The future of care technology

The future of care technology

What does the future of healthcare look like? We had a great time speaking to an experienced Physical Therapist, medical researcher, and teacher, Dr. Marios, who is located in New Jersey - and is usually busy running his Branch Physical Therapy clinic. Read below what he thinks the future for digital care technology looks like, and learn how his patients have reacted to yoga as part of their rehabilitation journey. Dr Marios will also share three tips that can help you stay energized during your work day.

Essential digital tools

When Dr. Marios founded his clinic, the pandemic had just flipped our world upside down. It was natural for him to include a variety of different digital tools on his website; reviews, easy booking, and social media accounts. He believes that in today’s world, it is crucial to make patient journey’s as easy as possible - agreed! What he also found valuable was to provide digital care technology for the patient to succeed, and this is where Physitrack came along.

“Lots of people started working remotely, and it was possible for them. I thought it should be possible for my profession too. When I found Physitrack, it was exactly what I needed.”

We also had a little fun and played around with the idea: What will digital care technology look like in 10 years?

When we think about digital care developments, it is safe to say that the health technology field is moving rapidly. Virtual reality has already entered the market with innovative care solutions for different psychological conditions and chronic diseases, just to mention a few. Dr. Marios is expecting VR to grow and become a popular digital care tool in patient care for physical rehabilitation as well.

“Maybe we will have the technology that the patient can record themselves three dimensionally where we receive accurate measurements. I can only imagine what will happen in five to ten years, but I am here for it.”

Yoga, the hidden secret

Let’s go back to the present moment and talk yoga and rehabilitation. Dr. Marios practices yoga himself but also recommends it to his patients. He believes yoga is fantastic for the mind and the body. “You will work on your balance, strength, range of motion, and most importantly your breath. My patients have loved it, and I think it is a hidden secret in a sense. I can recommend it to everyone.”

How to boost energy levels?

Lastly, we touched on work ergonomics. What do people currently struggle with the most?

“We are all guilty of it. Occasionally we work in poor-ergonomic positions. It is easy to sit on the sofa, or perhaps convenient to work at the kitchen table, but then inevitably we find ourselves in a bad posture. The most common problems with the working population relate to the neck and upper back, but there are ways we can prevent these sorts of problems.”

Dr. Marios’ 3 work ergonomic tips:

  • Put an alarm on your phone and get up and move every hour
  • If possible, get an ergonomic chair
  • Create a habit. Maybe before every meeting, you do a simple stretch for a couple of minutes!
  • Also, read his tips for lower back pain here.

We thank Dr. Marios for his time and hope you enjoyed reading this story.
