Pocket Physio

Pocket Physio by Care UK is an easy to use mobile app for physiotherapy exercises involved in preparing for and recovering from orthopaedic surgery.

Why using the Pocket Physio app?

Pocket Physio features advice on walking with a frame or crutches, hip precautions, breathing exercises, managing pain and self-assessment, as well as recommended techniques for dressing, bathing and getting in and out of vehicles.

The app provides videos and text instructions on pre- and post-operative physio exercises, enabling you to establish a strong exercise regime before surgery that you can also continue afterwards, helping you to make a speedy recovery. You can even plan your own physio exercise regime using the reminder function.
