Galileo is the first technology designed to automatically collect amputee patients’ real-life activity data, then analyze and document it with minimal effort by the clinician.
Collecting accurate, objective data about amputees’ functional abilities in real-world conditions is notoriously difficult. Patient self-reports tend to be highly inaccurate, and clinic-based tests can be time consuming and rarely reflect typical activity.
However, clinicians need accurate information to decide which prosthetic components to apply and which K-Level to assign. And now, payers are increasingly demanding that O&P clinicians provide evidence of treatment outcomes to receive reimbursement of claims.
Step by step, Galileo™ tracks every burst of speed and walk around the block a patient with limb loss takes, and that can make the difference between a K2 or K3 rating for many patients. Testing a patient before and after treatment can demonstrate any changes in activity level and provides excellent evidence of outcomes. Galileo reports also list the safe lifetime for the patient's components, based on actual usage.
