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.

  • App locks you out

    By MMOX, PT
    The app requires a login every time you use it and then does not accept my correct user name and password. I find it extremely frustrating.
  • Great quick, portable reference tool

    By Prof. L.
    Love this app as a quick reference tool on the go! I had difficulty registering to sign in and received a fast response and resolution to my issue.
  • Great Info

    By dwback
    The videos and EBM are both informative and beneficial teaching students in a clicks setting. I am able to access specific regions and zero in a category easily. I use it nearly every day.
  • Again a Fail

    By boogajess
    It seems this company likes to tweak the app a little then knock everybody off and make you reregister and pay again. This is the second time it has happened to me. So be aware once you buy you will likely have to buy again because they are forcing you too. I have been an orthopedic physician assistant and truth be told didn’t reference this app more than once or twice. It has some good content but nothing you cannot find on the net for free. So your choice.

  • Great resource

    I use this app frequently with my practice and highly recommend to others
  • Works great and love the update

    I love the concept of this app. It has a potential to be a ortho pocket book Application does what it says perfectly. I use this app all the time. It takes the guess work out completely and SP- IN / SN-OUT feature is absolutely brilliant especially when it recommends cluster of test to achieve accuracy. There is nothing out on App store that can do this in my opinion. I enjoy the professional/ precise videos that can be used to educate clients before the actual test or techniques is performed. Overall well job well done. I did have some error login in after the recent update. However Dawn was very helpful and was able to resolve the issue fast. Useful app would recommend to anyone.
  • Love!

    Doesn’t allow you to register. Looks as if you have to purchase something first. Wasted my time.
