Flexion is an IoT brace designed to streamline recovery after knee surgery through remote adjustments and wireless monitoring by a physical therapist. It connects via Bluetooth LE to the Flexion application where the physical therapist can monitor recovery and adjust the range of motion (ROM) depending on the individual patient’s needs. The patients can access information about their current ROM, for ex-ample. The LED ring on the brace allows them to receive real-time feedback on their exercises. When the brace is ready to come off, Flexion Lite can be used during the final stages of recovery.
