Municipalities and regions are under pressure to become more efficient and they are forced to economize the health care budget. Rehabilitation is a heavy budget entry and there is a need for ideas and solutions that are cost effective. Performing home exercises is a necessary and essential parameter in rehabilitation courses if the participant has to improve. Research and studies address the lack of compliance and adherence to home exercise programs, and the major inhibitors include: Uncertainty about exercises, absent visible effect and progress, and lack of meaningful training context. These factors inhibit motivation, which in turn lead to low priority and “forgetfulness”. Learn more ›

The stated mission is that the content of the BandCizer software is scientifically documented and based on evidence. The first version App is developed in collaboration with physiotherapists and endusers in Odense municipality. This is done by a public-private-innovation project funded by Syddansk Vækstforum and Den Europæiske Fond for Regionaludvikling. The App contains e.g. elastic band exercises and visualization of the outcome and results of the exercise. Therapists and executives are offered the possibility of monitoring the exercises performed by the patients or employees. Learn more ›
