Ara empowers patients who have injured their Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) to recover faster by providing precise and real-time feedback on their activities throughout the day so they can take an active part in their own recovery process. It also allows practitioners to make data-driven decisions and produce rehabilitation plans catered specifically to their patients needs.
The concept consists of three main components: a knee brace to monitor the patient’s injury, an app to communicate not only the status of the injury but also an adaptive therapy plan, and a charging unit. Since patients will be wearing Ara throughout the day, the device was thoughtfully designed to be aesthetically appealing. Its minimal design was created by keeping all the technical details inside and keeping a clean outer profile.
