Vivago system has been successfully used in the home care and rehabilitation for years in Finland and other European countries. Our customers tell us that Vivago has been helpful in enabling timely interventions and in assessing the functional capacity of the elderly. With the help of actigraphy data, processes have been developed to create a seamless continuum of care from home to the hospital and back.
The rehabilitation hospital in the city of Pori renewed their care processes with the help of health information. With Vivago watches, both, the discharged patients in home care and the patients in the ward and are now under continuous monitoring for 24/7.Download Vivago's Case
Senior Physician, Dr. Heidi Veteläinen from Taukokangas rehabilitation hospital in Finland summarises the benefits in her institution as follows:
“When treating neuropathic pain of a post-stroke patient, the length and quality of sleep were used as indicators of success. Also it has been easy to recognize the patients with excessive nocturnal urination and to follow up the effectiveness of antibiotics in the treatment of urinary tract infection. Furthermore, we have been able to detect several suspected cases of sleep apnea, and the patients have been admitted to further medical investigation.”
Vivago MOVETM solution will open new opportunities in the rehabilitation of patients of all ages, who are physically active also outside the home. Below are some examples of such patient groups and applications:
Pain is an issue with many recovering patients. Actigraphy doesn’t measure pain but provides a reliable indication of sleep, daytime activity and circadian rhythm, which are relevant secondary indications of pain. Clinical practice has demonstrated that effective pain medication or drug-free methods for relieving pain will help patients sleep better. And good sleep is essential for getting well again.
With Vivago MOVETM, also the recovering patient will get direct feedback on their activity and sleep, which may encourage them to practice and rest appropriately. Motivation is the key to gaining one’s strength and getting back to normal life.
