Health Promotion Tech - Digital innovation in Exercise Prescription - iPrescribe Exercise
iPrescribe exercise is a free
fully automated, medically endorsed and evidence-based app which produces
a graduated personalised 12 week exercise prescription plan for the user based
on their current health and fitness, with no input required from a healthcare
app sets the exercise intensity and duration based on the information
provided by the user. This can play an important role in the management of
several long term health conditions for which we can selectively target with
the app (we have 20 of the most common non-communicable diseases e.g. heart
disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension etc, built-in to the app with a library
of information on each). It can also help those who are sedentary or at
risk from developing long term health conditions to become more active, and
reduce their disease risk.
