Combining wearable sensors and gamified exercises, Tenzr Health‘s physical therapy device gives invaluable feedback and data to patient and therapist.
After wider adoption in clinics across British Columbia, the Vancouver startup’s wearable health tech is now available in physiotherapy clinics in Ontario.
Thunder Bay’s Hand and Upper Limb Clinic and Toronto’s Orthopaedic Therapy Clinic have activated Tenzr Health’s movement-tracking software and wearable sensors, supporting the rehabilitation journey of patients recovering from musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries of the hand, wrist, and elbow.
It’s a strong start to a new year for Tenzr Co-Founders Lukas-Karim Merhi and Gautam Sadarangani, who have seen strong momentum since releasing their product and launching the Tenzr Health service in Canada over a six-month period in 2021.
“All the founding members of this company have been through some form of physical therapy, so we know how challenging recovery can be,” says Lukas, Tenzr Health’s Co-Founder and CEO.
“We created Tenzr Health to empower both patients and therapists in and out of the clinic. Tenzr Health measures all important aspects of recovery and joint health including continued progression through the rehabilitation journey to reach the fullest possible recovery.”
The Tenzr Health digital therapy kit was created to support both therapists and patients through the rehabilitation process by measuring unique metrics, gamifying rehab, and using actionable data to increase clients’ engagement and compliance with the recovery journey.
The clinical utility of Tenzr Health’s technology (tracking rehab compliance and recovery status) has been independently validated and published in a study in the journal Neurorehablitation and Neural Repair.
Having successfully launched in Canada, Tenzr Health aims to build on its momentum and has its sights set on entering the medical device market in the United States—a move eagerly anticipated by clinics keen on making the Tenzr experience available to their clients.
