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 professional. The 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.
The app is available on the App Store, but we would like to develop the technology further to improve the algorithm (managing data, adding AI, improving the app's functionality, adding home based VR exercise programmes). We also feel adding it to wearable tech would allow us to become the world's first technology which prescribes the users activity based on their health, rather than just tracking steps.
We have just taken part in ukactive's ActiveLab, the world's first physical activity accelerator, and were selected as we showed exceptionally strong promise to disrupt the healthcare sector. We firmly believe we can change the nature of healthcare delivery and reduce reliance on drugs for people with chronic disease, with iPrescribe Exercise.
