Even as a resident, it was an important task to motivate patients to go to rehab," says Dr. med. Sanjay Weber-Spickschen. With the GenuSport knee trainer, he has invented a digital training device that makes patients fit again faster. The team doctor of the German national athletics team and association doctor at the Lower Saxony Football Association invented the training device out of professional practice. Hundreds of patients have already had the best experience with the GenuSport knee trainer. The digital approach of the method also excited Matthias Schulz, MD. As an assistant physician, he supervised the clinical study on the GenuSport knee trainer at the Charité in Berlin for his doctoral thesis. Cornelia Körber will introduce you to this player and dive deep into the topic together with them. What do digital innovations mean for patients and young medical professionals?
