New digital health company launched in Nashville
TheraVista Health Inc. provides a remote monitoring platform for rehabilitation patients who are affected by inner ear and balance issues. Its secret sauce is turning vestibular rehabilitation exercises into fun and engaging games in order to make at-home therapy more enjoyable and increase patient adherence.
The new corporation is based in Nashville and provides a remote monitoring platform for rehabilitation patients who are affected by inner ear and balance issues. The company began operations earlier this year with four employees and also launched a platform that digitizes traditional vestibular exercises into fun and engaging tablet-based games. The treatment program is customized and managed by the patient’s therapist and allows for remote therapeutic monitoring and reimbursement.
TheraVista Health was born out of a National Institutes of Health-funded research project that was awarded to CFD Research Corporation in 2018. The goal: turn vestibular rehabilitation exercises into fun and engaging games in order to make at-home therapy more enjoyable and increase patient adherence. Since then, TheraVista Health has grown into a complete solution for at-home therapy that supports improved outcomes.
“TheraVista Health is a new option for vestibular rehabilitation,” said Scott Frederick, TheraVista Health’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our platform brings the benefits of traditional vestibular therapy into the digital age, making it more convenient and engaging for patients, and more efficient for therapists. We believe this will greatly improve patient outcomes and make vestibular therapy more accessible to those who need it.”
