CORE is an acronym for:

Catered to you
On the go

CORE HandTM for the I-phone is an innovative Hand Therapy Exercise Mobile Application designed to enable a clinician to create an individualised hand therapy exercise program to assist their patient’s rehabilitation. The App enables a patient to have their exercise program on the go. It will remind them of their exercises and provides not only the description but also a short video demonstrating the exercise. The clinician is able to personalise the program to the patient, making the App a useful tool to optimise your rehabilitation experience.

The App has been developed for a clinician by a Hand Therapist to provide Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy advice and exercise guidance. It includes splint application and specific exercise program provision. We have worked hard to maximise the ease of use and functionality of the App to make it easier for the clinician and the Patient alike.

Ratings and Reviews

Outstanding! Made all the difference! Thank you!


I had a motorcycle accident in the summer of 2015.

I was sent to the Royal Derby hospital to put my wrist and hand back together.

Following surgery I had a lot of exercises to do, this app provided me with videos of each exercise and a timer to remind me when to do them!

Thank you for this. I now have almost full movement and use of my hand. I have not encountered anything I cannot do. Following treatment and physio my life is unaffected by the injuries. The app played no small part in my recovery.




I am currently using this app for physio treatment on a finger that was stitched back together and found that it has been very helpful. The treatment centre and the help they have given me has been absolutely outstanding. Thankyou.
