EXi - Exercise Prescription

Developed by physiotherapists, EXi uses an automated algorithm to analyse your health and current fitness level, and prescribes a personalised and graduated physical activity plan to help everyone to get active regardless of age, fitness level or disease status. It can also specifically target 20 different chronic diseases (or multiple co-morbidities, see below) with a tailored exercise program, and will track personalised health metrics so that the user can see the effect that their physical activity programme is having on their health.

You can choose how to complete your exercise program, with GPS tracked walking, running and cycling, home aerobics videos, gym programs and many others. If your health allows, you can exercise at low to moderate intensity or at high intensity. You can complete your exercise in one session, or multiple sessions throughout the day – whatever works best for you!

INSTRUCTIONS

Download the app for free. We will then give a brief medical screen to ensure that exercise is safe (it will be for most people).

We will then ask for some health and fitness information from you, including if you have any of 20 chronic health conditions. The purpose of this is to build the most appropriate exercise program for your needs

You will be in the main body of the app and your prescription will be displayed. This will gradually increase over 12 weeks as you get fitter. Each week, we prescribe how many sessions you should do, how long each session should be and at what intensity. You can also complete a set number of steps. Scroll across to see how you can complete your prescription.

To start an exercise, click “Record Activity” and you can choose to track an activity as you do it or log an exercise you have already completed. After completing the exercise, you will be asked to rate how hard it was and take your heart rate to give you guidance if you were exercising at the correct intensity.

Each week you can record health metrics that are relevant to you and every 6 weeks you can complete a 6-minute walk test to show your improvement!
