iPrescribe Exercise is a free, fully automated, medically endorsed and evidence-based app which produces a personalised 12 week exercise prescription plan for the user based on a number of personal and health inputs and medical conditions. 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
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.
Manage and prevent chronic health conditions
Stay active throughout the day

The app will also track your health and response to exercise, allowing you to send this information to your health professional.
