Rehab Prescription App looking for AT input

RehabRx is a new Winnipeg startup launching a software program to help therapists to assign rehabilitation routines to their clients.

On the therapist side, the program saves the therapist time by delivering a workout routine in seconds. The routine can then be edited even faster with updates following the client’s progress. Therapists and assistants can add a new routine for the client and use assign existing routines for common injuries to new clients.

On the client side, the program is focused around helping clients to complete their prescribed exercise at home. It does this by building a complete video workout clients can follow (not just links to explanation videos), automatically reminding clients to complete their workout, point and badge rewards, and the ability to contact the practice through the app for any questions and to book an appointment. The application can be used on any device and would be free for the client to use.

We are looking for Athletic Therapists to give us feedback on the app. Your help is essential to help us create an app tailored to the needs of the profession. This is feedback that can only come from your insight and experience helping clients. We realize this will take a small amount of your time and that your time is valuable. Anyone that gives us feedback on the app will receive free lifetime access for your business and clients. Can we count on you to help us?
