ACTIVEHIP+: Rehabilitating older people after a hip fracture


ACTIVEHIP+ is an educational and tele-rehabilitation programme for patients who have undergone surgery after suffering a hip fracture or have needed a hip replacement.

The programme provides advice and training for patients and caregivers to enhance functional recovery, favouring the patient’s independence to carry out daily activities and helping to improve their overall quality of life.

Accessible via an online platform and mobile app, the programme allows for more continuity of care through remote monitoring by healthcare providers, and gives patients and caregivers a more active role in the recovery process.
