About EXI

Exercise. It’s a powerful thing. It can improve our physical and psychological health. It can manage, treat, and even prevent certain conditions. For many, it’s a life-changer. For years, research has shown the benefits of physical activity, but we’ve never had the tools to release its full potential. Most healthcare professionals have been able to give recommendations, but not personalized prescriptions. Provide advice, but not monitor real-time adherence. There has never been a seamless way to use exercise as a targeted treatment for all. 

Until now. 

We make prescribing exercise accessible, combining decades of scientific knowledge with pioneering technology to create the future of AI-powered healthcare. Our intelligent platform allows healthcare professionals to prescribe tailored programs in a way that’s easy, effective, and scalable. By uniting science with sophisticated motivational systems, we can achieve lasting behavioral change for all, including the people who need it the most. 

This isn’t just exercise. This is EXI: Exercise Intelligence. 

Why EXI's Data Platform?

EXI is transforming care delivery through a science-backed and personalized physical activity program. EXI enables health professionals to efficiently prescribe an intensity-based program, tailored using medical guidelines for 23 long-term health conditions. 

EXI also enables health and fitness professionals to extend training and program personalization safely (based on the intensity prescription) to a wider audience with multiple long-term health conditions. Facilitating accurate and streamlined information sharing between health and fitness professionals is now easier and seamless with the use of EXI’s data portal.

Prescription adherence is monitored in real time using data from the consumer facing app and connected wearable device. This allows for a targeted treatment for sedentary people who are living with, or at risk of developing chronic health conditions.

Why Deploy EXI?

Research shows even the smallest amount of physical activity can make a huge difference to our health. 

EXI will help support certified professionals and patients/clients on their physical activity journeys. The award-winning platform, comprised of a health professional facing portal and consumer facing app, is also a certified medical device that personalizes a physical activity program for clients / patients, based on current health status. The prescription will be set at the appropriate level and graduated over 12 weeks. It is personalized for multiple co-morbidities. 

Weekly goals can start as low as 3 sessions of 10 minutes of low intensity activities per week. Clients/Patients have access to the EXI library of workout videos curated to the appropriate intensity level, or they can log any activity on the app.  EXI gathers health and fitness information from most wearable devices with consent provided in the iOS Health app and the Android Google Fit app. 

We empower clients/patients to understand their heart rate zones and to be physically active at the right intensity for them.
