About the App
ExerciseBuddy (EB) both inspires individuals to exercise and helps professionals and parents. Everything they need is at their fingertips.
Nine universities and thousands of parents and professionals have enthusiastically embraced EB because of its ease of use and effectiveness.
EB takes exercise, usually a source of frustration and failure, and turns it into a new source of success and confidence.
Similar increases in the intensity (Heart Rate & METs) of physical activity were measured when using ExerciseBuddy versus traditional, verbal teaching methods in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

A treatment package consisting of the Video Models and Start/Finish Schedules in the ExerciseBuddy app, in conjunction with a system of least prompts and reinforcement, taught participants to acquire physical activity skills at home and generalize the skills at local community fitness sites.
