[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Fountainhead International, LLC today is pleased to introduce StretchPro 1.0, its new app for video-guided stretching throughout the day for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Wherever they are, users are reminded to perform simple stretches to help reduce muscle strain, fatigue, stress, and injury. Soothing videos demonstrate the correct way to exercise the eyes, neck, shoulders, chest, back, wrists, fingers, and legs. Users may select any one of 20 videos, focus on one area of the body, view them all from head to toe, or play in shuffle mode.
Fountainhead is in the business of high quality ergonomic solutions for the office, and their app exemplifies the beauty of form and function they espouse. The studio produced videos are all of the highest technical quality, shot with a ruddy female model against an elegant white background. Instructions are given by a female in voiceover while the model, seated in an office chair, demonstrates. Where appropriate, both front and side views are seen simultaneously, enhancing the user's ability to comply with all instructions for proper execution. All instructions are also provided in text form. The app was developed by Appiction.
Taking note that many spend a good part of their day seated, Fountainhead emphasizes the absolute necessity of stretching at regular intervals. Incorporating these breaks has the effect of promoting mental clarity, effectiveness, and positive mood. StretchPro provides the perfect means for staying healthy, easily. In addition to stretches, the app also includes eye and breathing exercises, and health tips.

As StretchPro launches an animated corporate logo is followed by the tag "style meets ergonomics." The GUI consists of a stylishly rendered graphic of a woman, and touching any area produces animated waves emanating from that point. From there the user is invited to view one of the videos related to that part of the body. With the upcoming release of iPhone OS 4 the app will support scheduled push reminders to take a break and stretch.
"People are unaware of the pain and stiffness that builds up in their bodies because they're focusing on other things," commented CEO Michele Periquet. "With regular stretching using StretchPro, the person becomes more relaxed, happier, and better able to tackle any task."
