Help your patients stay active and heart-healthy for American Heart Month with these top 5 cardio apps.
It is well known that exercise is a great way to prevent cardiovascular disease, but nearly 30% of Americans are physically inactive and only 1 in 3 adults meet the recommended amount of weekly physical activity. While physicians can educate their patients on the benefits of regular exericise, they cannot monitor their progress or give them guidance 24-7. That is where mobile apps come in handy with personalized workout routines, daily reminders, progress tracking, and social media capabilities that allow patients to connect with family and friends for encouragement or friendly competition. In honor of February being American Heart Month, Patient Care Online sifted through the droves of fitness apps on the market to select 5 cardio apps that primary care physicians can recommend to patients.
