What is a UMedGym?
A UMedGym is a medical fitness facility that employs a team of certified professionals to provide and support a patient centered approach to health and well-being. Our model allows us to adapt to your needs and integrate solutions in ways that best fit your goals.
The UMedGym staff prescribe functional exercise programs and track member healthcare outcomes through our proprietary data collection process. Regardless of age or health condition, our facilities can help anyone exercise smarter and get healthier.
What makes a UMedGym different?
Quite simply, the staff. All clinicians employed at a UMedGym are required to have a minimum of a 4 year degree in a health related field in addition to professional certifications and licenses.
Each professional is also required to complete our proprietary certification process before providing services to any member. To maintain these certifications they must satisfy our continuing education credits through approved courses within our system.
There is growing evidence correlating the link between joint pain and heart disease. In fact, a study conducted by the University of New England found that over 90% of patients reporting to outpatient PT had at least one risk factor and over 65% were classified as moderate risk for CVD.
Medical fitness is one of the fastest growing industries in healthcare and has the greatest potential to impact chronic disease management. Addressing complex health conditions through exercise requires much more than just a gym. It requires a culture and a team dedicated to evidence based practices and ongoing collaboration with the healthcare system.
We are here to support that process and make medical fitness integration easy and effective.
