Niia is a smart sleeve that helps to improve physical therapy compliance. The knee is the most commonly injured joint by athletes. With rehab dedication, most can regain strength and function by four to six months. However, 51% of the patients are either noncompliant or low-compliant with their physical therapy treatment program. Niia’s compression sleeve built with textile sensors and a wearable attachment, work together to track recovery data. Niia uses a 3 directional accelerometer sensor along with a smartphone’s GPS system to track patient workout compliance or neglect. The connected application offers paperless workout sessions, a daily pain log, automated reminders and collective progress data.
