How to Track Physical Therapy Progress

The Reach Outcomes team constantly pursues an integrated approach to bring Austin, Texas the best sports physical therapy experience. To stay even more connected with our athletes, we will be partnering with Smartabase, an internationally-recognized human performance data system, that will help us to better track your physical therapy progress. Used by more than 250,000 athletes, 8,000 professionals, more than 250 health performance organizations and some of the world’s most recognized athletic teams, Smartabase is a data-driven system that will connect athletes with our team. This holistic system perfectly fits the Reach Outcomes’ drive to offer athletes the best in all areas of human performance and we are eager to implement it in the coming months.

While there are various benefits in using Smartabase, perhaps the most defining characteristic is its ability to track virtually every aspect of athletic performance and recovery. Smartabase’s data collection includes movement screening, physical competency, workload monitoring, performance monitoring, cognitive and psychological analyzation, physiological monitoring and nutrition and supplementation tracking. These encompassing offerings, as well as Smartabases’ ability to integrate with dozens of fitness-tracking devices, will allow our team to provide an even deeper level of guidance to athletes. Integrations seamlessly transfer an athlete’s data to the Smartabase system. For any systems not supported by Smartabase, data can be manually uploaded in an easy fashion.

Like every athlete, training routines are unique and require special attention, which Smartabase and Reach Outcomes encourage. Just as we pursue our individualized approach to rehabilitation, Smartabase allows for personalized configuration in creating an individual’s page in the software. This configuration allows both athletes and our team the ability to modify the Smartabase system, its features and toolsets. 

Smartabase can be used as both a mobile app and on desktop, ensuring that our athletes and providers have access to real-time connectivity. Instant access to Smartabase will help strengthen the system Reach Outcomes is proud to offer. Along with all other aspects of human performance included in Smartabase, athletes can share real-time updates on current injuries and even report new injuries. This will further strengthen the communication between athletes and their providers, ultimately paving the way for a more efficient rehabilitation process. With knowledge of an injury, as well as access to an athlete’s nutrition intake, incremental exercise data and an overall wellness score, the Reach team will be able to provide a more well-informed and updated physical therapy program day by day.

Athletes’ goals change, and with these changes, our training systems do as well. Smartabase will allow our clinicians to further implement a holistic approach to rehabilitation that is specific and personalized to the athlete’s current needs and training focus. This addition will be crucial with Reach’s focus on different physical therapy training styles in different parts of athletes’ seasons. For instance, using this tool during our strength-focused block in our development phase will illustrate that our athletes are actually receiving the focus in the areas they need. 

Our team will begin trials with the Smartabase system in the next few weeks to find the best tools for athletes. We are excited to bring this revolutionary item to our determined athletes and physical therapy candidates. Expect to see the Smartabase offering in Austin at Reach Outcomes by the end of this summer!
