Testimonials

Human impact

When I went to a clinic, the therapist just explained the exercise and I did it by myself. With Sword, there is constant feedback and the exercises are adapted to my needs. I am about to recover my shoulder mobility and strength!

Being able to do the sessions anytime with my PT support gave me better and faster results than conventional physical therapy. I am so grateful for my PT and to Sword!

Enjoy your favorite activities without MSK pain
I've done a lot of conventional PT, but I love doing it with Sword. The exercises challenge me, and I can feel the evolution. I've returned to work and still feel supported by my PT, who answers all my questions and continues to help me make progress.

Enjoy an active life with your kids
When I tell people that I complete physical therapy at home with a tablet, they say it should be done in a clinic! But then I tell them what I have access to is better—a physical therapist from my home who prescribes and modifies my exercises that I can do with my tablet. My PT knows what exercises are good and makes changes when necessary!
