The 2024 MedTech Breakthrough Award recognizes the breakthrough innovation of Orthofix’s STIM onTrack mobile app that tracks patient compliance data from their bone stimulation device, which is prescribed after a fracture injury, lumbar or cervical fusion.

The STIM onTrack mobile app works with the latest generation CervicalStim, SpinalStim, and PhysioStim bone growth therapy devices. These devices are approved by the FDA and provide patients with a safe and effective nonsurgical treatment to improve nonunion fractures and spinal fusion healing. By providing a hyper-targeted experience, the mobile app addresses unique patient needs related to bone healing.

Featuring daily treatment reminders and device usage calendars, patients can stay on schedule with their treatments. The mobile app also allows patients to fill out patient reported outcome measures and submit pain scores and transmit them to their physicians, allowing for remote monitoring in between appointments.

The STIM onTrack app also provides links to educational patient resources and connects patients with Orthofix’s Patient Care team to help ensure patients understand their treatment regimens.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized for the second year in a row as a winner of the Medtech Awards – this year for Best Patient Experience Solution,” said Jason Shallenberger, President of Bone Growth Therapies. “Orthofix was the first company in this space to recognize the importance of patient engagement in their own recovery by utilizing our STIM onTrack app. This allows patients to report a variety of information back to their physician such as pain scores and treatment compliance among other things.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and Privacy, and many more.
