INTELLIGENT VERTICAL: HEALTHCARE thereby offering the skills of a personal trainer at your fingertips in the comfort of your home. The app currently focuses on perfecting squats but the patent- pending technology that underpins it is set to transform the world of fitness and physiotherapy by allowing personal trainers, sports scientists and physiotherapists to define an infinite number of correct exercises. Later this year, Kaia Health will integrate this technology into its various medical device apps including their ‘Kaia Back Pain Relief at Home’ app, a clinically-proven therapy app for nonspecific back pain and ‘Kaia COPD Therapy’ app which helps to relieve the symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The technology will help to treat patients, monitor trends in the progression of a disease or condition and personalise therapy – and this will create best-in-class digital multimodal therapy for patients. Widely considered a vital exercise for increasing the strength and size of the legs as well as developing core strength, the squat is a compound, full body exercise that primarily trains the thigh muscles, hips and buttocks, quadriceps femoris muscle and hamstrings – as well as strengthening the bones, ligaments and insertion of the tendons throughout the lower body. If you prefer training with others, the Perfect Squat Challenge online community will help to motivate you. The app encourages users to compete and challenge friends on social media by sharing a personalised link featuring the number of correct repetitions. This allows users to have their high score feature in a leaderboard during exercise for added motivation. Maximilian Strobel, Head of Kaia Health’s AI Lab, said: “Breakthroughs in AI-powered motion tracking and correction technology means that everyone now has access to a virtual personal trainer and physiotherapist on their iPhone – and can perfect exercises such as the squat. In the future, this technology will integrate within our medical device apps for diseases and conditions such as back pain, creating a scalable, cost-effective therapeutic tool. This democratises access to high-quality, bespoke fitness, rehabilitation and physiotherapy – and could reduce the burden on health services.” n NEW CLINICALL APP OFFERS ITS WELL-KNOWN SERVICES ON ANY MOBILE DEVICE users to install yet another separate app on their device for each new function.
