REPS app– This app consists of post-stroke exercise programs that are guided by videos.
The programs include:
TASK in which you practice everyday tasks; sitting, standing, stepping and standing up.
PUSH in which you can start to practice arm movements if your arm is very weak and difficult to move.
The programs were designed to improve and/or maintain strength and mobility, as well as encouraging people after stroke to be more physically active.
The programs within the app were developed by a team of physiotherapists at Macquarie University led by Dr Kate Scrivener. The aim of the app is to assist people after stroke to exercise at home, on an ongoing basis.
