The mission to transform the lives of 125,000 rural Australians by 2025 will begin when the PHYZ X 2U team depart Orange this month. Mr Philip Donato, MP will join members of the allied health community to launch the clinic on its maiden journey around the wider Western region.
PHYZ X 2U is the brainchild of founders Justin Johnson and Angela Hubbard, both highly experienced allied health professionals with a passion for helping people.
“Living and practicing in regional NSW for more than 12 years has given us an insight to the requirements of the everyday Australian,” said Mr Johnson.
“Access to health services and professionals is limited or non-existent in some areas, and often leaves rural and remote communities challenged by chronic disease and conditions that could easily be treated if better access was made possible.”
PHYZ X 2U has evolved as the solution; a mobile clinic delivering the expertise of Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists to regional NSW, working alongside local health practitioners to individually assess patients, determine their goals and requirements to positively transform their life, and the wellbeing of the community.
Indeed, local residents in rural communities across the Central West have been active in requesting the PHYZ X 2U team visit their community, responding to the social media hashtag #bringus2u and requesting appointments via the PHYZ X 2U website.
“An individually tailored exercise program is created and delivered to the patient via mobile phone, tablet or PC as an app, and the exercise plan is then supervised remotely by our team through weekly communications with our health coaching team. We keep the patient accountable, to make sure they’re exercising effectively and safely,” Mr Johnson said.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with the response from the medical community and general public living in rural and remote Australia. Our team will travel on regular intervals through the year to provide specialised assessment and prescription of Exercise Programs across the region.”
“Our goal is to create a ‘physical activity movement’ that will transform the health and lives of rural and remote Australians forever.”
