The Benefits of MotionSense Wearables after Joint Replacement

You are scheduled for a knee replacement. Allow me to introduce you to your recovery companion: Motionsense. Motionsense is an engaging and motivational tool we utilize to help you in your recovery after joint replacement surgery.

Motionsense wearables are adhesive sensors that are placed above and below the knee. These sensors are connected to an app designed to closely chart your progress and keep you connected to your care team here at the Oklahoma Joint Reconstruction Institute.

There are many benefits of this new technology. Motionsense helps us track your movement in real-time, as it guides you through a personalized exercise regime. This
remote monitoring allows you to exercise and recover from the comfort of your own home.

Via the app, you can let us know about your pain levels so that we can most effectively manage any discomfort. You’ll be able to share updated photos of your knee so that we can
visually track your healing process.

Check out our website to hear from Steve–a patient who experienced a successful recovery with the aid of Motionsense. The wearable sensors and corresponding app allow you and our team here to measure your daily steps and activity, and help to ensure you meet those pre-determined goals.
