Advancements in Physiotherapy
Smartphone and iPad apps for physical therapy professionals and patients are a growing trend. Many apps are inexpensive or even free and provide handy resources like physiotherapy glossaries, exercise videos, orthopaedic diagnosis tools, clinical tests and even 360-degree visual anatomy. Other apps, like PT Genie, are designed to assist patients with their home exercise programs. With printable and emailable exercises, pictures, protocols, and evaluation forms, these intuitive apps help clinics save time and money while improving patient compliance.
