For patients undergoing physical therapy, a new app, Physioadvisor, allows patients to carry out physical therapy exercises in the comfort of their own home.  Users can choose from a variety of exercises to complete and each exercise includes a detailed description and a picture showing how to complete it.  The app includes a “reminder” feature to remind patients that it is time for exercise.  When downloaded before a physical therapy session, the therapist can personalize a set of exercises for the patient to follow after the initial session is over.  The addition of videos to accompany each exercise may be something the company can incorporate for more ease of use but as is, Physioadvisor will benefit patients who need physical therapy reinforcement at home.
