Exercise programmes

Bespoke exercise programmes for care home residents have been launched by Royal Star & Garter using the physiotherapy app Physiotec.  After each resident has been individually assessed, the home’s physiotherapist then uses the app to create a tailored set of exercises for each one.  Gursh Lotay, physio at Royal Star & Garter’s home in Solihull, said: “Physiotec helps me to put together a set of exercises targeted at the individual.  It empowers residents because the onus is on them to do the exercises.  Their progress is in their own hands.”  More details of the app at www.physiotec.ca.
