Exer Labs, an AI-powered digital health company, launches two new apps, Gait and Physio.
Combined with previously launched apps Studio and Range of Motion, Exer now serves the needs of a diverse customer base as they upgrade their abilities to service the entire lifecycle of patients’ needs remotely and in-person.
Exer’s suite of applications is powered by a custom, next-generation AI that runs on any device with a 2D camera (phone, tablet, laptops, etc). The software identifies specific biomarkers on the human body which provides health professionals and their patients with real-time data and summary metrics during exercises and functional movements.
An intuitive user interface promotes engagement, adherence, and better long-term outcomes. Users simply open the app on their device, point the camera at the subject, and Exer’s AI does the rest, a media release from Exer explains.
Exer Gait is a rapid assessment app for gathering accurate gait metrics that helps qualified health professionals identify at-risk individuals and assess progress over time. Gait was initially conceived to address a growing health crisis in senior housing facilities around the world for which the pandemic has made assessments challenging but increasingly important to keeping residents healthy. The applications extend into workplace assessments, prosthetics, and professional athletics.
“Our Gait app is analysis made easy,” said Exer Founder and CEO Zaw Thet. “Whether you serve aging communities or professional athletes, we can help you generate usable, actionable gait data quickly and cost-effectively.”
Exer Physio is a digital physical therapy app that helps health professionals deliver high-quality care both inside the clinic and remotely – dramatically extending their connection with patients.
“Physio has been in development for two years and addresses a broader set of exercises and movements than anything else we’ve released.” Thet adds. “By helping PT’s and physicians guide their patients through rehab in a more data-driven way and increasing the success of the rehab programs they offer, Physio fundamentally transforms the at-home physical therapy experience while making clinical visits more effective.”
Following in-clinic visits, PTs typically prescribe a series of relevant exercises or movements for patients to do at home between visits, and these home exercise protocols (HEPs) are the backbone of recovery plans. Physio provides therapists with a direct, data-driven connection to patients throughout the period of care by delivering verifiable metrics on these at-home exercises. For patients, the app is assessing and correcting exercise form in real-time and automatically counting reps, giving them confidence that they are doing their recovery protocol correctly.
Inside Physio is an extensive library of more than 200 exercises from which a PT or physician can build their prescribed protocols. This motion library will eventually be opened up to customers, allowing them to add exercises or modifications that fit their needs, the release continues.
