Digital intervention for self-management following total knee replacement surgery: a pilot study

People Involved

Project Description

Total knee replacement (TKR) surgery is a common procedure and is on the increase. While TKR surgery is considered to be cost-effective and improves quality of life, pain and function for patients, there is a need to identify effective post-operative management approaches to maximise long term benefits. This project will aim to augment post-operative physiotherapy with digital health technology to support self-management during the rehabilitation period after TKR.

We will refine a mobile phone app for use in TKR rehabilitation working with patients.
