AGE-WELL PUBLIC WEBINAR SERIES: In-home rehab made possible for knee replacement recovery

August 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

In-home rehab made possible for knee replacement recovery

Date & Time: Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 1:00 PM EDT

Description:

The number of knee replacement surgeries performed in Canada keeps rising as our population ages—even if many are being postponed during the COVID-19 crisis. Surgeons have perfected the procedure but research show that 80 per cent of older adults don’t follow through on their rehab. Meet the founder and CEO of Curovate, a startup supported by AGE-WELL that developed a health app for knee replacement recovery after surgery.

Webinar participants will:
•         Learn about this novel app, the benefits it offers, and what sparked its development
•         Hear about opportunities and challenges in creating health apps for older adults
•         Find out how older adults took part in shaping this app

Speaker:
Nirtal Shah, founder and CEO, Curovate (app for knee replacement recovery)
