The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), Alexandria, Va, has endorsed My Therapy Exercise™, a physical therapy custom exercise video program available in the iTunes App store for the iPhone/iTouch/iPad and as a software download for Mac/PC from www.mytherapyexercise.com.
Developed by Robert E. Adams, PT, it is a comprehensive video home exercise program featuring 170 videos of stretches, range of motion, and strengthening for each body part. The videos may be watched individually or linked to create a customizable physical therapy routine.
My Therapy Exercise encourages users to work with their physical therapist or other health care professional to determine exercises that are appropriate for their individual therapeutic needs.
The program also contains an exercise prescription list that can be e-mailed directly from the My Therapy Exercise app, or printed out from the Web site for consultations with a PT or physician. Every clip has audio voiceover instruction with professional instruction on proper set-up, alignment, and necessary precautions.
