8 reasons why you should use Pheezee
Pheezee is a pocket size wearable device by startoon labs that can be worn by the patient
while doing physiotherapy sessions. The device gives a real time biofeedback of range of
motion and electromyogram (EMG) of the recruited muscle. The device connects wirelessly
to an android phone/tablet to display reports. The physiotherapist can see session wise,
week wise, month wise and over all progress report as and when needed.
Pheezee offers scientific support for the treatment. It is used by the therapist both in the
clinical setting and at home. Pheezee is appropriate for upper limb, lower limb, and spinal
cord evaluations. It is a useful tool for real-time monitoring and tracking of a patient's
recovery. It generates reports at the end of each session that can be shared with the
patients. You can keep track of all your patients' progress using the pheezee dashboard.
Pheezee works by measuring patient’s muscle response to nerve’s stimulation of the muscle
via EMG as well as other metrics like Range of Motion, Repetition counting etc.
Pheezee has an onboard ARM microcontroller and motion sensors for data acquisition and
processing in order to measure range of motion. Pheezee is made up of two modules, one
worn above the ankle and one below the ankle. The device is wirelessly connected to an
Android phone to measure ROM in real time while exercising. For ROM measurement, the
device has the lowest count of 1 degree. Twenty healthy subjects were tested for ROM while
performing dorsiflexion and plantar flexion. The accuracy of ROM measurements was found
to be 96 percent when compared to a traditional CE certified goniometer and digital
goniometer app, Goniometer Records (released by Indian Orthopedic Research Group).
∙ Biofeedback through measuring muscle contractions
∙ Dynamic range of motion measures
∙ Session wise reports
∙ Incremental recovery data
∙ Prompts when patient reaches targets
∙ Report generation and sharing with doctors & care takers
∙ Remote monitoring when patient is not in rehab
i.Encourages patients performance- Pheezee can measure even the least count of 1
degree. This feature builds confidence in the patients as they are able to track even the
minute details of their recovery.
ii.Bio feedback- With the help of thermometer we can measure the temperature of body
likewise Pheezee monitors and tracks the patients progress. It gives instant ROM &
EMG feedback on the Pheezee home app which guides physiotherapist to do any
alternative changes, if needed.
iii.Muscle activity- Pheezee tracks muscle activity using surface EMG biofeedback. It
works on eight major joints with tracking 40+movements and 400+ muscles. It identifies
minute movements of muscles and its application areas include Orthopaedics, Spine
injuries, Sports injuries, Neurology, and Trauma.
iv.Recovery tracking- Pheezee provides live monitoring and real time reporting which
makes it easy for Physiotherapist to understand the progress and explain it to the
patients. With its remote monitoring feature, patients can even have the information at
the comfort of their home.
Apart from easing the process of recovery, it also provides Business value
to physiotherapist. Now Physiotherapist can track patients progress, increases
patient retention, can increase revenue by 20% and is affordable as it provides many
benefits to its user.
i.Track Patient adherence- With the help of Pheezee, Physiotherapist can even track
minute details over the app. They can track whether the patient is doing exercise,
what is the progress etc. Based on these things, patient counselling can be
ii.Increase patient Retention- Pheezee, along with providing benefits to
physiotherapist, provides benefits to Patients as well. It builds confidence in the
patient because they can see the tangible progress happening in the body or effected
iii.Increase revenue- This device helps Physiotherapist in increasing their revenue
through paper use model. They can charge each time the report is generated.
Pheezee reports alone can increase Physiotherapist revenue by 20%.
iv.Feasible and affordable- Pheezee, the world first smart physiotherapy toolkit
provides many benefits to its user for example easy to use, remote monitoring,
shareable reports, Live monitoring, audio as well as visual feedback. These features
at an affordable cost has made Pheezee feasible for Physiotherapist.
It can be concluded PHEEZEE is a boon in physiotherapy field and have a lot of scope in
1.Keep track of multiple patients at a time.
2.Save time from manual data entry of every Physio session, thus helping to treat more
patients in a given time.
3.As every result is in the form of a quantifiable report, this increases trust and
transparency between doctor and patients.
4.Eliminate time and energy used in machines like Goniometer, Dynamo meter, EMG
5.Provide you a substitute for bulky machines like EMG,and more by having a pocket
6.Track the patient's recovery over a period of time, just on a click.
7.Usage provides an increase in revenue as physio treats more patients in a given
time.Allow them to work from both Clinic/Hospital and Home with the same
