Study Information

Primary Objective: This research project aims to evaluate the usability and effectiveness of a self-guided, digital rehabilitation platform intervention (Rhea Health’s Active Recovery) for the treatment of individuals with a concussion.

The use of a personal active rehabilitation plan following a concussion may help with symptoms and recovery. Mobile health (mHealth) technologies can be used to help with the self-management of a variety of health conditions. Also, mHealth technologies can help provide resources, send reminders, and personalize information in real time. The Rhea mobile tool gives users a personal exercise program to help with concussion recovery. The goal of this study is to assess the ease of use of the Rhea and identify areas to improve the app.

What is involved?

  • Use the Rhea App for 4 weeks (28 days).
  • Complete all questionnaires and recommended exercises.
  • Estimated 3-5 hour time commitment over 28 day period.

Who Can Participate?

  • People who have been diagnosed with a concussion by a physician.
  • 16 years old and above.
  • If you are able to speak and understand English.

Benefits
