My 25+ years of experience in pediatric physical therapy practice is yours! This app features animated photos and how to tips to strengthen children s abdominals. With 62 ab exercises, this app is a life saver for PTs, physical therapy assistants, instructors, caregivers and parents. This Abdominals application is simply the first muscle group that we targeted, with 18 more muscle groups upcoming in the future. New physical therapists will love ideas to assist in treatment session preparation, planning, and programming. More experienced physical therapists will have at their finger tips a wide range of ideas for treatment of abdominals to add more variety in their treatment sessions. These are all exercises I know well, but even I get stuck in a rut performing the same exercises over and over. I will use this app as well to remind me of exercise options. This application has 10 free abdominal strengthening exercises. Over 50 more exercises are unlockable with an in-app purchase or by interacting with advertisements. I am committed to making this information available to anyone regardless of income.

This application targets abdominals which are critical for speech and occupational therapy as well. Speech and Occupational therapists alike will find ideas for strengthening to help maximize progress toward goals with their clientele. Educators will finally have a tool with detailed pictures and commentary to give their students a foundation for pediatric treatment. In the past so much has been available for evaluation, but frustratingly little for treatment! Physical therapists in third world countries can now have available exercise recommendations without the expense of distant training courses. I believe this app will change the quality of physical therapy across the world.
This application was developed by a pediatric physical therapist. Nothing can replace the skills of a pediatric physical therapist who can train caregivers and parents to perform these exercises safely and appropriately with a child with his or her own individual strengths, weaknesses and motivation. This application was meant to assist therapists, not negate the need for them.
In order to facilitate easy home programming, favorite exercises can be starred with treatment programming specified. This feature will enable the clinician to add frequency, repetitions, number of sets, duration, weight resistance and notes to home programs with parents who have downloaded the app. I provide commentary with each exercise explaining, for example, tips on how to make the exercise more successful, how to make the exercise easier or more challenging, and the type of client with whom I often use the specified exercise. Why wait for 25 years of clinical experience, when you can have my suggestions now?
