Get a glimpse inside the biggest EU physiotherapy clinics

re.flex started out in 2016 and we are a young and ambitious tech company based in Bucharest. We’ve build a motion detection sensor solution that is used by clinics and physiotherapist and allows them to monitor the patient at home in the later stage of the physical recovery. We will do a pilot test in the next months with three of the leading physiotherapy clinics from Romania: Centrokinetic (Bucharest), Reha Clinic (Timisoara) and Kinetic Plus (Brasov). After that, from January we will continue with the biggest university hospital in Germany and with large chains of physiotherapy clinics in UK and Germany. In the video you can see the current stage of development. More on www.reflex.help .
Our future colleague will be involved in day to day operations and product development with the partner clinics. You will spend most days in the clinic, testing our sensors together with physiotherapists and patients. You will listen to the requests made by the clients (physiotherapists) and by their patients, and report back to our technical team. Another important aspect of your work will be adding & testing new exercises to the platform and assisting the video team.
What’s in it for you? Joining re.flex is much more than having a job. It’s like fulfilling a dream and be an early adopter of a technology that is changing the way physiotherapists engage with basic tasks like clinic protocol management, assisting patients after they already understand the exercises and making assessments. By working with our initial clients, you will get a deep understanding in the business, operations, process structure and challenges of top clinics all over Europe. The experience you will gain can better prepare you for a management position in any physiotherapy clinic.

Our first presentation is out now: Re.Flex – Recovery made simple. Bonus: Making-of pictures!

Re.Flex is back with great news again. We have completed another piece of this important puzzle we are working on solving. It felt like a true need to have this task checked as soon as possible. Why’s that?
Because over the last few months we have met lots of people interested in knowing more about how our product will work and how it can help their clinics. We were focused on improving the motion detection algorithm, the auto-calibration of the sensors, detecting the hardest exercises and it needed all of our attention, not just our tech superstar’s work. That’s why we neglected the product presentation. As a consequence, we found it hard to take advantage of all opportunities we had lately, due to participating to start-up competitions.
A quick review of the events we have attended in the last few months of 2016 physiotherapy sensors 2017   -Startarium (Runner up) -Get in The Ring Romania - (Winner. Qualified for the final stage that will take place in Singapore) -How To Web Conference -Chivas - The Venture 2016 Romania (Qualified for the final stage)   “Why was it hard to take advantage of all the leads and open doors we had?“ Sometimes it’s a challenge to make physiotherapists, doctors, physiotherapy clinics, investors and friends imagine how Re.Flex works and how it can change the physiotherapy industry. The sensors, web platform and mobile app used in clinics and at home, along with the interaction of the patient with the physiotherapist, are all very important things to mention in order to make people aware of the complexity of this project. To make things easier, we decided to invest time to get time. And that’s the reason why the presentation video was a must. physiotherapy solution 2017 What we needed in order to have a video presentation - The best movie director - Actors -Expensive equipment (camera, different lenses, stabilizers, lights panels etc) -A van to fit all of these in -A modern physiotherapy clinic (Thanks Gelu Cosma @ Kinetic Sport Medicine for your support) -A home with a nice lighting design for illustrating the home recovery scenes (Thanks Geami & Chichi) -Pizza and orange juice for everybody (Our CTO got to it first and we caught him) physiotherapy wearable solution 2017 -Video editing (Thanks Victor) -Color correction editing (Thanks Durac) physiotherapy -Voice over (Thanks Vlad Tomei) -Audio editing (Thanks Coty) -Generated 3D screens (We didn’t have the live visualisation ready at the time of the shooting) Thanks Radu physiotherapy technology
We stumbled upon a successful and super funny director who fell in love with Re.Flex at first sight. Radu Barbulescu is a movie and commercial director and he was first AD for two of the best Romanian movies: physiotherapy Sourse: aarc.ro Legaturi Bolnavicioase - 2006 Won the Public Prize for Most Successful Local Film at the Box-Office Won a Gopo Award for Best Actress In A Supporting Role) 4 luni, 3 saptamani si 2 zile - 2007 Nominated for a Golden Globe - Best Foreign Language Film Won 37 awards
On top of this, he won at the Transilvania International Film Festival for best script with his short movie: Dispozitiv 0068 and directed dozens of TV commercials for brands like Lidl, Oskar Superweiss and Scandia Sibiu.
So Radu offered to help us with the video and came up with a nice script that raised some eyebrows in our office. After a little fine tuning and couple of emails, we managed to finish it and make it a killer script. physiotherapy So Radu did the callout and showed up with a full team behind him: Durac (Camera operator) & Biggie (a one man army: sound and lights)
physiotherapy sensors We had the help of a professional ballerina, Ioana Macarie, and took a couple of shots during her practice. physiotherapy
Later, we booked the other members of our team and some close friends and shot the video in 2 days, within 4 filming locations. Everything went perfect and our actors and friends were at Hollywood levels.

