Digital Home-Exercise Therapy Application For Patients With Non-Surgical Knee Injuries

2020-03-29 04:04:34 | BioPortfolio


Knee pain is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal disorders in the United States. Conservative treatments generally consist of pharmacological agents and physical therapy. Unfortunately, such conservative care is often mismanaged, and little data is collected on clinical outcomes. The proposed investigation utilizes a novel and state-of-the-art mobile application (DETP) to guide an at-home exercise therapy program for non-operative knee pain. The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of a DETP by conducting a single-blind randomized, controlled, non-inferiority study to compare the DETP to conventional physical therapy (PT). The investigators will seek to establish non-inferiority of the application compared to the standard of care PT. The investigators will also evaluate satisfaction with the application as a secondary outcome.
