Last December 2017, the project submitted by the consortium formed by Fisio Consultores S.L. and GeoSpatiumLab S.L., together with Research Group iPhysio of University San Jorge y la Foundation Don Gnocchi in Italy, was one of the 25 projects selected by INNOvative LABS (INNOLABS), financed by the European Union H2020 Innovation and Research program (Grant No. 691556). The goal of the project is the development of a virtual platform for physiotherapists to monitor and give support to patients and analyse the different factors that affect their evolution, individually and as a group.
The platform will provide an easy-to-use, safe and efficient contact channel for physiotherapist and patients all along of treatment process. On the one hand, it will offer health professionals a means to prescribe individualized therapeutic exercises in audio-visual format and educational content based on evidence, and also to monitor clinical evolution and control adherence of patients to the treatments. On the other hand, It facilitates the patients to play and active role and gives professional support out of in-person sessions. All of this helps to improve fidelity of patients and the relationship among professionals and patients.
The first version of the platform will be focused on the musculoskeletal pain and the analysis of the influence of different biopsychosocial factors in order to improve the treatment approach. At this moment, the project is supported by collaborators in Spain, Italy and United Kingdom and open for professionals of different specialization scopes to join, being the general aim to dignify the physiotherapist profession and improve the quality of life of people.
