Theryon, the first and only app that allows people to book physical therapy appointments on demand has launched, announced the app’s founders.
The convenient app allows people to book an appointment with a top-quality therapist for an in-home or in-office visit in as little as three hours. A flat-rate fee covers the therapy itself, as well as travel costs for the therapist, and payment is done securely through the app so that no money exchanges hands.
One in two American adults is affected by a musculoskeletal condition each year. Yet, people are busier than ever, and many professionals and stay-at-home parents don’t have the time to commute to their therapy appointments. Theryon provides the ease and convenience of having a therapist come to the patient, wherever they are, relieving stress and saving valuable time.
“Theryon offers people the ultimate user-friendly way to directly access top physical therapists, the ability to be seen wherever is most convenient for them, and an overall great therapy experience,” said Yitzchok Kolodny, DPT, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer.
Along with co-founders Zvi Gutman and David Kupfer, Kolodny, a doctor of physical therapy, was inspired to create the app by the patients he saw.
“So many patients would complain that while they need physical therapy, there was simply not enough time for them to travel to and from a clinic during working hours,” Kolodny explained. “People have full and engaged lives, and, sometimes, pain and dysfunction have to take a back seat to family and work obligations. Theryon was created with them in mind.”
The app not only provides on-demand physical therapy for patients, but allows physical therapists to reach an expanded network of potential clients, enter patient notes through the app in a matter of minutes, and receive payment within two days.
While Theryon operates out-of-network for insurance carriers, the company provides patients with an itemization of the services provided so that it may be submitted to a patient’s insurance carrier for reimbursement if out-of-network benefits are included.
Currently, the app operates in Manhattan, but will expand services to all of New York City and the surrounding areas soon.
