We all understand the concept of rehabilitating after an invasive surgery or procedure. Even more important than rehabilitation may be “pre-habilitation” (pre-hab) – the act of getting a patient’s body ready prior to a surgery.
Because surgeries are so hard on the body, it’s important to make sure that a person’s body is physically fit enough to recover from a surgery. That’s where Pre-hab evaluations and regimens come in. These apps use nationally recognized guidelines to evaluate, and track a patient’s “surgery ready” fitness in areas such as – nutrition, sleep, and frailty; while also creating a regimen (if necessary) to get the patient in the best condition possible prior to surgery.
