DOVER, DELAWARE – 13 Sep, 2017 – Multiple research studies have demonstrated the importance of holistic care in improving physical function and quality of life in people with Parkinson’s, Stroke and Chronic Pain. However, logistical and financial barriers currently hinder people from receiving this important care.
In line with its vision to enhance the quality of life by leveraging neuroplasticity principles (the brain’s natural ability to change and adapt at any age) for debilitating conditions, 9zest has created a suite of Apps to provide ‘at home’ therapy through handheld devices. Now, for the first time, mobile users are empowered to receive affordable, expert-guided therapy anywhere, anytime.
All apps – 9zest Parkinson’s Therapy, 9zest Stroke Rehab and 9zest FixHealth, generate a personalized program that takes a holistic approach to manage the condition by combining Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Yoga, and Meditation. The apps use 9zestSmartTM artificial intelligence engine and proprietary algorithm to design customized therapy protocol to meet the specific needs and disability level of the user.
The apps feature assessment of the condition, ProgressMeterTM to measure the improvement, and prescribed therapy to help manage or reduce the symptoms of a specific condition. To keep users motivated and challenged, the therapy protocol is automatically updated based on progress made by the user.
9zest was founded by Manoj Agarwala, a successful serial entrepreneur and founder of 3 technology companies. He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s (PD) in 2013 at a young age of 43. He soon discovered that there is no remedy for the condition, however, workout and physical therapy can slow down the progression.
“Lifelong therapy was needed but insurance approved only 1 month of therapy. Self-pay can cost $2k to $3k per month. My PD progressed from UPDRS of 14 to 35 in the first two years. I started daily physical therapy in the third year and my UPDRS improved to 18”, explains Manoj Agarwala, Chief Executive Officer, 9zest, Inc.
Seeing this kind of dramatic improvement led him to start thinking that there are millions of people who need help with such kind of therapy and thus 9zest was born.
9zest apps promise to overcome many of the barriers faced by patients and their caregivers such as high rehabilitation cost and need to drive or arrange transportation to the Therapy Center. Each app is backed by unconditional money back guarantee. If the user does not experience any improvement in his/her condition or is not satisfied with the program for any reason, can claim the full refund by end of 12th week.
These apps are available on App Store and Google Play for download.
9zest’s mission is to enhance quality of life by leveraging neuroplasticity principles through physical therapy, occupational therapy, yoga, speech therapy and meditation for debilitating conditions such as Parkinson’s, Stroke and Chronic Pain.
