Life is full of coincidences, occasionally extraordinary. The artist Janet Biggs created the video dedicated to Alzheimer’s Disease ‘I Can’t Find My Way Home’ 2015 (part of the Videoinsight® Collection) while Videoinsight® Foundation launched in Italy the first innovative ‘Videoinsight® Rehabilitation Project for Patients with Alzheimer’syndrome’.

The Application of the Videoinsight® Method by Rebecca Russo in Medicine is moving on.
Since March 2015 Videoinsight® Foundation started a new collaboration with Alfredo Schiavone Panni, Professor at Molise University, Departments of Medicine and Well – Being Sciences. Professor A. Schiavone Panni participates to the Pilot Multicentric International Study ‘PF- PROJECT’, 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 E. Arendt
– in France at the Lyon Orthoclinic Chirurgie du Sport et de l’Arthrose directed by Doctor D. Dejour
– in Japan at Kobe University in cooperation with Professor R. Kuroda
– in Italy at Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute Bologna in collaboration with Professor M. Marcacci and Professor S. Zaffagnini
PF Project is the third experimental application of the Videoinsight® Method in Medicine.
Moreover is the first International Multicentric experimental Application of Videoinsight® Method in Medicine in the World. For the first time the Videoinsight® Method is applied as a Therapy and not only as a support to a post surgical Rehabilitation protocol.
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.

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.
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.
