Through the Go Get Fit app, which gamifies physical activity, healthcare professionals provide fitness guidance to patients, track their progress, and support them in making fitness a part of their lifestyle. The app connects healthcare providers with community-based exercise specialists. This connection supports patients in their everyday life where transformation takes place. Endurance Unlimited first engaged with TEC Edmonton in late 2016, when TEC provided market strategy insight which in part, led to partner connections. In 2017, TEC Edmonton facilitated:
- Endurance Unlimited’s attendance and participation in the Accelerating Primary CarE (AICE) Conference.
- An application to the Alberta Innovates Accelerating Innovations into CarE (AICE) program – a collaboration between Healthy Heart Institute (Central Alberta Cardiovascular Sciences Department) and Endurance Unlimited.
Additionally, in March 2018, the Go Get Fit app was a finalist in Edmonton’s Smart Cities HealthHack competition.
