Add your own exercises and educational content

One of Physitrack's strengths is the unparalleled variety and quality of exercises and educational content in the library. With more than 15,000 exercises (most of them with videos in HD quality) and more than 100 pieces of educational content, you have at your disposal a huge collection of material for creating exercise programmes. Nevertheless, there may be situations in which you want to add your own exercises or educational content to your library. With Physitrack, this is possible and you do it in just a few simple steps.

Add your own exercises

Log in to your Physitrack account.
Go to Library > Exercises.
Click on the + Add new button in the right top corner of the page.
Choose whether you want to add a video or an image / photo.
Note: An exercise should always include either a video or a still image (photo).
  • The maximum file size for a video is 250 MB. It depends on the quality of the video how long it can be. You can find a handy calculator on
    Accepted formats: mp4, wmv, avi, mov, mpg, flv, f4v, m4v, asf, wmv, vob, mod, 3gp, mkv, xvid and webm.
  • The maximum file size for a still image or photo is 20 MB. For best results, use an image 1,920 pixels wide x 1,080 pixels tall. If your image is larger, it will be resized automatically. The image must be at least 500 x 500 pixels in size.
    Accepted formats: png, jpg, bmp.
Click the Select file & upload button and select the file on your computer.
Your video (or image) is now being prepared so that it can be used on Physitrack. While you wait for this, you can already set the parameters of the exercise:
  • Physitrack allows you to add exercises where you have filmed (photographed) your patient. By selecting the option "A patient is featured in this exercise" (1), you prevent this exercise from being (accidentally) assigned to another patient. Also, this exercise will then not be shared with colleagues if you have content sharing turned on. Check this page for more information on this topic.
  • Enter the Exercise name (2). This will be the name used to display the exercise in your library. It is a required field. Over here you can also enter the instructions that will be displayed below the video (image) when the patient opens the exercise.
  • Click Select specialty... (3) to choose the specialty this exercise belongs to. This is a required field and will allow you to find the exercise easier by using the filters on the left side of the Physitrack library. Here you can also set a wide range of other parameters. This is not mandatory, but we recommend it.
  • Now click Save (4) to add the exercise to your library. Depending on the file format, it may take some time before the exercise becomes visible in your library.
  • Click Change video (5) if you want to use another video (image) file instead or Cancel (6) to abort this operation and return to the library.

    Tip: if you have educational material in a format other than PDF, you can convert it from your word processor or with an online tool (such as Be careful with personal information when doing this - Physitrack is not responsible for the privacy policies of these or other services.
