stapp one at the Orthopedic Hospital Speising: Advantages of a MedTech Cooperation
The Orthopedic Hospital Speising in Vienna uses stapp one’s intelligent sensor soles for a wide range of physiotherapeutic interventions. This leads to a great win-win situation because the attending therapists, the patients and the stapp one team as developer and manufacturer benefit from the cooperation.
stapp one and the Orthopedic Hospital Speising have been productively working together for almost two years now. That’s why stapp one was even featured in the spring issue of the Orthopedic Hospital Speising’s staff magazine, where the use of the innovative sensor soles in the field of rehabilitation was featured.
Application possibilities of stapp one
The intelligent sensor soles of stapp one measure the foot pressure load of the patients. This data is wirelessly transmitted to the correspondent medical software, which provides a live biofeedback. The pressure load as well as the body’s center of gravity are visualized on a laptop or tablet in a way that is easy to understand. Therefore not only therapists but also patients themselves have the possibility to make corrections. The aim is to optimize the gait and movement pattern and to mobilize injured structures in a more target-oriented manner.
In Speising, stapp one is the basis for many physiotherapeutic interventions. Postoperatively e.g. after a knee injury (meniscus suture), inappropriate biomechanic stress is very common, which subsequently leads to a longer rehabilitation phase. With stapp one, patients receive support during this phase. They intuitively learn how the optimal pressure load feels like and aids in achieving a faster injury recovery time.
Enormous added value for everyone involved
During a walking test for example, physiotherapists can use stapp one, to see more than with the naked eye would ever be possible. Furthermore, these insights are based on objective data, enabling target-oriented and effective treatment.
Patients are motivated by the product’s playful gamified interface and become an active part of the treatment by having the opportunity to check and correct themselves.
stapp one is a high quality, tested and certified medical product. We at stapp one believe in continuous progress and so we are always striving to develop and improve our product. As we are in close contact with experts from the Speising Orthopedic Hospital, we receive direct feedback and important input from experiences in the field. This helps us to make a very technically complex product as user-friendly and easy to use as possible.
Project: “Partial weight-bearing feedback via app and smartphone”
The successful cooperation between stapp one and the Orthopedic Hospital Speising has a promising future. More and more patients will be treated with the intelligent stapp one sensor soles and areas of application are to be successively developed.
Particularly in the area of partial weight-bearing, stapp one has great application potential. With the corresponding app, patients receive direct live feedback if they exceed the previously defined load limits.
