The survey of more than 20 million therapy sessions by Boston-based Constant Therapy is in line with reports from mHealth advocates who say home-based physical and cognitive therapy programs can improve outcomes and frequency…According to Cooper, in analyzing more than 20,000 sessions on Constant Therapy’s NeuroPerformance Engine, the company saw a 15 percent improvement in language and cognitive exercises among patient with severe disabilities who completed 100 exercises; that improvement jumped to 40 percent after 500 exercises. Processing speed in language and cognitive exercises, meanwhile, improved by 20 percent after 100 exercises and a whopping 80 percent after 500 exercises.
