
— Kiio CEO Lydia Zeller
