Tele rehabilitation solution in hip and knee replacements

moveUP came about to help healthcare professionals improve patient pathways and outcomes. Within orthopaedics, the solution targets the following four needs:

1. Need for patient medical diary 

  • More than 6 out of 10 physiotherapists lack preoperative information 

  • 95% agrees that a simple report of the patient’s status would of great help

2. Need for a way to prevent patients from overtraining 
Almost 20% of physiotherapists encounter overtrained patients 

3. Need for an exercise adherence tool 

  • Nearly 25% of physiotherapists struggle to choose the appropriate exercise type and level 

  • About half of the physiotherapists do not know if the patient did his exercises 

4. Need for a tool to provide tele rehabilitation 

  • More than 80% of the physiotherapists is keen to apply tele rehabilitation solutions 


Next to the issues mentioned above, there are still no specific evidence-based guidelines for rehabilitation after hip or knee replacements. On top of that, there are still opposed opinions on rehabilitation characteristics such as slow vs fast progression and low load vs high load exercises. Another issue worth mentioning is the time-consuming element of physical therapy sessions that need to be done at the patient’s home due to his or her immobilisation. 

If we look from a patient’s perspective, they tend to be too active as well as being underactive. The average age of these patients is decreasing which has led to higher post-operative physical demands and different expectations. Being able to provide sufficient answers and expectation management have become key in the rehabilitation approach for those patients. The fact that a patient is immobilised and needs to put in quite some effort to have transportation, urges the need for tele rehabilitation tools.

moveUP is reimbursed in Belgium

Agreement on reimbursement for tele rehabilitation 

Since 13 July 2020, the Insurance Committee of the Medical care service of NIHDI/RIZIV/INAMI approved the agreement via Article 22, 6° bis between the Insurance committee, the physiotherapists and recognised nursing institutions. This agreement includes modalities and reimbursement for rehabilitation with a mobile application (moveUP) of patients before and after primary knee or hip arthroplasty (source: Axxon, newsletter and website).


In other words, the moveUP CE marked medical device is now reimbursed in Belgium for follow-up of patients after hip & knee replacement. The reimbursement for the first mobile health application in Belgium is a fact. As from now patients can experience the advantages of moveUP with the necessary framework. First 15 centers include +1000  patients for an RCT, then opening up to all centers in Belgium. The moveUP application is available for all physiotherapists. Still there are some requirements in order to maintain and increase quality (see preferred partners). 


You can find more information about the agreement and reimbursement on RIZIV (NL / FR) and on Axxon (NL / FR).
