Thank you so much to Julia Manning and the team at 2020Health for their post about our shortlisting for the AXA PPP Health Tech & You, Professional's Choice Award! 

"TickerFit was founded by chartered physiotherapist Avril Copeland. Avril founded the company after becoming frustrated seeing the same patients readmitted to hospital due to a lack of follow on support.

TickerFit enables healthcare providers to deliver primary and secondary prevention interventions to patients remotely. Through a web based platform health professionals can customise a programme of exercise education reminders and patient reported outcomes.

The patient’s curriculum is delivered to them via the mobile application. The patient completes daily tasks to fulfil their personalised curriculum. In primary care GPs are using TickerFit to deliver physical activity interventions to patients at risk of cardiovascular disease. Two RCTs are underway. TickerFit is being piloted in cardiac rehabilitation. Patients who are unable to attend the traditional model of cardiac rehab are being prescribed TickerFit."

Judges Comments:

“A new way of rehabilitation for patients who cannot have the traditional type of cardiac rehab”

“Cloud based so easily accessible but safe for medical professionals to access”

“Easy monitoring of health condition and improvement through rehabilitation”
