The Moscow Centre for Innovative Technologies in Health Care will test a complex for the rehabilitation of children after musculoskeletal injuries. It will be used at the Clinical and Research Institute of Urgent Pediatric Surgery and Traumatology to rehabilitate children aged 7 to 16 with the consequences of upper and lower extremity injuries and uncomplicated compression fractures of the spine.

"We are testing an innovative system, called the Habilect complex, that will improve the rehabilitation of children and adolescents with musculoskeletal injuries. The new technology will both systematize the patient’s data for the clinician's convenience and use game-enhancing elements to engage children in the recovery process after serious trauma. We hope that results of the pilot study will make rehabilitation more accessible," said General Director of the Moscow Centre for Innovative Technologies in Health Care Vyacheslav Shulenin.

The Habilect Rehabilitation System is a hardware and software system consisting of a laptop computer with a camera and an online screen where tasks for a patient and current indicators required by the physician are displayed. Medics will be able to assess the balance of gait and stress on the joints, and the game-oriented process will make the treatment easier for children.

The pilot study will assess the prospects of implementing the complex in medical institutions of Moscow, increase the availability of medical services and systematize data on motor rehabilitation through measurable performance indicators.

According to Svetlana Valiullina, chief pediatric rehabilitation therapist of Moscow, first deputy director of the Clinical and Research Institute of Urgent Pediatric Surgery and Traumatology, about 400 thousand children suffered musculoskeletal injuries in Moscow in 2019 alone. Over two thousand children have uncomplicated compression fractures of the spine each year. Almost every second child in the country aged 7 to 17 has a posture disorder.

Previously, the Moscow Centre for Innovation in Healthcare jointly with one of the networks of private clinics created Russia's first accelerator program, where startups will test pilot projects in Moscow medical institutions. Winners will receive up to two million rubles to cover expenses for their project development. Registration for participation will be accepted until 1 December.
