Exercise is Medicine® Canada and Piezo Rx Steps Count Pedometer

As an initiative with StepsCount and Exercise is Medicine® Canada, The Physio Sports Care Centre is now promoting physical activity with the PiezoRXTM pedometer. Over the past 20 years, healthcare professionals have been facing a new type of epidemic—the alarming increase in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. This is in great part due to the prevalence of sedentary lifestyles in both home and work environments.

To combat this epidemic, we are now prescribing the PiezoRXTM pedometer. The PiezoRXTM is the most accurate pedometer on the market and the best way not only to track the duration of your activity, but also the intensity of your activity. The positive health benefits of 150 minutes/week of moderate to vigorous exercise (100+ steps/minute) is well documented. Follow the link www.stepscount.com to see just how beneficial 150 minutes a week at 100+ steps per minute can be.

The PiezoRxTM is a valuable tool that helps you set goals and motivate you to achieve those goals to increase the quality of your life and decrease the risk factors for conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. We are excited to be a part of this initiative that will help inspire our fellow Canadians to be healthier and more active.
