SaRA: THE SIMPLIFYING RECOVERY ASSISTANT
Simplifying recovery to help bring a higher quality of life
About Us

SaRA is a digital platform for effective patient-clinician interaction

SaRA simplifies recovery by eliminating inefficiencies, motivating patients, and keeping providers informed of progress. We will flip the patient mindset from doing their home exercises “because their PT said so” to patients doing their exercises because they want to do them.
