    Waste of money. Nonstandard techniques with limited / no discussions of purpose.

  • Implemented Day 1

    By TGEckard
    I am a physical therapist who is well versed in manual therapy but who has had little practice on the upper extremity outside the shoulder. Recently began working in a clinic with certified hand therapists and bought this app to improve my elbow/wrist/hand manual therapy skills. Learned new techniques for these regions and literally implemented them the next day with success. Well presented logical flow of information from technique description to video to evidence for many techniques. Well worth the money for clinicians who practice or want to begin practicing manual therapy.

  • Great Application for Experianced and New Clinicians

    By T Denninger
    Excellent program that details a wide variety of evidence based techniques including thrust and non thrust manual treatments. The format is well designed and user friendly. Video quality is impeccable with multiple angles detailing patient and clinician positioning. Detailed explanations of techniques are narrated in the video as well as written making access appropriate at almost anytime. This is the next generation of education and clinical tools. T Denninger

    This is an indispensable app for both clinician and student that far exceeded my expectations. It is comprehensive (going so far as to include an excellent segment on the Historical Overview of Manipulative Therapy). It is user-friendly, with hi-resolution videos shot from various vantage points with still images of hand placements and excellent audio overlay. The content is well-organized and easy to access for the clinician and student alike. The ability to link to (and e-mail) abstracts of the best-available, current, and supporting evidence is a great feature. This app is a MUST-HAVE for clinicians and students!!! Apps like this will make over-priced textbooks obsolete-I will be including this as a strongly recommended resource for students-it's a BARGAIN!! This app is, after all, Clinically Relevant. Do you and your patients a big favor and download this now!! Gary Austin PS My wife is a PT, CHT and she thought this was an AMAZING APP - I can't keep her away from it!!
  • Nothing else like this for manual therapy

    By EricPT
    This app is a one-stop shop for all upper extremity manual therapy interventions. The associated videos are clear and really do a good job demonstrating each technique. The navigation is a little less than intuitive initially, but once I became accustomed to it, it was no problem. The supporting evidence is included for each region, and you can email PubMed links right from the app, which is awesome. I'd like to see there eventually be evidence in support of specific techniques where it's available. Overall, this app rocks and I will be using it in the clinic and the classroom. Nice job!
  • Excellent Tool!

    By DTeyhen
    They really knocked it out of the ballpark with this manual therapy toolbox for the upper extremity. Every healthcare provider that performs manual therapy should download this tool. The instructions are succinct and well written. The videos are high quality. The link to supporting evidence is the icing on the cake. It is easy to use and very efficient. This is a great tool for clinicians as a quick clinical reference. It is a great tool for both experienced clinicians wanting to improve their skills and clinicians in training as they learn the techniques. All I can state it now!
  • From the App Developers

    By Ben Hando
    For anyone having difficulty loading or opening this app after purchasing: please keep in mind this is a large app due to all the high quality videos. Because of this, you can’t download the app to your device over a 3G network. You must use a wifi connection or simply download it directly to iTunes and sync your device. Even over wifi it may take 10-15 minutes to download, depending on your internet speed. However, after the initial download, all the videos/content will be on your device and will be extremely quick and responsive to run and control. If after purchasing you’re still having trouble, simply delete the app from your device and re-download it. As long as you “purchase” it the second time under the same account you originally bought the app with, you won’t be charged again. If you’re still having difficulty, please contact us directly through our website (see link above for support) and we’ll be happy to troubleshoot with you. Ben Hando Clinically Relevant Technologies
  • Awesome App

    By Broncosfan07
    This is a great app that is relevant to the busy clinician in the everyday practice. Good descriptive properties and the videos help the clinician on how to properly perform the test. I have used other apps by this vendor and they perform just as well. My only complaint is that they did not come out sooner. I hope you enjoy this app as it is well worth the money
