WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA – Apple’s recent release of its new iOS 5 operating system for the iPad means better functionality of Prognition Corporation’s Mavenlive exercise prescription software.
The update to the iOS- which was released on Oct. 12- has solved one of the major limiting factors when using the iPad, says Dr. Jay Winburn, president of Prognition Corp., which introduced Mavenlive physical therapy assessment software in March 2009.
We use a “rich text editor,” which is basically something that looks like Microsoft Word but renders in the Web browser so you can do things such as format your text- which means making your fonts bold or italicized, changing font sizes and making alignment adjustments, to name a few examples, says Chris Metcalfe, Mavenlive’s vice president of technical developments.
This rich text editor never used to render on the iPad, which prevented our users from being able to complete their correspondence letters on the iPad, Metcalfe says. They needed a traditional computer or laptop in order to get these letters produced. Now that this new operating system allows the editor to render, they can use the iPad for all their needs. It is now the ideal device to use when using Mavenlive, which also integrates with any physical therapy coding and billing system.
“This is great news for physical therapists who use Mavenlive for prescribing physical therapy exercises and generating letters to referring doctors,” Metcalfe says. “We want to be sure all of our current users know this is able to be done, as many of them use the iPad but are frustrated that the editor doesn’t render.”
Mavenlive is a powerful, helpful tool when used on an iPad, and iOS 5 makes that an even truer statement now, Dr. Winburn says. This most recent upgrade will provide a richer user experience for physiotherapists.
