New study shows Hinge Health wearable sensors and coaching significantly improves chronic knee pain without opioids or surgery
Hinge Health, based in Silicon Valley, is the first digital health company to demonstrate that a mobile-first, at-home exercise therapy and behavioral coaching solution improves outcomes for chronic knee pain by 61% and elective surgeries by 63%. Founded in 2014 by clinical researchers, Hinge Health is a rare digital health company to choose the higher hurdle of demonstrating statistically significant outcomes in a pre-registered randomized control trial (N=162).
In an analysis of participants that completed the clinical trial intervention, published April 2018 in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the Hinge Health treatment group achieved 61% improvement in Visual Analog Scale (VAS) pain from baseline compared to 21% improvement by the control group (P<0.001). Likelihood of surgery decreased in the Hinge Health treatment group from 63% compared to 17% in the control group. A cost-benefit analysis estimates that the study’s employer saved $438,000 in avoided surgeries across the 101 participants in the Hinge Health treatment group. Participants who completed the program averaged 3.3 exercise therapy sessions per week and engagement each week averaged 80%.
