A successful trial has recently paved the way for a larger implementation of DigiRehab in Aalborg.
The trial with 75 citizens showed the following results:
For the group of citizens (63%) that completed the 12 weeks of training the need for home care increased on average with 88 minutes/week/citizen.
12 months after the training period 90 % of these citizens still had a reduced need for help – on average 64 minutes/week/citizen.
DigiRehab is also used in several other Danish municipalities.
both staff and citizens think about rehabilitation. Elderly citizens have learned how training can improve their quality of life.” – Line Ballisager Juhl, Team Leader of Home Care in Vejen Municipality. After 12 weeks of exercise with the tailored programs, the average citizen’s need for home care decreases with 45 minutes per week.
