Reduced joint pain

After 1 year with Joint Academy, patients reduce their joint pain with 44 % 1, on average. This is measured through patient reports on an NRS (numeric) scale on a weekly basis.

Increased physical function

Patients who use Joint Academy for 1 year notice an improvement of physical function of 40 % 1 on average. This is measured through an objective test of physical function where the patient stands up from a chair as many times as they can in 30 seconds.

No pills. No surgery. Just healthier joints.

Cost effective

Digital care has the potential to reduce the cost of healthcare. The cost of the Joint Academy’s digital treatment is about 75 % less compared with in-person treatment at physical clinics according to a socio-economic study from Lund University.
