This summer the MOVITA (MOve, VIsualize, TAilor) project will kick-off! Together with our consortium partners VU University, Moveshelf, Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep and Sint Maartenskliniek we will develop a product to remotely assess, store, and visualize an OA patient’s daily-life physical behaviour to monitor progression without costly hospital visits.
Scientifically validated algorithms based on wearable technology will be professionalized and integrated in a cloud-based platform with an attractive user-interface co-created with end-users. Field tests will reveal potential pitfalls and unforeseen requirements, further supporting the iterative developmental process. The resultant minimal viable product allows orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists to remotely assess and visualize clinical endpoints, enabling tailormade postoperative treatment.
