Quality improvement through digital training therapy
AUVA Accident Hospital in Klagenfurt at WÖRTHERSEE
Demanding patient autonomy the digital way
Pixformance stations are used in both individual and group therapy. When the patient is admitted, it is first checked whether this type of training therapy with Pixformance is possible. This involves looking to see if the load and movement specifications are available from the surgical site. If this is not the case, the patient is first given definitive individual therapy.
However, if the patient meets the specifications, an individual training program is developed. This program is created and saved on the online platform with just a few clicks and can then be tested on the ward. The first training session takes place under therapeutic supervision. This ensures that the patient can clarify open questions about the station or the exercises and that the quality and settings of the exercises are rechecked. If everything fits, the patients can then train on their own in front of the station.
“Pixformance is a super support for us to carry out the classic home exercise program in a more targeted way. We have better training planning because the exercises can be set individually with the repetitions, difficulty levels, running time, etc., so that the patients do exactly what the therapist wants. In addition, the guidance provided by the short videos on the stations helps them immensely with exercise performance.”
In addition, the exercises are varied and go far beyond classic strength training, the therapy manager reports further.
“If you only print out exercises, patients often resist doing challenging exercises that are essential for the success of the therapy and put them on the back burner or skip them,” says Oratsch. Thanks to the virtual trainer’s guidance, patients are motivated to always perform their exercises correctly and cleanly. In this way, the patients’ independence is challenged, which in turn has a positive effect on the long-term success of the therapy.
