On 2015 Prof. Rebecca Russo, Prof.Stefano Zaffagnini, III Orthopaedics Clinic Team at Rizzoli Institute, Bologna, directed from Prof. Maurilio Marcacci, will collaborate with Prof. Giacomo Rizzolatti, Director of the Neuroscience Department, Parma University and with his Team, for the realization of a new Scientific Research integrating Videoinsight® and Neuroscience.
In 2013 the second Scientific Research for the Application of the Videoinsight® method in Medicine started at Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute in Bologna, Italy. The name of this new Videoinsight® Research was Video-TKA. It was an experimental Research Protocol regularly approved by the Ethical Committee and followed the most rigorous scientific methods of International Research Protocols. The title was ‘The use of Videoinsight® Method to improve the physical recovery after cemented total knee prosthetic implant’. The study was performed in collaboration with the Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Department of Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute directed by Professor M.G. Benedetti and with the Second Orhtopaedic Department of Bologna University. In this Scientific Study 100 elderly patients that underwent total knee prosthesis performed the Rehabilitation Program with the support of Videoinsight® method. Specifically medical equipe showed four art videos selected for their High Videoinsight® Impact to 100 old patients that performed Rehabilitation protocol after TKA surgery. The objective of the study was that ‘The use of Videoinsight® method positively influenced the pain level and the functional post-operative recovery of patients operated of total knee prosthesis at 3 months follow-up’.
Rebecca Russo has presented for the first time new significant Medical Results of the Videoinsight® ‘TKA’ Research in the National Sigascot Congress Complex Knee Arthroplasty from Primary to Revision in Turin, Unione Industriale, on 5th March 2015.

June 2014 OrthoEvidence – Videoinsight® Research
After careful review of current orthopaedic evidence, OrthoEvidence (OE) has selected Videoinsight® Clinical Research for an OE appraisal.OE is a knowledge dissemination portal led by Dr. Mohit Bhandari (Professor and Academic Head, Orthopaedics, McMaster University) and currently has over 10,000 members.

Zaffagnini S. – Russo R.L “The Videoinsight® Method: Improving Rehabilitation Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: a Preliminary Study”
In May 2013 it has been realized, in the Civil Hospital of Pescara, the first application of the Videoinsight® Method in Paediatrics, in the department headed by Prof. Pierluigi Lelli Chiesa. Rebecca Russo has shown selected artist videos to some hospitalized children, even to those presenting severe clinical impairments.
In January 2012 Rebecca Russo introduced the Videoinsight® Method in an Experimental Annual Medical Research, regularly approved by the Istitutional Ethical Committee. This first Research has been performed with the most rigorous methods of International Research Protocol and has been conducted at Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute in Bologna. The title of the study was “VIDEO-ACL RESEARCH. The application of Videoinsight® Method to improve the functional recovery after Anterior Cruciate ligament reconstruction”. The experimental protocol has been conducted in collaboration with Professor Maurilio Marcacci and Professor Stefano Zaffagnini’s Equipe. Specifically Rebecca Russo has shown to 100 adult patients, during the rehabilitation program, 16 artistic videos selected and evaluated according to their high or low Videoinsight® Impact. The objective of the study has been to evaluate the efficacy of Videoinsight® Method in improving and speed up the functional recovery of patients during the rehabilitation phase after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery of the knee.
For the first time Contemporary Art is used according to this innovative approach in Medicine, as a Rehabilitation support.
The results of this Research have been significative and have been published in International Scientific Journals in January 2013.
The Application of the Videoinsight® Method is moving on.
At International level a Pilot Multicentric Study is running for the Application of the Videoinsight® Method in Therapy to treat the anterior knee Pain of young patients with patello-femoral problems not suitable for surgical treatment.
This study is performed simultaneously:
– in Usa, at University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis Orthopaedic Surgery Center, directed by Professor Elisabeth Arendt
– in France, at Lyon Orthoclinic Chirurgie du Sport et de l’Arthrose, directed by Doctor David Dejour
– in Japan, at Kobe University, in cooperation with Professor Ryosuke Kuroda
– in Italy, at Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute in Bologna, Professor Maurilio Marcacci and Professor Stefano Zaffagnini
It is the third experimental application of the Videoinsight® Method in Medicine.
Moreover is the first International Muticentric Experimental application of Videoinsight® Method in Medicine.
For the first time the Videoinsight® Method is utilized as a Therapy and not only as a support to a post surgical Rehabilitation protocol.
