Born out of a collaboration between two orthopedic surgeons, Drs. Reuben Gobezie and Laurence Higgins, Genie Health was founded on patient monitoring research that extended physical therapy protocols to ensure the best possible post-surgery outcomes.
“One of our challenges was understanding how effective a procedure or intervention was if we couldn’t account for the quality of rehab between patient visits,” said Dr. Gobezie.
The goal was to develop a standardized physical therapy regimen that featured exercises developed by top sports and rehab professionals. The original platform would lead patients through best practice protocols and measure the range of motion, volume and intensity of exercises. This data would enable the provider to correct an issue before it became a major complication.
PT Genie, the origin of Genie Health, was the result of a multi-year collaboration inspired by hope to provide the best possible patient outcomes.
