.PHYSIO Top-Level Domain

The term "physio" is for physiotherapy or concerns physiotherapists. The .PHYSIO is a Community application which is endorsed by the World Congress of Physical Therapy (sole international voice for physiotherapy) representing more than 350 000 physiotherapists worldwide in 106 organisations.

According to Wikipedia, "Physical therapy (or physiotherapy), often abbreviated PT, is a health care profession primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disabilities and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention carried out by Physical Therapists (known as Physiotherapists in some countries) and Physical Therapist Assistants (known as Physical Rehabilitation Therapistsin some countries)".

As revealed in this article where the story of this project is covered; " Glenn Ruscoe, part owner of Perth physiotherapy practice Riseley Physiotheraphy, has applied for the .physio domain, which he plans to sell to physiotherapists worldwide."
