Some rough edges here, but the concept is really nice. The good: exercises walk you through what you need to do visually. builtin timer including reps, hold time, etc. Audio cues mean you don't have to stare at the screen. The not so good: visuals didn't show at first, not sure why. Reminders are klunky and only 3, I have 5/day, no go. It wasn't obvious that I could tweak timing, exercise was too fast, once I figured out that I could change it, wasn't sure which setting to change, confusing.

Used this a couple years ago after my TKR and it was great. Now it wants HEP codes, whatever they are. Oh well. Uninstalled.

The previous version of PT-Helper has been migrated to PT-Helper Pro which you should still be able to re-install and create exercise programs from our exercise library. The current free version of PT-Helper is for users whose physical therapist and health professional use have prescribed exercise programs (HEP) on our exercise prescription service

Two stars for great concept but app won't accept any of my hep codes so it's basically useless to me.

We believe that you have not approved the required permissions for PT-Helper to work properly. The easiest way to resolve this is to delete PT-Helper and then re-install it. When you open the app, it will ask you to approve permissions. Please press Yes. Then the HEP codes should work.
