PT-Helper was developed from a patient perspective. Fred, an avid cyclist, crashed twice in one year and suffered injuries that required surgeries, lots of physical therapy, and LOTS of paper exercise handouts.
Fred must admit, he was forgetful, busy, and a bit disorganized when it came to remembering his exercises, times, sets and reps, and especially where he put all those paper exercise handouts! Needless to say, the traditional approach wasn’t working. There had to be a better way to implement Home Exercise Programs, for both the patient and the therapist.
Fred and Joan did some research and found out that the majority of PT businesses still rely on outdated, confusing, and easy-to-lose paper handouts. So, they partnered with Andrew Kwan, co-founder, principal illustrator, and artistic director of PT-Helper, to design their patient-focused app from the ground up.
