Summary

Timer for parents who perform manual physical therapy (PT) on the chest of a child living with cystic fibrosis. Issues a reminder when a session of PT positions is due. Allows the various positions of the PT session to be specified, and a length of time set for the positions to be maintained (minutes per position). A customised sound to mark the end of each PT position can be added. Rest periods can be built in, to relieve fatigue. A 'good-job' screen appears at the end of a session of PT positions, to act as a reward for the participating child. The app is designed to be simple and uncomplicated.

Reviews

Reviewer: Cystic Fibrosis Newsletter 2013 [patient forum at Children’s Hospital of Michigan], USA
Review: “Chest PT (free): This is a timer app for manual chest physiotherapy (PT) that allows users to set total position, minutes per position, with alerts to let you know when to change positions. When all positions are completed, your child gets a “good-job” screen, which can be customised with your child’s name on it.”
