iOrtho+® is the #1 mobile guide for orthopedic clinical tests and manual techniques. This App is developed from advanced, evidence-based knowledge and extensive clinical practice. This reference guide is designed for rehabilitation professionals, educators, clinicians and students by Therapeutic Articulations, LLC. For just $14.99 you get access to hundreds of tests and techniques carefully organized and documented by Dr. Dawn T Gulick, PhD, PT, ATC, CSCS with over 30 years of orthopedic experience. Dr. Gulick currently serves as a the founder and President of Therapeutic Articulations as well as Professor of Physical Therapy at Widener University and a Physical Therapist/Athletic Trainer for US Olympic/Paralympic teams. Her credentials also include authorship of Ortho Notes, Mobilization Notes (F.A. Davis Publishing), and over 50 peer-reviewed publications. Her years of experience have culminated in this definitive mobile tool for orthopedic clinicians around the world. iOrtho+® is used by tens of thousands of medical professionals and students. Navigation is as simple as touching one of the 8 major joints and spine areas on the skeleton to then drill down to the sub-categories (organized by tissues) of individual tests and techniques. In an instant, you will have high quality images and full video with concise descriptions for study or clinical practice. All images and videos use the unique approach of colored gloves (red for stabilization and green for mobilization) and vector arrows to improve clarity and enhance the user experience. Through easy navigation, you will also have access to statistical information, and, when available, the abstract or full text version of the references. Mark the tests you access most often as "favorite". Recall them later in the favorites menu with one tap from the home screen. You can even contribute a test to iOrtho+® by sending the information to If your test is added, you will be sent a gift card! The initial download allows you to preview the format and table of contents of iOrtho+® before you buy. The $14.99 in-app purchase gives you access to ALL joints & frequent, free updates. This one low price of $14.99 provides you with a state-of-the- art reference. Textbooks are only updated every 3-4 years, cost hundreds of dollars, and are a lot heavy than your device. iOrtho+® updates are performed regularly as new techniques or data emerge, or simply to improve the user experience. Through the purchase process you can decide to download all of the content on your device so you never need internet access or you can select to keep the data in the cloud to only access when you have a Wi-Fi connection. You can also change that option at any time. Since there is a lot of data in iOrtho+®, be sure to have a strong and uninterrupted Wi-Fi connection when you download.

  • Excellent app

    By KaylaGClendeninn
    Well worth the money, purchased when I was a PT student, and still use it today as a CI with my students. Any time I have a problem with the app, I email support and then respond and fix the problem within the hour.
  • Cannot restore purchase

    Great app but having difficulty restoring purchase😏
  • Exactly what I needed!

    By Stew9254
    As a physical therapy student, this app was everything to help me get through special tests and manual techniques. Every test at the touch of a finger and much easier to learn on the go this way instead of bringing textbook along with you.

  • It's a PT textbook on your phone

    By Richard G PT
    This is a great app. I use it often in clinical practice for reference. I would recommend any physical therapist to download this. The price for it is a steal.
  • Excellent app. Extremely useful. No regrets

    By Swetareni
    I purchased this app yesterday and after going through the basic interface I bough the updated version instantly. The app has more than 350 orthopedic condition tests with videos, manual mobilization techniques with high quality explanation and uses, and statistical data along with citations of the tests performed in identifying the underlying ortho conditions. I'm a physical therapist and I found this app extremely helpful. It's humanly impossible to remember all the tests on your finger tips and this app makes it so easy to diagnose and treat ortho conditions. If you are a PT and work in an outpatient facility then this app is a must. Free updates and offline viewing is an added bonus. Love it. Thank you!
  • Horrible- hasn't worked in months

    By SPT_DD
    Do not buy! So many glitches and it does not work. Every time I try to click on a picture it tells me it fails to load. I've contacted customer service before and they help but it always ends up failing again. SAD!
  • Informative App

    By Monij225
