    PhysioTherapy eXercises is a publicly available website, created by Harvey, Messenger, Glinsky, Pattie and a collaboration of physiotherapists. It was designed as a resource for creating and distributing home exercise programs. The website has a database of images, videos and instructions for over 1000 exercises focusing on impairments (strength, balance, range of motion, and cardiovascular fitness), and activities (reaching and manipulation, sit to stand, transfers, and mobility), and is available in 13 different languages. The exercises are evidence-based and include exercises for children through to the elderly, as well as exercises targeting specific populations, such as acute and degenerative neurological conditions, and musculoskeletal conditions, including whiplash and hand injuries. The Physiotherapy Exercises App is one feature of this web-based software and is the focus of this review.
