Require physical therapy but the nearest therapist is far away in the next town? Never fear – if you have an iPad, check out the Motion Doctor iPad app by Conshohocken Physical Therapy and Blue Whale Web Solutions.
The Motion Doctor app is a video-enabled reference tool for consumers, patients and physical therapy practitioners, and is intended as a reference tool for those who desire to prevent pain and continue an active lifestyle. The app comes with 60 professionally shot videos that showcase the proper form for various physical therapy exercises, so that physical therapists that prescribe home exercise programs can use the app to guide patients on proper technique. Users can filter their recommended exercises by four main categories, including body parts, activity, sport, and profession. In addition to videos, there’s an FAQ section that provides more information about the overall benefits of physical therapy as well a search tool to help patients find an experienced physical therapist in their area.
“We developed this app as a useful resource for both consumers and those in the PT field,” says Desirea D. Caucci, PT, DPT, staff physical therapist and co-owner of Conshohocken Physical Therapy. “Motion Doctor is intended to help people prevent pain and the incidence of injuries. It also promotes the benefits of working with a licensed physical therapist and the long-term health improvements that can result.”
“The Motion Doctor app stands out from traditional medical field apps which can be text-heavy and lacking in design,” said Gregg Weiss, CEO and founder of Blue Whale Web Solutions, a five-year-old interactive firm with offices in West Palm Beach and New York City. “This app appeals to people seeking quality physical therapy information through its professionally shot videos and a crisp user-friendly interface. It is a great example of the power of smart design, which presents very useful information in a pleasing and simple to use package.”
Motion Doctor app is available on Apple’s App Store for a US$14.99.