Introducing ReFlex: A wearable smart assistant for physiotherapy rehabilitation

When we talk about people and their needs we must look at Abraham Maslow’s Pyramid of Needs. The first and the most important ones of this whole hierarchy of needs are the physiological needs. This means survival and we can mention as being imperiously necessary having air, shelter, water, food, sleep and health. Having a good health means having a balanced diet plan and making sure you keep your body in shape. It can also refer to recovering lost health. This is where we believe we have something important to say.
We wrote in our previous blog post that physiotherapy is a market that didn’t reach full potential of growth and we pointed out few of the reasons why this happened. It is hard to make an estimation about how much this industry will evolve in the years to follow, but one thing is sure: physiotherapists are taking care of more and more patients and they need something to make their life easier. Clinic owners and insurers need more information about the work of physiotherapists. And so do the patients.

Tech revolution! What we are aiming to improve with ReFlex explodata-1

1) Develop a safe and efficient solution for home recovery Insurance studies showed that 70% of the people are quitting physiotherapy sessions when the pain disappears and they regain their mobility. The reasons are multiple, and we can mention a few of them: cost of treatment, the feeling that they recovered, no more time to dedicate for recovery and the loss of motivation. The worst part is that half of them are able to see the injury reappear in the course of 2-3 years.
After the in-clinical sessions of physical therapy, where the patient in closely monitored by a physiotherapist, there comes the last stage of the rehab which is translated into a home recovery routine, often prescribed on mail or paper and without feedback from the patient. Some clinics from the USA started to charge money for home recovery sessions via Skype calls. This is the time when patients are losing that healthy connection with the recovery specialist and their morale decreases.
reflex By creating a safe environment for the patients to reach complete recovery in the last stage of the process, when it is most needed, we make the population healthier and we help physiotherapists to make better use of their knowledge. The patient will rent the sensors from the clinic and it will be very easy for them to complete the sessions from home, whenever they want. They will be motivated to do it by the physiotherapist, who can remotely monitor their activity and feedback. 2) Upgrade the business metrics. New opportunities Talking with many managers, we understood how hard it is for the physiotherapy clinics to scale. For instance, raising the number of patients per physiotherapist ratio (thus making an employee more profitable), without reducing the clinical outcomes or the service quality is a very hard task. Hiring physiotherapists is also a hard thing to do sometimes. The junior physiotherapists need a lot of time to be trained and to be able to fulfil their tasks and senior physiotherapists are hard to find because every clinic needs them. In order to grow a business like this you must provide the same high quality experience to all of your customers. This needs to be reflected in very strict clinical protocols, with tools that can provide clear KPI’s for the business owners.
Technology can now improve the efficiency of the physiotherapy clinics and help the managers implement their clinical protocol, just like the best clinics in the world do. Being well organised and ensuring that a particular protocol and workflow are pursued by all the physiotherapists, you can deliver the same amount of quality and have happy patients. Happy patients will raise the adherence and more recommendations will come.
3) The quality of the physiotherapist’s service There are cases when the physiotherapist is working with more than one patient at a time, so it’s very hard for them to stay continuously focused on the correct movement for each of the patient’s exercises and repetitions. They need to explain every move more than once, give important details during sessions and also create motivation for the patients.b1 Physiotherapists today need to improve their conversational and psychological skills in order to create and maintain a close relationship with the patient. And this is a big challenge for some of them.   By relying on technology, the physiotherapist can easily monitor the patients during their training and provide them a visualization of the correct movement. To make an efficient motivation with the help of technology he can show the patient his recovery progress. 4) More trust from the insurance companies In many countries, the costs of health insurance policies were raised by the insurance companies. There are even insurers that do not reimburse the physiotherapy sessions and one argument they have for this is that they believe this practice needs more standardization and they did not found a way to monitor how the physiotherapy is done and if the patient achieves complete recovery, in order to be safe from sustaining another similar injury.
The numbers speak for themselves. In the US, 25 out of every 100 patients who do not achieve complete recovery, need surgery. This means more money from the insurance companies to pay in this weak chain link.
72-insurance-companies-software-erp-fm How can these things change and physiotherapy to gain more trust? The clinics should give out activity reports with every insured patient’s recovery status and history. Providing this kind of transparency and reports over the billing and claims process, the insurers will have less reasons to fear the recurring injuries and this could solve a couple of important problems. It will again benefit the entire system. The patients will become more motivated in finishing recovery, in order to get the reimbursement. The clinics will have more patients because their services will be reimbursed. The physiotherapist will treat more patients and have a bigger income. Feedback from partner to partner
