Title: Future of Rehab and Mobility

An unprecedented amount of change is coming to our largely analog and institution-centered health systems in this era of digitization and democratization. Dr. Khayat will explore how consumer pull, outdated/unsustainable business models, and emerging technologies are accelerating the shift towards the future of rehab and mobility that is markedly different from what it has been for the past half century or more.
