During the first wave of intensive care unit admissions with COVID-19, in response to the constraints of social distancing we introduced a new digitally enabled critical care rehabilitation pathway. Using smartwatch technology, this pathway rapidly enabled our multidisciplinary team to observe the recovery of a COVID-19 cohort across eight NHS acute hospitals across the south of England. This represents one of the geographically largest smartwatch studies of its kind.
