iOrtho+® is the #1 mobile guide for orthopedic special 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.

Exactly what I needed!


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.

App never works


This app never works!!! Every time I try to open a test it just spins like it’s loading but it never loads...super frustrating not to get what u paid for....
