Since the start of the pandemic, there has been an increase in home workout apps as more and more people choose to forgo the expensive gym membership to continue working out at home even when they reopen. But, for those with a history of injuries, training at home can put you at risk of re-injury.

Student at the University of Illinois, Joseph Rejive saw how injuries can happen without proper form or guidance, which is why he helped create EZPT, an app to help people train safely from home. The platform that has won NFL and Magic Johnson awards provides a personalized plan powered by AI coaching that assesses technique, offers tips for improving form, and tracks biomechanical progress.

The EZPT app is an AI-powered personal trainer that recommends users biospecific exercises to reduce pain and improve mobility. First, we test users’ mobility through an assessment to test their baseline range of motion, designed by movement health experts from Stanford Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh PT School (# 1 in the world). We are able to collect self-reported data on where a user feels pain and collect mobility data with computer vision to give exercise and routine recommendations. During exercise, we use computer vision to provide real-time audio feedback to help prevent injury. Based on their continued improvements in range of motion, our model continues to recommend new programs to continue progression safely. The best part is that it can all be done through your smartphone, so wherever you are, you have access to tools that can help you train safely and worry-free.

People often think of fitness and physiotherapy as two separate areas of movement health. In reality, movement health is a spectrum that ranges from people learning to walk to Olympic-level athletes. EZPT aims to provide routines that blend pre-rehab and rehab into daily exercise.
Many people fear training after sustaining an injury – and rightly so. Often people don’t know where their pain is coming from, what caused it, and how to fix it. EZPT takes all that guesswork out by analyzing your biomechanics and giving specific recommendations that are best for your movement health. This lets you focus on exercising without worrying about re-injuring yourself.
The app is also available on the App Store and Google Play Store, so anyone with a smartphone can access it.

Not only do we work to prevent new injuries, but we also serve to increase accessibility to world-class fitness trainers. Our AI-powered technology analyzes your movements and detects deficient muscle groups. By combining this information with any pain you feel on your body, we can recommend exercises and routines best suited to your needs. Additionally, we connect users with trainers around the world. Trainers can post different routines on our platform and users can select which ones to follow, depending on their needs. This allows users to work with coaches who can guide them through any injuries they face – all through your phone!
