Intro to Recording Patient Baselines with PT+ Clinic
With Halterix founder Thomas Mak
What are patient baselines?
In order for you and your patients to get the most out of PT+, you’ll need to create baseline recordings for each assigned exercise.
Patient baselines are personalized motion data recordings created under supervision, during an appointment. Every patient is different. Baselines allow PT+ to adapt to the capabilities of each patient and evaluate their exercise performance accurately.
It’s important to create baseline recordings for your patients before they use PT+ at home for the first time.
We recommend recording new baselines periodically, during follow-up appointments, as patients make material progress in their recovery.
Recording a baseline
1. Connect Patient's phone to your Wifi
Before you begin, your patient should connect to your clinic’s WiFi network. This will prevent the patient from incurring mobile data charges during baseline recording.
2. Verify Patient has installed PT+.
Your patient should already have PT+ installed on both their phone and their smartwatch.
Installing PT+ is easy, but if your patient hasn’t already completed the setup process prior to their appointment, we recommend postponing baseline recording to a subsequent appointment.
3. Use Edit Mode to enable Baseline Recording for the patient.
Using PT+ Clinic, locate your patient and select Edit from either the patient list or the patient view. This will enable baseline recording mode for the patient.
Leave the patient in Edit mode until you’re done recording all baselines.
