With a desire to promote physical therapy, health and wellness to all people, Desirea was the driving force behind the creation of an injury prevention iPad application called “Motion Doctor”. The iPad application was designed for consumers who are currently healthy and not experiencing physical pain. The Motion Doctor can also be used by Physical Therapists to show patients how to do exercises at home with a visual reference.
