Interview with HealthSonix CEO Michael Ivezic (HSXI)


Clinical Results

To objectively monitor pre and post response to the Arthritis Treatment Centers treatments, patients are requested to complete the WOMAC (lower extremities) or DASH (upper extremities) questionnaires, which probe for clinically important, patient-relevant symptoms in the areas of pain, stiffness and physical function.

The WOMAC instrument is one of two recognized by the FDA for use in all arthritis clinical research studies. Arthritis Treatment Centers has made WOMAC assessments a standard practice in the centers' daily operations.

After the baseline arthritis index is created, patient-specific treatment goals are defined. This helps the patient visualize their progress and allows treatment centers professionals to standardize patient progress reports to referring doctors. The WOMAC reports also give our clinicians valuable feedback and are a key to refining the ongoing longer-term treatment protocols and exercise programs.

From 385 patients who completed the basic course of 10 treatments sessions, the documented results in the Toronto clinic were as follows:
