Exercise prescription software
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (January 2013)|
Exercise prescription software is a branch of computer software designed to aid in the construction of exercise programmes or regimes for patients who require some kind of ongoing rehabilitation.
Exercise prescription is common in physiotherapy practices where traditionally patients would be given a printed handout with diagrams and instructions describing any rehabilitation exercises. As high speed internet becomes prevalent in the home, and paperless offices are more desirable, prescribed exercises are often e-mailed to patients instead of given on handouts and diagrams replaced by instructional videos.
