Video Tools To Support Patient Empowerment In Orthopaedic Revalidation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review


This paper reports an exploratory study into tools for post-operation revalidation from joint replacement. In the project, two design teams
developed and evaluated two early concepts for revalidation support collaboratively with a physiotherapist and two patients. The concepts
were 1) a patient-led, unscripted video tool and 2) a game-like scripted video tool serving patientphysiotherapist communication. Other key
stakeholders are the orthopaedic surgeon who, along with the design researcher and others, are the driving participants in a longer-term research
collaboration. The design case studies revealed their potential for patient empowerment in that the patients became motivated by the connection with
their daily lives, and in that the tools supported their conversation with their physiotherapist. However, challenges remained in the application
of the results in the current distribution of stakeholder roles. The paper discusses the challenges and offers up initial directions for shifts in roles.
