Help your patients recover faster than ever
Get your patients doing their home exercises once and for all.
Patients who exercise between sessions are likely to recover faster, and less likely to re-injure themselves.
Home exercise programmes (HEPs) are an opportunity for patients to take control of their own recovery; motivating them and helping them to feel more involved in their treatment. The HEP therefore acts as an extension of the treatment you provide; helping patients to help themselves and maintain the improvements they've made while under your care. It is also a way of allowing continuity between visits, and can reduce the number of sessions required.
Each of your patients has unique needs, but there are some things you can do to help all of them improve their home exercise adherence.
Extensor, a start-up founded on a physiotherapist's table in Innsbruck and now headquartered in London, is developing a suite of apps to help physiotherapy patients get back to full health faster than ever.
Patients can track their progress in the free companion app. When it's time to complete an exercise, they can review the example video you made together and then record themselves completing the exercise.
Check that your patients are doing their exercises - and doing them right. You can review videos recorded by your patients and give feedback in your own time.

"It was incredibly frustrating that patients weren't getting the most from their home exercises, either because they were having problems with the exercise or they'd forgotten exactly what I'd assigned them. With Extensor I can attend these problems as soon as they arise. The feedback from my patients during testing has only been positive and it seems to be benefiting their therapy hugely."
