Physitrack is a modern web- and app-based platform that works entirely in "the cloud". To use Physitrack, you must have access to at least a reasonably good internet connection, especially if you want to use Telehealth - our secure solution for video calls.
Physitrack Telehealth works in a wide range of browsers as well as on many iOS or Android devices. For a successful video consultation, you will need a working camera and microphone.
Tip: Test your system for Physitrack Telehealth before your first video consultation.
Your Physitrack account may contain sensitive information. It is therefore necessary to use reasonably modern hardware and browsers that support modern encryption standards.
Browser requirements for Physitrack (web) and PhysiApp (web)
All modern web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera)
Microsoft Internet Explorer is no longer supported
Internet Explorer is an outdated browser and Physitrack will not work correctly on this browser. Microsoft also no longer supports this browser. As a result, no more updates or patches are released, making the browser a potential security risk to your patient data.
Are you still using Microsoft Internet Explorer? Then download a new browser now. In particular, we highly recommend Google Chrome.

- SD resolution is circa 350 kbps per stream
