mymobility® with Apple Watch®
Personalized support throughout your orthopedic journey
Wherever you are on your orthopedic journey, Zimmer Biomet’s mymobility® with Apple Watch® has the information you need to prepare for and recover from treatment*. Our app gives you constant connection to your care team, so you’ll receive helpful reminders, progress reports and support that’s unique to you. It’s a personalized way to keep you moving and keep you connected like never before.
*Patients must have a compatible smart phone to utilize mymobility. See the section below titled Smart Phone Compatibility
Preparing for and recovering from your orthopedic procedure can seem overwhelming. Knowing what to expect and receiving timely reminders can help ease the process as you approach your surgery date.
mymobility keeps you connected to your surgeon and care team throughout this process to assist you in many ways, including:
- Understanding your condition and optimizing your health prior to surgery
- Learning what to expect the day of surgery
- Knowing steps to help minimize complications after surgery
- Offering guidance as you work toward regaining mobility
Encrypted messaging within the app allows you to send videos, pictures and/or text messages to your surgeon and care team without the need for an appointment.
After surgery your surgeon will likely assign daily exercises aimed at regaining movement. Your surgeon may assign easy to follow video-guided exercises through the app. This allows you to perform the exercises in the comfort of your own home* while your surgeon and care team track progress remotely.
* Not all joint surgery patients are candidates for recovery at home.
Data about your activity levels and progress with your care plan is supplied to your surgeon and care team to help them determine your need for extra direction or follow-up care. After your surgery, they will also be able to watch and compare data to aid in your recovery process.
Every patient’s orthopedic journey is unique. In addition to helpful reminders, progress reports and support, the mymobility app allows you to rate and share your satisfaction with your progress in real time.
