Designed for orthopedics

Muvr was designed specifically for orthopedics in close collaboration with surgeons, physical therapists, and patients. It is a state-of-the-art healthcare platform born out of a desire to improve care and advance transparency and knowledge of the recovery process. Muvr empowers patients to take control of their own recovery and seamlessly communicate highly granular mobility metrics while adding zero administrative burden to the care team. The first application, available now, targets knee surgeries and total knee replacements (TKRs).

18,000 data points per minute

MeasureVariationB
Intra-observer measurement variations are significantly higher using a goniometer compared to IMU-based recordings.2

Muvr’s wearables employ the latest inertial measurement units (IMUs) to collect over 18,000 data samples every minute, allowing you to integrate big data into your practice. Collecting kinematic and dynamic metrics at scale makes Muvr unique and orders of magnitude more advanced than conventional methodologies.

While full motion capture systems are prohibitively expensive, simple tools like the goniometer are surprisingly inaccurate. Recent literature reveals that more than 20% of all goniometer measurements suffer from at least 5 degrees of error1, and intra-observer variation can be almost 10 degrees2. Muvr provides accurate motion capture metrics suitable for 21st century orthopedics.

Engaging patients for continuous improvement and accelerated care

Real recovery happens between visits to the clinic. Unfortunately, as many as 65% of patients do not adhere to their home rehabilitation programs.1 Muvr engages through curated therapy protocols, customized goals, reminders, and rewards. Muvr is designed to empower your patients and help them succeed from day one, promoting higher satisfaction and better outcomes.

Easy, all-in-one care management

BoxSensor@2x

Everything your patients need to succeed comes included – simply provide them with Muvr's recovery kit and track their progress remotely from the dashboard.

Inside the box, patients will find two Muvr sensors, two tri-glide adjustable straps, and two stainless steel buckles. The kit also includes a USB wall charger, a split charging cable, and a Getting Started Guide that provides instructions to download the app and get set up with Muvr.

Earn up to $4,000 on every joint replacement with Muvr

Cost of Post-Operative Care

GraphCost

Joint replacements are some of the most common surgeries performed in the United States. Unfortunately, expenditures for the operation and recovery are remarkably high, averaging $33,000 in certain regions.1 Muvr helps you save money every step along the care pathway. Discharge patients to their homes instead of Skilled Nursing Facilities2, detect stiffness and prevent interventions3, and maximize the efficiency of therapy regimens4. Increase patient satisfaction while saving money on every episode of care, up to $4,000 per patient.
