For patients with Parkinson’s disease, it is a good to stay physically fit. In addition to the general benefits it provides, physical activity also has a positive effect on potential Parkinson’s complications, such as depression and sleep disturbances. Furthermore, there are indications that good health can lead to a delay in the progress of the disease.
SAMMI supports physical therapists and patients. Using exercise machines that are connected to tablets via the SAMMI app, it is possible for physical therapists to monitor exercise programmes from a distance.
What does this mean for me as a patient?
The app on the tablet makes it possible for you to train without having to visit the physical therapist. The exercise machine can be kept at home, which removes one more obstacle between you and working out. You can exercise at home under the guidance of your physical therapist with a training programme specially tailored to your needs.
What does this mean for me as a healthcare professional?
SAMMI takes a lot of work out of your hands. You will guide the patient in using the app, keep the patient motivated, and conduct a weekly test at the patient’s home. You can monitor the rest of the exercise from a distance. It is no longer necessary to see a patient multiple times a week at your practice.
