mymobility™ clinical study

The mymobility Clinical Study is being conducted by Zimmer Biomet to evaluate  a potential new standard of pre- and postoperative care for hip and knee replacement surgery. The study is designed to determine if a mobile application paired with accurate and sensitive activity monitoring, captured from consumer wearables for the entire episode of hip or knee joint replacement, can provide a viable alternative to the current standard of care.

Through the use of a smartphone and wearable wrist companion, the mymobility app provides instruction and opportunities for enhanced engagement between the patient and healthcare provider. This mobile application is designed to work with the Apple Watch® wearable companion to remind patients to check their smartphone application daily, to read pre-planned and timed educational information, perform tasks, and complete assigned exercises; understanding their condition and care plan gives patients the ability to actively participate in optimizing their surgical outcome. 


Study sites

The mymobility Clinical Study requires qualified patients and personalized care plans that begin before each patient’s procedure and continue postoperatively. These care plans include the use of education, questionnaires, and exercises. Once active, the mobile application serves as a communication tool between patients and their care team and communicates with the Apple Watch, providing information and instruction to help optimize recovery. Surgeons use a clinician dashboard to monitor the threshold values and actively observe progress throughout each patient’s journey. Through the adoption of multifunctional sensor technology in the form of a wearable companion on the wrist, mymobility provides the potential to identify metrics that may permit further refinement of pre and postsurgical care.
