Dr. David Crawford completed his fellowship in adult hip and knee reconstruction at JIS Orthopedics and remained with the healthcare provider after his training. JIS Orthopedics is one of 25 health practices across the United States selected to participate in the Zimmer Biomet mymobility™ Clinical Study, which aims to determine how patients can improve their joint replacement recovery with the help of the mymobility™ app.

The study is one of the largest of its kind in orthopedic history—it will have over 10,000 participants, composed of adults undergoing partial or total knee replacement or total hip replacement in any of the approved health providers.

Zimmer Biomet’s app, mymobility™, uses Apple technology—the iPhone and the Apple Watch, that is—that connects patients with their surgeons and surgical teams. The app provides patients with virtual support and guidance throughout their joint replacement journey and monitors their activity levels as they prepare for and after the surgery. Imagine having a physical therapist guiding you every step of the way, every hour of the day!

It also provides doctors with continuous data regarding their patients, allowing them to provide optimal care recommendations and reminders even without actual face-to-face conversations. This feedback and data can be used by doctors to improve their patients’ journeys through pre- and post-op care.

The app’s potential benefits are immense. Thanks to its features, the app can help patients—and their doctors—save precious time and money. It will also help physicians like Dr. David Crawford obtain more realistic insights into their patients’ recovery. At the same time, the reminders and recommendations from the app can help speed up the recovery of patients.

Dr. Keith Berend of JIS had this to say about the study: “We are confident that, through this research, we will gain new insights that will impact the standard of care for knee and hip replacement patients.”
