NHS-approved exercise prescription app EXi launches free Covid-rehab programme

By

EXi, an NHS-approved exercise app designed to help people with long term health conditions, has launched a Covid-19 rehabilitation programme.

EXi teamed up with renowned British Physician Sir Muir Gray to devise the programme, which comprises movement-focused sessions to support those recovering from the virus.

The EXi Covid-19 rehab pathway will restrict people to low/moderate intensity activity for the first 12 weeks. If they present a good health profile after this time, EXi will unlock higher intensity activity as an option.

The programme has been developed using the most up to date stats and data from health organisations to provide people with the tools they need to get better safely.

"For anyone who has had the disease, a carefully prescribed rehabilitation exercise programme will speed their recovery," Sir Muir said.

“It’s absolutely critical that people with chronic health conditions not only keep moving but increase the amount they move to help them build their resilience to Covid-19.”

Covid-19 has been proven to cause the most suffering to those with underlying health conditions, including diabetes, respiratory and heart conditions and obesity.

“Starting rehabilitation as soon as you are able can help to improve physical, psychological and emotional recovery,” says Carron Manning, CEO and co-founder of EXi.

“It also prevents a process called deconditioning, which is a loss of strength, fitness and functional capacity, which can lead to a loss of independence.

"Our programme guides users over a 12-week programme that is both personalised and safe.”

Developed in 2019, the EXi app provides automated and personalised exercise prescriptions for the management of chronic diseases.

It was recently selected by the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme to receive business mentoring to help drive its growth and development.
