Curvait Clinical Research, a virtual contract research organization (VCRO) that specializes in decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) for digital therapeutics (DTx), revealed in a company press release that it was chosen for a study of MR-001, MedRhythms' neurorehabilitation system designed to improve walking and ambulation in adults with chronic stroke walking impairments. As part of the collaboration, Curvait will be responsible for managing all aspects of MedRhythms' hybrid decentralized clinical trial (DCT) – from protocol finalization and Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals to patient recruitment, testing at physical sites, remote site and patient monitoring and healthcare economics and outcomes analysis.

"As innovators in healthcare, it's essential to show that new technologies not only have the power to transform patients' lives but are also economically prudent. Health economics research quantifies the long-term financial impact for patients, providers, and payers," said Owen McCarthy, president, co-founder, MedRhythms. "Curavit's tech-enabled approach to research lets us launch quickly while delivering a premier experience for everyone involved. As important, the study will be open to participants nearly nation-wide, thanks to Curavit's virtual site solution, patient recruitment process, and smart strategies for collecting real-world healthcare economics data."
