Strengthening recovery with the Cancer Exercise app
The Cancer Exercise app is the first mobile exercise app for iOS designed specifically for cancer survivors. The app brings customized exercises to cancer survivors to improve their quality of life.
Research shows the enormous benefits of exercise for people living with and beyond cancer. Our client, Anna L. Schwartz, PhD, FNP-BC, FAAN, world-renowned cancer and exercise oncology pioneer, partnered with InspiringApps to create an app to help bring custom exercise programs to cancer patients and survivors.
Adaptive & Easy To Use
To get started, you’ll provide a brief history, rate your fatigue, and complete two quick tests. Then you’re ready to begin your individualized exercise program. The app dynamically adapts to your current physical state as you go. You can track your progress on a daily dashboard that provides check-ins, encouragement, and recommendations. Rate your fatigue to adjust exercises in length and intensity so that exercise is tailored to you. Get focus and guidance to gain strength and agility.
This exercise program helps people make a positive change in their life. The step-by-step program guides participants to become more active, leading to less fatigue, more energy, and improved physical and emotional health. The app was nominated for a Best Mobile App Platinum Award in 2020 and won an AVA Digital Gold Award in 2021.
“Anna’s research-driven program provides the backbone of each workout while factors like energy levels, time since last workout, time since last treatment, and ongoing fitness testing provide the user with the best chance at regaining their strength during and after the trying times of cancer recovery.” —Will Helling, InspiringApps Lead iOS Developer
