The website is set up with a framework similar to other popular social media platforms, such as Facebook.com, and can best be described as a “mini-Facebook-like” application that is aimed at offering a vehicle of communication among members within a specific niche. Physical therapy professionals will be able to set up a profile page on Physiowire.com and will then have access to communicate with others within the physical therapy-specific social network. Members will be able to post questions, answer other members’ questions, share information and experiences, and make connections with others in the field, no matter where they are located.
The PT Project was initially conceptualized by the management of NY SportsMed and Physical Therapy as an innovative approach aimed at making it easier for physical therapists around the globe to work together in order to further the profession of physical therapy as a whole through education. The PT Project was created as a repository of practical knowledge, research findings, medical and business advice, clinical information, news and experiences, intended to benefit all professionals within the field. The new social media site is yet another vehicle offering PT professionals an opportunity to communicate with and learn from one another.
“Our profession is ever-evolving, and being able to easily communicate with one another, share ideas, talk about the latest research or newest techniques, ask questions and have them answered, or simply get to know others within the field makes us all better at what we do and furthers our profession overall,” explains Adam Banks, organizer of The PT Project and Physiowire.com. “By providing a vehicle that makes it simple for physical therapists to increase their knowledge and improve their connections to others within the field, we all benefit – the physical therapists as well as the public.”
Access to Physiowire.com, as well as The PT Project, is completely free. Both sites include information and communication opportunities for those currently employed within the field of physical therapy, as well as anyone who may be considering physical therapy as a profession or that is simply interested in increasing their knowledge about research, techniques, philosophies, and news related to the practice of physical therapy.
Physiowire.com is a social media network aimed at promoting communication among those within the field of physical therapy. Membership is free and the site can be found at http://www.physiowire.com.
The PT Project is an independent and free resource with the mission of protecting, promoting and expanding the ethical practice of physical therapy. For more information about The PT Project, visit http://www.theptproject.com.
