RecovAware ™ cofounder John Bishop is an avid cyclist and skier. When he is not with his loving wife Julie or in the office, you can be sure to find him on a mountain or out on his bike.

Mobile technology is changing every aspect of daily life, and human performance is one of the biggest areas of opportunity for disruption. As an exercise physiologist and personal trainer specializing in post-rehab exercise management, I have experienced this positive disruption first-hand. From food tracking apps to wearable movement trackers, there really does seem to be an app for everything. With that said, there was never a high-quality app for my post-rehab training clients — until I discovered RecovAware.
Put simply, dealing with a knee injury or managing an ongoing knee condition is a drag. We get it, we’ve been there. What we realized is that no matter the condition, the most important goal is recovering your quality of life and returning to your sports and activities without pain or fear of reinjury. However, the timeline for completing this goal is often not predictable and depends on multiple, dynamic variables, some of which are in your control and some of which are not. What you can control is your motivation to keep up with your recovery while keeping track of your progress towards your recovery goals.
The adrenaline rush of extreme sports has always drawn me to them. I started snowboarding and skateboarding at 8 years old and began wakeboarding at around 12. If it has to do with riding a board, you can most likely count me in. Unfortunately, with this love of extreme sports comes the inevitable possibility of injury.

Returning to sport or activity after a knee injury is a difficult and demanding process that requires combining the recovery of physical health with confidence in the knee and motivation to be active again. Arden et al. found that improving motivation and confidence while reducing fear is correlated to an improved likelihood of returning to …
We are three guys who have participated in multiple competitive and recreational sports. Along the way, we also sustained multiple knee injuries. Consequently, we have repeatedly experienced the pain of returning to our pre-injury levels of activity. The path to recovery is demanding enough on its own with surgery (if necessary) and rehabilitation, but, when faced with returning to activity, the fear of re-injury and/or a lack of confidence in the knee can result in an unnecessary reduction or delay of active participation.
