About FLX

Empowering individuals to manage and prevent MSD pain

Arco is partnering with FLX Health to offer a world-first physiotherapy app that helps to manage and prevent musculoskeletal problems without referral to a healthcare professional.

Many musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) can be avoided, or their symptoms reduced, with simple exercises. The FLX app empowers individuals to manage pain and take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.

As well as being painful and disabling for the individual, MSDs can also have significant financial business implications.

Keep Your Business Active with Healthy, Happy Employees

Combining decades of physiotherapy experience and biomechanical expertise, the FLX app provides personalised exercise programmes to address the impacts of modern living. It's an excellent solution if you're an employer looking for a way to reduce sick days and boost productivity and keep your people in work, healthy, happy and active.


Empowering. Easy to Use. Your Employees will Thank You.

Developed by Experts

The FLX app is built on a wealth of data on how the body works...

Chartered Physiotherapist and Biomechanics expert Martin Haines and his team measured the biomechanical function of over 4,000 people with a range of abilities (from elite athletes to more sedentary individuals) to understand how the body works. They mapped biomechanical profiles from their physical dysfunctions and past injuries. This helped the team understand key causes of pain and the most effective rehabilitation plan for each complaint. The app draws on this data to recommend treatment plans for your employees.

"I'm driven by making physiotherapy treatments more effective and efficient. Forty years ago, too many patients were experiencing the same recurring issues. It was clear treatment wasn't working so we started investing in research to find out how the body works and why it moves the way it does. This has helped us to understand the root cause of many pain problems and create more effective treatment plans to aid recovery and prevent future problems."
