MedRisk announces the addition of a telerehab component to its onsite physical therapy program, to ensure consistent care of all of an employer’s injured workers regardless of location—even if they work remotely.

MedRisk places a full-time, onsite physical therapist with expertise in treating work-related injuries in key locations to provide care to patients at their workplaces. The onsite physical therapist, who has also received specialized training on the delivery of physical rehabilitation via video conference, delivers physical rehabilitation to employees at satellite locations via telerehab. All the patient requires is the use of an Apple or Android mobile device, the MedRisk app, or a computer with an audio-enabled webcam, MedRisk explains in a media release.

“The onsite-telerehab model guarantees consistent treatment strategies and philosophy of care for all employees regardless of their geographic locations,” says MedRisk’s Chief Clinical & Product Officer, Mary O’Donoghue, in the release.

In addition to treating patients, MedRisk’s onsite physical therapist provides initial evaluations and injury triage, functional capacity evaluations, post-offer employment testing, re-injury prevention training, ergonomic assessments, workstation analysis and work hardening, conditioning, and readiness testing.
