The patient can choose the duration and intensity of each exercise session themselves.
4. Overview of the Program
The Program, developed by Vitala, is based on evidence-based research on physical activity for various diagnoses, as well as extensive experience in exercise for medical conditions. The Program also incorporates knowledge of movement patterns and movement analysis. The exercise program is tailored to the patient's conditions as specified by the healthcare provider in the web interface. These conditions include the patient's medical diagnoses, musculoskeletal pain, and functional abilities.
