Pulse is the software platform which we use to collect our data. The Pulse dataset is comprised out of 8 dedicated measurement tracks containing data on:

  • Medical, demographic and psychological characteristics of patients with hand and wrist disorders.

  • Details on the (non)surgical treatment and the type and amount of hand therapy.

  • Outcomes (PROM data) measured at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6 and 12 month after start of treatment. 

  • Description of experiences during the healthcare process (PREM data).

Data is collected as part of the regular healthcare process at Xpert Clinic and Handtherapie Nederland, shown here on the right. Xpert Clinic and Handtherapie Nederland are a group of clinics providing specialized primairy (PT and OT) and secondary care (surgery and rehab) for hand and wrist disorders.
