[prMac.com] Newton, Massachusetts - Cognatus Innovations, LLC is proud to announce the release of "PT and OT Helper," which includes a series of four mobile device applications that will revolutionize the way that physical and occupational therapists treat patients with a variety of hand, ankle, and arm injuries.
Downloadable to Android and Apple iPad devices, the apps will soon be available to all iPhone users as well. PT and OT Helper consist of four individual applications each that were created to assist in the physical therapy and occupational therapy rehabilitation process. Therapists often give their patients exercise assignments to perform at home as part of rehabilitation of the injury and to continue strengthening the weakened muscles. While these routines can be confusing to follow and difficult to replicate, PT and OT Helper eliminates these frustrations. This coordinated and simplified approach decreases the amount of recovery time and increases the likelihood of rehabilitation success.
Each of the four apps offers these features:
* The ability for therapists to create customized exercise plans
* Animated graphics showing each exercise in detail
* Audio and written instructions
* Complete control over the difficulty and speed levels for each exercise
* Graphical tracking and sharing of performance data with therapist via email
The exercises in all four apps have been created under the expert supervision of professionals in the field and with the purpose of building strength and mobility. They include detailed animation and descriptions for numerous exercises that are commonly used to cure or improve the targeted injury. To avoid injury all users should work with a therapist before performing these exercises. Several additional apps are in development for a variety of protocols. The initial PT and OT Helper releases target these four conditions:
* Golf Elbow
* Finger and Hand
* Tennis Elbow
Each PT and OT Helper app is Patent Pending, and available for $4.99 in the US. Please visit PT and OT Helper online for further information, view the 5 minute Tutorial, or to download PT and OT Helper apps.
