PLAYWORK is an advanced big data solution for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and medical insurance providers to improve rehabilitation patient engagement. The proprietary IoT-based technology integrates sensors into equipment to measure details such as motion and force. This turns traditional therapy equipment into smart controllers for engaging video game-style therapy exercises on a tablet with visual feedback.

Physiotherapists have always incorporated balls and other conventional equipment into their clinical sessions and exercises. However, these do not provide the therapist with objective information that reflects the patient's true compliance with the exercise protocol. In addition, therapists devote a large portion of their time to maximize patient engagement in order to maximize treatment efficiency, as the more a patient practices – the better they get. This, in return, translates into maximizing healthcare reimbursement for patients, as a therapist can see a larger number of patients and offer better and faster treatment.

PLAYWORK’s platform monitors patient performance to inform clinical decisions, boost treatment efficiency, and maximize healthcare reimbursement. PLAYBALL, the company’s CE-certified flagship product, is currently being distributed by over a dozen distributors in Europe and the USA and is an official supplier to Israeli healthcare service providers. It comes with an existing library of compatible full body exercise programs, while also allowing therapists to create their regimens. PLAYWORK is currently developing prototypes of three additional common therapeutic implements that will utilize its core technology to convert them into smart equipment.
