There’s no denying that smart phones and digital devices are rapidly changing the way we connect and live our lives. From finding a shop, to connecting with loved ones via video calls, the technology we now hold in the palm of our hands was unthinkable just a decade ago. There’s no difference when it comes to innovative new ways to enhance a patient treatment and experiences. New software, apps and wearable technology is providing Doctors with a deeper level of connection and understanding of their patient, assisting in planning their treatment, education and recovery.
Dr Daevyd Rodda, Orthopaedic Surgeon at Sunshine Coast Orthopaedic Group, is leading the way when it comes innovative practices and in April 2019 he was invited to Lugano Switzerland Medacta global conference to present his use of Garmin Trackers and the Medacta Patient Optimised Pathway technology.
See the video below for a short excerpt of this presentation about innovative new ways Dr Rodda is using wearable technology to enhance recovery following hip replacement surgery.
