iPrescribe Exercise selected for OpenActive accelerator

iPrescribe Exercise selected for UKactive ActiveLab accelerator

We have built in exercise programmes and information for 20 of the most common long term diseases.  The effects of exercise on health are well known and there is a huge amount of published medical evidence to support this.  The app will also track your health and response to exercise, allowing you to send this information to your health professional. 

Independent Physician review by imedicalapps.com

​iPrescribe Exercise is a free, evidence-based app which analyses the user's health and produces a personalised 12 week physical activity programme that gradually helps you to increase your activity levels.  The app sets the exercise intensity and duration based on the information you provide.  This can play an important role in the management of several long term health conditions for which we can selectively target with the app.  It can also help those who are sedentary or at risk from developing long term health conditions to become more active, and reduce their disease risk.

Exercise safely and at your own pace

We are delighted to be part of the first ever cohort for ukactive's ActiveLab accelerator, which is a specialist accelerator for technology which promotes physical activity. Founding partners include AXA PPP and TechCity UK.

Increasing your activity levels will unlock a range of health benefits but it's important to realise that even a small increase can be beneficial.  You can carry out your daily exercise in multiple short sessions with rest in between if you would like.  Our timer function allows you to pause and restart your exercise when you are ready.  You can also choose to do whatever type of exercise you wish.
