Zimmer Biomet mymobility Clinical Study
Hoag Orthopedic Institute is the only Southern California hospital participating
in the newly launched, multi-site Zimmer Biomet mymobility™ Clinical
Study, which seeks to assess the impact on patient outcomes and overall
costs for as many as 10,000 joint replacement patients across the nation.
HOI is one of 18 sites throughout the U.S. participating in the trial
which officially launched on October 15, 2018.
mymobility Clinical Study
The mymobility Clinical Study is being conducted by Zimmer Biomet to evaluate
a potential new standard of pre- and postoperative care for hip and knee
replacement. The study is designed to determine if a mobile application
paired with accurate and sensitive activity monitoring, captured from
consumer wearables for the entire episode of hip or knee joint replacement,
can provide a viable alternative to the current standard of care.
How does the mobile application work?
Through the use of a smartphone and wrist-worn wearable, the mymobility
app provides instruction and opportunities for enhanced engagement between
the patient and healthcare provider. This mobile application is designed
to work with Apple Watch® to remind patients to check their smartphone application daily, to read
pre-planned and timed educational information, perform tasks, and complete
assigned exercises. Understanding their condition and care plan gives
patients the ability to actively participate in optimizing their surgical outcome.
