Pulmonary Rehabilitation and CliniTouch Vie
A tailored programme of exercises, breathing techniques, and health education which empowers patients to continue their rehabilitation in the safety and comfort of their own home, whilst being monitored by their healthcare practitioner.
Pulmonary rehabilitation has been identified as a key intervention for tackling respiratory disease, which is highlighted as a national priority in the NHS Long Term Plan.
With the suspension of rehabilitation services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and challenges around general completion rates for pulmonary rehabilitation programmes, the pressures to find new ways to deliver services to patients has taken on a new importance.
It is well known that respiratory patients tend to become relatively inactive as their symptoms usually worsen when engaging with exercise. This can be distressing for patients and lead to a poor quality of life.
Providing pulmonary rehabilitation remotely combats many of the barriers that prevent patients starting or completing their treatment programme. It is more convenient, safer and provides patients with ongoing support.
Empowering patients to take control of their rehabilitation journey from the comfort and safety of their own home, with the support of a dedicated clinical team, can help them lead a better quality of life.
“According to the Association of Respiratory Nurses ‘60% of COPD patients referred for pulmonary rehabilitation are enrolled to a programme within 90 days, while 38% do not complete the treatment course’. This highlights the importance of making pulmonary rehab more accessible, and digital technology does exactly that.”
