Orthopedic Patient Education
From the Developer
This award winning app is an animation based patient education app for healthcare professionals to effectively communicate anatomy, conditions and treatments to patients. The app covers a variety of conditions such as joint diseases and disorders, as well as joint physiology. To see a video of the app in action - please press the video on this page : http://applications.3d4medical.com/orthopedic_education.php or press the support link below.
Included within the app are over 140 highly detailed animations that allow users to effortlessly search via category. A further description of each animation is given in a quick and easy to use reference index.
The user can pause and then draw on any animation with the pen tool to highlight and annotate specific images. These images can then either be imported into the consultation tool or sent directly to the patient via email. This consultation tool (not available on iPad1), allows the user to create and edit a PDF document made up of annotated screens taken from the animations.
This app draws upon animations found in 3D4Medical’s Body Region Pro series apps as well as additional animations unavailable elsewhere. These animations have been brought together to make for a more comprehensive repository for orthopedic conditions and treatments.
Further new animations covering bone fractures and their treatments, along with even more animations covering sprains, strains and other injuries to be added.
