THE DMpt Program
CREATING A PARTNERSIDP TO PROVIDE DISTANCE MONITORED PHYSICAL THERAPY
eWellness Corporation is a privately held Nevada corporation that provides Distance Monitored Physical Therapy Programs to diabetic and health challenged patients, through contracted physician practices and healthcare systems. EWC’s plan is to become the new “Go-To” physical therapy solution in the national diabetes and obesity epidemic.
eWELLNESS DISTANCE MONITORED PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM
The eWellness Distance Monitored Physical Therapy (“DMpt”) program, including: design, testing, exercise intervention, follow-up, and exercise demonstration, has been developed by accomplished Los Angeles based physical therapist Darwin Fogt. Mr. Fogt has extensive experience and education working with diverse populations from professional athletes to morbidly obese. He understands the most beneficial exercise prescription to achieve optimal results and is able to motivate all patient types to stay consistent in working toward their goals. Additionally, his methods have proven effective and safe as he demonstrates exercises with attention to proper form to avoid injury.
Fogt has established himself as a national leader in his field and has successfully implemented progressive solutions to delivering physical therapy. He has bridged the gap between physical therapy and fitness by opening Evolution Fitness, which uses licensed physical therapists to teach high intensity circuit training fitness classes. He also founded the first exclusive prenatal and postnatal physical therapy clinic in the country. Mr. Fogt is a leader in advancing the profession to incorporate research-based methods and focus on, not only rehabilitation but also wellness, functional fitness, performance, and prevention. He is able to recognize that the national healthcare structure (federal and private insurance) is moving toward a model of prevention.
TRACKABLE PHYSICAL THERAPY
The exercise DMpt prescription and instruction will be delivered with a series of on-line videos easily accessed by each patient on the internet. Each video will be 30 minutes in length with exercises, which will specifically address the common impairments associated with diabetes and/or obesity.
Exercise programs will be able to be performed within each patient’s own home or work location without requiring standard gym equipment.
Each patient will be required to log in to the system, Upon conclusion of the prescribed exercise prescription, each successful patient shall be given the option of continuing to have access to the library of videos for continued independent progression for a nominal fee.
New video content with exercises specifically designed for the assigned population prescribed and demonstrated by a licensed physical therapist will be shot to maintain interest in the exercises among the viewing audience with monitoring performed automatically to ensure their compliance.
Each patient will be required to follow up with their referring physician at designated intervals and metrics such as blood pressure, blood sugars, BMI, etc. will be recorded to ensure success of the program.
TRACKABLE VIDEO EXERCISE PROGRAM
The ON-LINE DMpt video content will include all aspects of wellness preventative care to ensure the best results: cardiovascular training, resistance training, flexibility, and balance and stabilization.
Research studies on all the four distinct impairment have proven efficacious. Each video will integrate each of the four components to guarantee a comprehensive approach to the wellness program, but each video will specifically highlight one of the four components.
All of our DMpt video content will be fully mobile application compliant and are also available on all Desktops, Tablets, PC’s and MAC computers and devises.
Multiple DMpt exercise videos will be shot to improve adherence to the program and limit redundancy for the patients. Recognizable athletes and celebrities shall be recruited to participate as subjects in the videos to improve interest for the patients and improve compliance.
SPECIFIC VIDEO PROGRAMS
Each MHC patient would receive a prescription for a series of three 8-week DMpt courses (24 weeks) in total of physical therapy and exercise that is provided by viewing on-line programs produced by EWC where the patient can do these exercises and stretching on their own at least 3-days per week for at least 30 minutes. There would be a total of 8 videos in each DMpt series.
The DMpt videos can be watched on a smart phone, I-pad or desktop. In order to view the videos the patient would log onto the EWC web-site and would directed to watch the appropriate video in sequence. As they are logged-in, EWC will be able to monitor how often and if the entire video session was viewed. This data would be captured and every week would be sent the prescribing MHC physician and EWC physical therapist (“PT”) for review.
If the patient is not viewing the videos, then the prescribing MHC physician and/or the EWC PT would reach out to the patient by telephone and/or e-mail to encourage the patient to keep up their physical fitness regime. After each series the patient returns for an office visit to MHC for blood tests, blood pressure and weight management check up as well as a follow-up visit with the physical therapist for assessment of patient’s progress toward established goals.
These DMpt videos can be watched so that a lot of the instruction and perhaps even biofeedback can be done while walking and being outside and/or at your office desk.
EXERCISE PATIENT KITS
Each patient shall be provided a home exercise tool kit, which will includes: an inflatable exercise ball, a hand pump, a yoga mat, a yoga strap, and varying levels of resistance bands.
Each of the DMpt exercise videos will include exercises that incorporate the items given in the tool kit. By using a bare minimum of equipment, patients should be able to participate more easily at home or at their workplace. The estimated cost of the Exercise patient kit is $49.99, this amount will be refundable to the patient if they complete the program.
Bands: (each patient would get 3 various resist bands)
UP HEALTH MONITORING BANDS
In conjunction with the video program each patient would also receive UP Jawbone Health Monitor band. https://jawbone.com/up #system. Track every move, including to distance, calories burned, active time, sleep time and quality, and activity intensity. The Jawbone has a price of $99.99 per unit, this amount will be refundable to the patient if they complete the program.
UP™ is a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.
UP was designed to fit seamlessly in people’s lives. Real life. It’s a thoughtful combination of engineering and design, custom-made for how we live. UP is both flexible and strong. Sometimes UP needs to slide smoothly under sleeves or bend to accommodate an active lifestyle. Other times it has to be strong enough to stand up to a snowball fight without a problem (or more likely, a few thousand showers). Day and night, UP is right there with you.
iBGSTAR (For Diabetic Patients Only)
In addition to Jawbone monitoring system and access to exercise videos, patients will receive an iBGStar blood glucose monitoring system. Data from self-monitoring will be captured and monitored throughout the program.
The innovative iBGStar® is the first blood glucose meter that can be used on its own or connected directly to an Apple iPhone® or iPod touch® to easily display, manage and communicate your diabetes information. The iBGStar meets today’s industry standards for accuracy.
iBGStar is anticipated to be reimbursable through insurance submittal with physician prescription, with a cost of $29.99.
Billing & Reimbursement Cycles: We anticipate that EWC will submit bills to their patients insurance companies on a daily basis. MHI will charge EWC a fixed billing fee for any services provided.
PT Evaluations, Re-evaluations and Physical tests would be performed by EWC staff that will be located at selected MHC facilities, affiliated physician offices and non-affiliated physician offices.
Upon conclusion of the prescribed exercise prescription, each successful patient shall be given the option of continuing to have access to the library of videos for continued independent progression for a nominal fee of $29.99 for a one-year program extension.
New video content with exercises specifically designed for the assigned population prescribed and demonstrated by a licensed physical therapist will be shot to maintain interest in the exercises among the viewing audience.
