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.
