Talking Tendons Episode 3: Technology focused systematic reviews that will change your practice

The podcast this week focuses on some cool new work in the technology space. I’m inspired by The Patient Will See You Now by Dr Eric Topol which I recently read so this week’s podcast covers two technology focused systematic reviews. The first is on the efficacy of “exergames” for treating musculoskeletal pain, and the second is on basically the use of accelerometers and other wearable sensors to monitor rehab exercises.

An exciting area that is set to grow hugely and will be part of all of our practices soon. Enjoy!
