By Clinically Relevant Technologies
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) for the Upper Extremity is a powerful clinical reference and teaching tool for any student, clinician or educator involved in the practice or the teaching of manipulative/manual therapy for musculoskeletal disorders. This essential and comprehensive mobile companion provides manipulative techniques for the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand presented in the context of best current evidence for use in treating upper extremity disorders. Each technique has detailed, step by step written instructions as well as corresponding high-quality video demonstration that includes audio instruction (note: the video files download to your device upon installation and therefore do not require an internet connection).
*** This is a large app (due to high quality videos). Apple will not let you download this over 3G, so if you buy off your phone or iPad, you will have to use a wi-fi connection. Or, download on iTunes on your computer and then sync. If there is a problem with the download (app appears to have bugs, doesn't open, etc) then delete and re-download (you won't get charged again).
Summaries of the most recent clinical research involving manipulative therapy are provided for each region (shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand) with links to PUBmed abstracts of relevant clinical studies. Additionally a brief summary of the history of manipulative therapy is presented, as well as definitions of terminology.
OMT UE Features:
•Instructions for 38 orthopaedic manipulative techniques for the upper extremity
•High-quality video demonstration for each technique performed by fellowship trained orthopaedic manual therapists
•Each video includes two angles of the technique being performed. Therefore, there’s no guessing the important or even subtle details of the techniques performance (pause, rewind, forward within the video)
•Each video includes corresponding audio instructions that describe the technique as it’s being performed
•Each technique includes common diagnoses or “indications” for which the technique is typically performed
•Techniques include high-velocity thrust joint manipulations, non-thrust joint mobilizations, muscle stretching and “contract-relax” stretching techniques
•Summaries of the current state of the research on OMT for each upper extremity region (shoulder, elbow and wrist/hand)
•Links to PUBmed abstracts of research on OMT for upper extremity disorders (internet connection required)
•Easily email PUBmed abstracts of the pertinent studies to yourself or colleagues from within the app
•Historical overview of manipulative therapy
•The ability to show video out from the app and display the videos on a larger screens or overhead projector (via Apple TV)
