EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION SOFTWARE
Any tool that can help people be more active and involved in their own rehabilitation is worthwhile. An increase in patient compliance can be achieved by making exercise programs easier to adhere to. Clear descriptions of how to perform exercises correctly is also critical to the success of any exercise program. Here is a list of software applications that allow physical therapists to create specific exercise programs for their patients. The list is not complete. If you know of a product that should be included please let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page.
