Florida Orthopaedic Institute has been selected as one of the group practice centers in the nation to participate in the Zimmer Biomet mymobility® Clinical Study.
Many patients undergoing hip or knee replacement (some of the most common surgeries Americans undergo each year) have the opportunity to try the Zimmer Biomet mymobility app. Using Apple Watch® technology, the app connects patients and their surgical teams to deliver continuous data intended to optimize patient care and outcomes. This research project is one of the largest evidence-gathering clinical studies in orthopedic history.
Zimmer Biomet’s mymobility Clinical Study will look at the impact of this mobile app on outcomes and overall costs for joint replacement patients. During the study, patients use Zimmer Biomet’s mymobility app with their iPhone® and Apple Watch. Researchers then combine patient-reported feedback with continuous health and activity data from Apple Watch to guide patients through pre- and post-op care to gain new insights that may impact the standard of care for these common surgeries. A Zimmer Biomet hip or knee replacement product will be used.
Patients can easily connect with their caregivers and surgical team through the use of the mymobility app on the Apple iPhone.
The Apple Watch gives patients convenient notifications making it easy for patients to know and follow through on their recovery plan. Through mymobility, patients can access their rehabilitation exercises via videos on their iPhone. The app can track activity and allows for secure messaging with the care team.
CONNECT WITH OUR RESEARCH TEAM TO SEE IF YOU QUALIFY TO PARTICIPATE.
To participate in the study, patients must have an iPhone 6 or newer and meet the study qualifications. If you are selected to participate, you will be provided an Apple Watch to use for the duration of your participation in the clinical study.
Zimmer Biomet’s mymobility with Apple Watch app acts as a virtual and continuous care team on a patient’s wrist. Patients are provided with virtual support and guidance as they prepare for and recover from these surgeries, while surgeons will get continuous data to optimize care.
The app has several features that use both Apple Watch and iPhone, including the ability for surgeons to send education and therapy reminders directly to the patient’s Apple Watch. Surgeons can also monitor patient activity levels throughout the days and weeks while they are preparing for and recovering from surgery.
