New Online Service Uses Video Instruction to Simplify Physical Therapy Exercises
Date:10/9/2009

re professionals rely on a patient's compliance with their regularly scheduled appointments, and with the adherence to the exercises and recommendations that they make. For an efficient recovery from injury or disability, the safe and correct completion of these exercises and adherence to these recommendations is of the utmost importance. Because of the importance of these communications, Van Dyke created FIZIO in an effort to provide patients and health care professionals with the tools they need to ensure that these important communications are better understood and more efficient.

As a service designed by a physical therapist, FIZIO is using today's technological advances in video creation, storage and transfer to change the way in which health care professionals prescribe exercise and communicate with their patients. Based on the improved compliance he saw with his own patients' home exercise programs, Van Dyke decided to make his videos available to other health professionals. He created FIZIO (www.fizio.com), a web site featuring more than 500 different physical therapy exercise videos. A physical therapist decides which exercises to prescribe and a unique page is created on the web site for each patient. The patient is sent an email with a direct link to their exercise program and is also issued a password to his or her private site enabling access 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"Being able to watch the videos over and over again has helped me to make sure that I am doing the exercises right," says Chad Wyllie, a physical therapy patient and Marine based on Camp Pendleton. "It was great to be able to access my exercise program wherever and whenever I needed it."

Health care professionals can choose from the large inventory of pre-recorded exercises or, if they wish, upload their own exercise videos for their patients' use. &
