|LPT Falls Prevention app||By Physitrack PLC|
The app does have an option of a user getting a personalised exercise programme, specific to those residents of Leicestershire. This wasn’t able to be viewed part of the app, but this seems to be linked to Physitrack, a well-established exercise prescription software in the physiotherapy community.

What does the app do?
This app is designed to reduce the risk of falls. It has specifically been designed by the Leicestershire Partnership to run alongside the in person supports as part of the falls prevention service. For those users in that region, the app links them in with a particular class and allows them to access a personalised exercise programme.
For those users out of Leicestershire, the app has a more limited use. Users will be able to access a video that provides high quality advice and exercises related to reducing the risk of falls.
✔ The video that is available through NZ has high-quality balance advice. Education is accurate, and the exercises have been well chosen, and would be consistent to what would be prescribed in New Zealand, seeing a physiotherapist who may have prescribed an Otago Falls Prevention type programme.
✘ The app is very limited for those users out of Leicestershire. Although there is some good information on here, it is likely that the falls prevention information could be found through other avenues, without having to download the app.
