Ratings and Reviews
Not perfect, but a huge step forward!
I just had a total hip replacement done two weeks ago and this app has been a godsend, both pre-op and post-op. I found the videos of proper exercise technique very helpful and the ability to log these exercises as I complete them motivating.
The best feature, though, has been the ease with which I have been able to communicate with my care team. The surgeon, a nurse and the scheduler have all been able to answer questions both large and small on a surprisingly prompt basis. This has been such a relief to me and my family. Knowing that I am submitting data on my progress to the care team on a daily basis also gives me faith that if something is amiss, the care team will notice and respond. The data tracking feature has also been interesting to review.
There have been a few minor technical issues like app crashes on my iPhone, but this has not been disabling.
This is my third time recovering from a major surgical procedure and I have felt, by far, more supported and cared for by the hospital and physicians through this app. I can see why they are using this platform.
28 days post op for total hip replacement and during my first two weeks, Force was my physical therapist, my daily exercise planner and an easy way to communicate with the doctor and support staff. During first two weeks uploaded daily pictures and exchanged messages about many different things related to the surgery and my recovery. Since I have started PT the app still helps me to plan my day for the three sets of exercises, keeps track of my steps and provides easy way to send the occasional message. The Exercise Log is clunky, and the Progress page could be better. All in all very happy with the app!
Helpful but videos don’t work
I love using Force. It’s an easy way to communicate with my surgical team and my questions have been answered quickly. I don’t have to waste time calling and waiting on hold, so I don’t feel like I’m inconveniencing anyone. The information has been extremely helpful as I prepare for surgery.
However, I can’t watch the videos on the Force app. I have to login to the website to watch them. That needs to be fixed as videos are a large portion of the information given.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
