PROS CONS 

✔ Developed by a very knowledgeable physical therapist that specialises in pelvic pain.

✔ Library of 57 strengthening and stretching exercises (10 pelvic floor/abdominal relaxation, 16 stretches, 7 static stretches, 6 pelvic floor strengthening, 9 pelvic floor/core strength, 4 pelvic floor strength with facilitation, and 5 self-help techniques)

✔ Add exercises and selected associated reps and sets to the favourite section for easy reference.

✔ Symptom and bladder/bowel tracker with graphing

✔ Set reminders

✘ Images/videos wouldn’t load, and descriptions often directly reference the images making the app much less useful in its current state.

✘ This app would also be much less useful without the direct involvement from a physiotherapist. It provides an indiscriminate list of exercises with no guidance on which might be best for the user’s specific problems.

✘ Last updated 3 years ago (other than copyright changes 1 year ago)

 ✘ Costs $6.99.
