Sensor Technology
Our sensors are used on all joints to ensure precise data capture and real-time feedback to keep members adherent. Feedback allows PTs to tailor the program based on the member's progress after each session. Without sensors, programs couldn’t be updated with real data. This is what true customization looks like.

We use technology and data so that our PTs can enhance each member's program after every session. No automated playlists, blanket programs, or unqualified health coaches. Just real PTs, real people, real progress.
