re.flex is currently available in the UK and Germany with local partners in the orthopedic industry, which have the necessary resources to provide customer service for patients, but also assistance to doctors that are willing to prescribe re.flex for the benefit of their patients.
The effectiveness of re.flex has been validated in several clinical studies in Germany. After 12 weeks of training, re.flex showed a significant reduction in knee pain for patients diagnosed with gonarthrosis.
- Reduction of pain (KOOS pain)
- Reducing Difficulty in Activities of Daily Living (KOOS ADL)
The guided exercises in sports and movement therapy are aimed at stabilizing the affected knee joint and reducing abnormal joint loads by improving muscular stabilization, which leads to a reduction in the pain felt and an increase in functionality.
re.flex is a class I medical device and is compliant with the ISO 27001 standard for information security. The accuracy of the device was first validated in 2019, with Charite Hospital in Berlin (Germany), resulting in a 4% average deviation from the Gold Standard of motion tracking movement, which means a very good result. Later on, in 2022, a second accuracy validation study was completed with Offenburg Univeristy, with comparable results being recorded.
The safety of re.flex has been validated in several clinical studies. The re.flex training program for gonarthrosis was developed in cooperation with the sports medicine department of the University Hospital in Tübingen.
re.flex manages to secure public reimbursement in Germany, the largest European healthcare market. Since 2022, re.flex is officially listed as DIGA. More information about the DIGA re.flex: DiGA directory
re.flex has achieved a significant milestone by securing public reimbursement for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA) through DiGA, in Germany. Teaming up with our esteemed partners at Sporlastic, we are committed to providing effective care to patients suffering from knee OA and related DRG codes.
However, our dedication extends beyond knee OA, as we actively work on addressing other conditions such as ACL injuries, total knee and total hip replacements, hip osteoarthritis, and lower back pain. Through ongoing medical studies, we aim to expand the list of conditions covered by DiGA, thereby paving the way for public reimbursement in other countries.
