The clinic chain is leveraging the combination of AI technology to provide physiotherapy services across its clinics for the first time in India
Apollo Clinic has partnered with Fix Health (YourPhysio previously), a healthcare company that specialises in providing AI-assisted physiotherapy. Through this partnership, the clinic chain is bringing care from the experts across India to a patient’s home via in-clinic, at-home & online care. The AI ensures precision in tracking the movements of an individual. The technology platform opens access to physiotherapy beyond regular clinic hours – opening it from 6 am to 9 pm every day.
Apollo Clinic is also conducting regular camps across its societies & clinics of AI-based posture assessment tests that have been developed by the Fix Health’s team of engineers from IIT Bombay & BITS Pilani. Patients visiting the clinics have to simply pose in 2 positions while an expert, using a mobile phone captures the patient’s posture & movement through the Fix Health app. The app then automatically assesses the postural health status of the patient using AI & delivers the report on WhatsApp in less than 1 minute.
Apollo Clinic has already used Fix Health for posture & ergonomic assessment of corporate desk job workers where more than 25 per cent have been found to have forward neck posture by 11 degrees – thus showing potential early risk of neck & back pain.
With the help of Fix Health’s network of 70+ physiotherapists, Apollo Clinic is providing physiotherapy services for 250+ conditions & 10+ treatment areas including back-neck pain, shoulder-knee pain, post-operative rehabilitation, adult & pediatric neurology rehabilitation along with pre & post pregnancy care.
