  • Useful for DPT students

    As a DPT 2 student, this app allows for the recognition of patterns in presentations that gives me the confidence to treat on clinical rotations. It's a great resource to guide rational and clinical thinking as an early clinician. The ability to replay skills and interventions is beyond helpful. This app provides the cognitive supplement to your psychomotor practice. Enjoy!
  • Awesome app!

    Wow! This app is seriously so helpful! Thank you for creating this app series. I have been able to use it as a PT student in order to help organize my thought process for figuring out what is wrong with my patient and how to go about treating it. Not only is every step of each examination procedure explained in writing, but there is also a video with audio for each procedure. Highly recommend this app!
  • Great!

    I love this wrist and hand app! The wrist and hand is so complex and I had trouble making sense of it in school, but this app helped break it down for me. I'm so thankful to have it in clinic to reference and refresh my memory.
