During major orthopaedic surgery, patients have an entire joint cut out of their body and replaced. In our healthcare system, those patients receive a few sheets of paper with instructions for rehabilitation on their own. It comes as no surprise then that 80% of patients do not complete the necessary rehabilitation and physiotherapy. This leads to significant long-term health consequences and thus the additional cost to the health care system. Curovate provides every patient with daily customized rehabilitation and physiotherapy exercises prior to and 6 months after major orthopaedic surgery on their mobile device. This makes rehabilitation cheaper, more convenient and will ultimately improve patient satisfaction and patient health outcomes. Curovate has already deployed apps for total knee replacement, total hip replacement and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rehabilitation in both App Stores. Curovate's existing platform allows us to scale by deploying a mobile app for every major orthopaedic surgery, potentially reaching 6.6 million patients annually in the US alone.
