'SWORD Phoenix' Uses AI and Motion Tracking to Provide Treatment

SWORD Phoenix is a new, digital platform that solves one of the most disheartening aspects of physical rehabilitation and recovery. The "Digital Therapist", as the platform is branded, gives patients the ability to perform their exercises at home, providing a professional program and accurate tracking data that equals the level of treatment available in a dedicated facility.

When it comes to physical rehab, one's injury is often frustrating in and of itself. That feeling only multiplies with the prospect of having to frequently travel to a rehab facility in order to receive treatment from a physical therapist. SWORD Phoenix uses a combination of artificially intelligent software, motion-tracking devices, and remote human monitoring to provide engaging, reparative treatment at home.

SWORD Phoenix programs are not entirely digital, to be sure. Each treatment plan is initiated through an in-person session with a therapist, and that therapist further monitors the patient's progress and adjusts the exercises remotely once they're set in place.
