The science behind Active Recovery

See the highlights from clinical trials and other research studies into Active Recovery.

Individuals who completed a combination of neck and vision exercises were 3.91 times more likely to be recovered at eight weeks.

Schneider and colleagues, 2014

A minimum of 160 minutes of exercise per week was associated with symptom resolution after the first month of recovery.

Howell and colleagues, 2021

Early aerobic exercise may reduce the duration of symptoms following recovery while having little to no adverse effects.

Hattrup, Gray, Krumholtz & Valovich Mcleod, 2019

Aerobic exercise is both safe and feasible for symptomatic adult patients, helping with faster resolution of symptoms.

Micay, Richards & Hutchison, 2018

Earlier initiation of aerobic exercise within the first week of injury was associated with a faster full return to sport, school or work.

Lawrence, Richards, Comper & Hutchison, 2018

Results from monitoring active rehabilitation programs showed that submaximal exercise was safe and may be of benefit in facilitating recovery.

McCrory and colleagues, 2017

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) increased after aerobic exercise, providing some cognitive and mood benefits.

Dinoff and colleagues, 2016

An active rehabilitation intervention increases quality of life, decreases anger, and potential increases energy level and balance.

Gauvin-Legage and colleagues, 2020

Education about energy management is an important ingredient of the active rehabilitation intervention for youth with concussion.

Hunt and colleagues, 2018
Ongoing research
We’re already seeing promising results

We’re currently conducting a large-scale usability study with Rhea across many different mechanisms including patients who have suffered from falls, work-related injuries, sports concussions and more. These cases cover the acute to the persistent, from injuries that happened one week ago to one year ago.

We’re hoping to publish our results in late 2021. In the meantime, see our FAQs to learn the basics about Rhea.
