The Future of Physical Therapy

"The future is already here - its just not evenly distributed"

William Gibson's most famous (and over-quoted) quote. He also coined the word cyberspace and won the Triple Crown of science fiction literature: the Nebula award, the Hugo award, and the Philip K. Dick Award for his first novel, Neuromancer.

But, today I want to tell you about some physical therapy writers - or, more accurately, their work.

First, is a new, fascinating article in PT in Motion called Virtual Realities: Visions of Science, Technology, and Physical Therapy - Virtual Realities beyond 2020.

You'll read about...

  • augmented reality of stroke patients moving their limbs
  • holograms of patients homes
  • robots in the clinic
  • exoskeletons helping kids walk
  • and more...
And, this article I wrote for Advance for Physical Therapy called Future Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Directions that describes...
  • video documentation of patient movements
  • interoperable patient records in the PT clinic
  • smart phones used easily in the PT clinic
  • scheduling patients with text messages
  • and more...
Its an exciting time to be a physical therapist.

Are you ready for it?
