Everyone is unique. That is why we strive to make personalised care available to all. How moveUP can help you depends on multiple factors. Contact us to request and a rehabilitation expert shall contact you within one workday. Based on your unique needs, you will receive a proposal. Requesting a proposal does not oblige you to anything.
2. Introduction to moveUP
You will be guided in installing and getting familiar with the moveUP app and the step counter.
This introduction may take place at an information session at your hospital, at your physiotherapist's practice or online.
3. We help you prepare for your surgery
Two weeks prior to your surgery, start wearing the step counter that you've received from us.
Via the moveUP app, we help you to prepare for the surgery. This includes practical tips such as filling up your refrigerator but also exercises for pain management.
4. Day of your surgery
Your orthopaedic surgeon performs the hip- or knee replacement surgery.
moveUP supports so-called "day surgeries" for patients released from the hospital on the same day as the surgery.
5. Recover at home with daily follow-up
What happens in this phase determines for a large part the success of your surgery. That is why you will be closely monitor and actively guided by experts. Patients particularly feel supported by the frequent interaction they have with their care team.
Daily rehabilitation care includes among others:
- personal coaching with exercises
- attention for your well-being
- management of (pain) medication
- responding to any questions you may have
- physical consultations with your rehabilitation specialist and surgeon, when necessary.
6. Your rehabilitation is a success!
What would you like to be able to do after your surgery? Go for a bike ride, play golf or "just" walk without any pain? Regardless of your goal, we will coach you till you're fully rehabilitated.
To give your surgeon and physiotherapist insight into your health status, you will receive a medical questionnaire once or twice a year.
