CAN-RESTORE’s Review on Digital Fitness Tools for Transplant Patients

Patient partners have indicated their need to have more digital tools to support their physical activity and healthy lifestyle post-transplant. Many tools are being developed through research studies at transplant centres across Canada, however the Canadian Network for Rehabilitation and Exercise for Solid Organ Transplant Optimal Recovery (CAN-RESTORE) group wanted to know what is available right now in the app store. The group conducted a search of the app stores to see what digital tools are best for supporting transplant candidates and recipients to be physically active. Patient partners and clinicians from the CAN-RESTORE steering committee also provided input on the features of the apps that they found most beneficial and relevant. A summary of the apps recommended can be found below.
