The evolution of a stickman
Tired of drawing stick men, taking videos on our clients’ smartphones, and scouring the internet for the exercises we were prescribing, a group of professionals decided there was a better way.
After pouring over many different websites and apps we decided that nothing fulfilled the need that we had and therefore we should do something about it. The only thing we thought we could do was to create our own database of exercises and a search method that we found easy to find these thousands of exercises we had stored in our relatively simple grey matter. Once we had this huge database of exercises we realised we needed an easy method of delivery to get these exercises to our clients in a fast and effective manner that they could understand, and out of this Rehab Guru was born.
Admittedly after starting out a few years ago with our little more than pubescent bodies in overly tight clothing we have reshot every exercise a few times, restructured our database more times than any of us want to remember and changed our delivery platform to roll with the times, but we won't stop there. With each of our teams individual level of OCD and inability to avoid getting sucked in by shiny new gadgets and technology we imagine we will reshoot them all many more times with whatever fancy camera and deliver them through whatever fancy platforms come out. We hope that all of this excess on our part though continues to drive what we can deliver to you and create a better user experience for you and your clients

Building the perfect experience
The list of possible exercises is endless and grows every day with the introduction of new equipment and techniques. We endeavour to offer our customers the exercises they need. We conduct our own research to keep ahead of the trends but we always welcome requests through our exercise request form.
In order to deliver the right result, our team of experts add additional information (called metadata) that allows our intelligent search algorithm to select the right exercises and deliver them in a blink of an eye (25ms to be precise). If you cannot find what you are looking for you can always create your own exercises.
We treat our network like an elite athlete an F1 car. We monitor everything to ensure things are in tip-top condition. To say we are obsessed about our service is an understatement. Think Team Sky plus McLaren...for software.
Most of our team is still involved in the exercise rehabilitation industry, so we work with Rehab Guru users every day. There is an ever increasing community that is driving Rehab Guru forwards. We look forward to welcoming you into our extended team to drive exercise prescription into the 21st century.
