This new concept of creating ‘Live Patient Records’ by utilizing the ‘Range of Motion Protocols’ can easily be expanded to address patients undergoing non-plastic surgical treatments, i.e., Botox injections, orthopedic surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, physical therapy, etc.
A good example of this non-surgical application of this technology is in the field of neurology where Parkinson’s disease patients are the most obvious beneficiaries with this type of video documenting, tracking, and outcome assessment by utilizing its own motion protocol. Other entities, such as Bell’s Palsy, ALS, MS, Tourette’s Syndrome, etc., can either have their own individual motion protocols designed, or share with other existing protocols that cover similar anatomical targets.
Again, these de facto ‘Patient Virtual Physicals On Demand’ for patients with existing or potential motion disorders, in any medical specialty, can go a long way to help the physicians to make more accurate diagnoses, and to better monitor the efficacy of their treatment and rehabilitation regimens with ‘first person eye witness’ clarity. These videos can become the backbone of tele-medicine by facilitating the sharing of patient visual data between urban medical centers and remote, rural and offsite clinics.
