Connecting patient, families and physical therapists
In common treatment plans patients must undertake therapy exercises at home. In our research, the majority of patients do not continue their progress and achieve their desired results with self reported and unguided communication with their therapist in between visits. Patients either do not perform their exercises or do them incorrectly.
The key reason is a loss of motivation because they do not see fast results and do not feel empowered or informed about their treatment plan.
Actively participating in the care of their child and seeing the results clearly on a screen makes our families feel more successful. It has encouraged them to be more engaged to complete prescribed exercises. It affirms for parents that their time is making a difference.
- See progress in micro-goals

- Keeps patients and their carers accountable and motivated
- Low effort
Physical therapists tell us that 70% of patients do not complete their prescribed exercises at home when they say they do. Giving therapists visibility of patients daily habits and behaviors drives adherence to the rehabilitation plan and allows therapists to make personalized adjustments. It affirms for therapists that their time is making a difference.
