Curv’s library consists of Activities, Routines and Programs.
You’ll see consistent categories within our Library, such as mental health, nutritional health, personal development, physical health, and sleep.
From the Libraries tab on the left side bar menu, tap one of Activities, Routines, or Programs, and select a category to browse our existing content. Tap to view the instructions and demo videos of activities, or to see what’s included in a routine or program. Use the search bar to find exactly what you’re looking for.
And even though there’s already a ton of content in our library, you have the option to add your own content and categories. This will all stay within your personal library, so feel free to make this your own.
To add your own Activities, Routines, and Programs to the Library, tap the “+” button in the top right corner on the respective tab.
Regardless of what you’re adding, the following fields are required:
Let’s take a look at the next steps for creating Activities, Routines, and Programs.
Activities are the smallest unit in our library, they are specific tasks that you assign to a client, such as a quad stretch or drinking water. Open the activity builder using the “+” sign in the top right corner of the activity tab.
Video (Optional) - Add a video to demonstrate how the exercise or activity should be performed. Record a video right from the app or select a pre-recorded video from your iPad photo library.
Camera and Person Orientation (Mandatory) - These fields reference how you would like this exercise to be filmed if you were to have the client submit this as a video Check-in. This may not always be relevant for a new Activity, but is still a required field. Feel free to select any option, as this will not be visible to your clients.
Routines are groupings of Activities that will be prescribed together. Open the Routine Builder using the “+” sign in the top right corner of the Routine tab.
Add or Create Activity - Add the Routine’s Activities by tapping on the green “+” sign. This brings up the option to either create or add an Activity. Tapping “create” will open the Activity Builder, where you can add a new Activity. If you would like to use content from the Library, simply find what you need through the search bar, or toggle to the category tab (found at the top of the screen) where you can browse Activities by category.
Add Metrics to your Activity - If relevant for the Activities in your Routine, add the reps, sets, hold time, or rest time.
Edit the routine - Delete Activities within the routine using the red minus (”-”) sign, or reorder the Activities by dragging them by the three lines on the right.
Programs bring together your Routines under one umbrella, and are what you eventually assign to a client. Open the Program Builder using the “+” sign in the top right corner of the Program tab.
Add or Create Routine - Add or create a Routine on a specific day in your Program by tapping on the green “+” sign. Selecting “Create” will open the Routine Builder where you can create a new Routine within the Program. Selecting “Add” will bring up the Routine Library for you to browse through. You can continue to add Routines to additional days within your Program until it’s finished.
Delete Routine - Tap the three dots beside the Routine to remove it from a specific day.
Check-In Routines - Tap the three dots beside the Routine to mark it as a Check-in. (See more on Check-in Routines below.)
Assign a Program - Once the Program is saved, it’s time to assign it to your client client. Tap “assign,” select the desired client from your list, and then select the date you’d like the Program to start.
Tap save when you’re finished creating the activity, routine or program. If you’re missing any required fields they will be highlighted in red.
When viewing any of your content in the library, tap edit to adjust any of the fields or information within the activity, routine or program.
When it comes to pre-existing Library content, you won’t have the option to edit, but you can duplicate it, and edit the copied version to make it your own. This duplicate function is also a great option for customizing content for a specific client. For example, if you’ve created a Low Back Pain program but want to add a few extra components for a specific client, simply duplicate that existing program and edit as you see fit.
Be mindful that editing existing Activities or Routines within a duplicated Program will edit those pieces of content in your Library. This function works best if you wish to add new Routines, or change the instructions for the Program.
A Check-in Routine allows you to check in on the activities within the routine and provide some feedback to the client as they will be prompted to record a video of these activities using their mobile device.
If the activities within this routine include human movement the metrics automatically outputted by Curv’s computer vision technology will include graphed angles of the body. If the activity has no human movement, for example a video of a client’s plate of food, there would be no automated metrics but you would still be able to leave feedback for the client.
Activities within the “Physical Health - Evaluation” category include special assessments that have been created by Curv and include specific metrics associated with that activity meant to evaluate performance. Examples of those metrics include range of motion, rep counts, hold time, jump height, etc.
