"Physical therapy is not a subspecialty of the medical profession and physical therapists are not medical doctors; we are a separate profession that provides a unique service that physicians are unable and untrained to provide."

Calorie Counting and Metabolic Feedback for Physical Therapists' Patients

The Aipermotion Active Body Control device:
Physical therapists can use Aipermon's new Active Body Control device to help their patients adhere to their diet using instant feedback of calories burned and calories taken in.

The device is part calorie calculator and part pedometer with an internet connection that sends your results to your doctor.

Poor Nancy has not had breakfast yet but she's a good trooper and she demonstrates the Aipermotion for me at the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) meeting in Tampa using her own metabolic data.

Thanks Nancy! Now, go get some breakfast!
