Patient Inspirations Part 2: So, What Inspires our Patients?
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty! Over a 11-month data collection period, we had 186 patients submit their inspirations to us last year. (Obviously, with plenty more that still currently are sent!)
Following discussion with several clinicians, medical staff members, and patients, inspirations were divided into six groups:
Essential activities or activities of daily living
Psychological benefits (quality of life, inspire others, feeling “normal,” etc…)
And here is what we have preliminarily found…
Overall Rankings (Many patients listed multiple reasons)
Psychological benefits (quality of life, inspire others, feeling “normal”) 30.65%
Non-essential activities/hobbies/sports 21.51%
Pain relief: 10.22%
Essential activities or activities of daily living: 1.08%
Here’s our breakdown by Age, Gender, and Knee vs Hip replacement
What does this all mean?
