What started as an idea in MedTech Innovation at UCLA has blossomed into a real opportunity to improve the lives of people going through Physical Therapy. SaRA simplifies recovery by eliminating inefficiencies, motivating patients, and keeping providers informed of progress.

Our Mission

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. Our focus on simplifying recovery will increase patient compliance, decrease opioid dependence and bring a higher quality of life to patients.
