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.
Hoag Orthopedic Institute 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 patients. The study is designed to determine if a mobile application
paired with accurate and sensitive activity monitoring, captured from
a wearable device, such as an Apple Watch®, for the entire patient journey for a hip and knee replacement patient,
can provide a viable alternative to the current standard of care.
How does the mobile application work?
Through the use of a smartphone and a wrist-worn wearable device, the mymobility
app provides instruction and opportunities for enhanced engagement between
the patient and the orthopedic surgeon and healthcare team. The mobile
application is designed to work with the Apple Watch to remind patients
to check the mymobility app 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 the outcome after hip or knee replacement surgery.
