PhysioTools and GoodLife Technology have developed a service through which clients can receive their personalized exercise programs on their mobile devices. The service has been well received, showing that therapists are also currently undergoing a change towards digitalization.
In March 2016, PhysioTools and GoodLife Technology launched PT Momentum, a mobile app that works in connection with PhysioTools Online. PhysioTools has been used by professionals around the world since 1987. PT Momentum now adds a new and up-to-date option for delivering exercise programs to clients.
People are not always motivated to actually do the exercises they have been prescribed. The new PT Momentum mobile app adds an element of fun to encourage clients to reach a daily exercise target and reminds them to exercise.
Says Henrik Jürgens, CEO of GoodLife Technology, “The service has been very well received. We see a clear demand for the use of modern technology by therapists. We firmly believe that digital services are here to stay.”
Clients can see their daily exercises at a glance on any mobile device. The program comes with clear instructions, images and videos that ensure exercises are performed correctly. They can set daily reminders, check their recent and upcoming exercises, receive automatic alerts about updated exercise programs and monitor their progress.
A therapist creates an individual exercise program in PhysioTools Online, sends it to their client’s PT Momentum App, and monitors the resulting momentum value. This gives the therpist a great opportunity to review a client’s training program and assess their progress.
“We have gained thousands of users in a very short period of time. Currently the app is available in a number of countries in Northern and Central Europe, however, now we are launching PT Momentum worldwide, using PhysioTools’ comprehensive international sales channels. We are particularly pleased to announce that it will be available worldwide from March 2016,” Henrik Jürgens continues.
“It usually takes some time for changes to be adopted in our traditional therapy markets. The rapid growth rate in PT Momentum users has been a very pleasant surprise, on the other hand I believe that, as clients now regularly use digital services, they also expect their practitioner to do so.” Mika Huotari, CEO of PhysioTools adds.
PT Momentum is available for iOS and Android and can be downloaded free of charge from Google Play or the App Store.
