Medical apps give insight into joint problems

7 June 2012

Educational app developer 3D4Medical has released new versions of their
Pro creations for knee, hip, shoulder, ankle & foot, and hand and wrist study.

The new products are designed to help medical and healthcare professionals, physical therapists, medical students, and anyone with pain or discomfort in those areas to learn more.

Featuring detailed graphics and animations, the apps allow users to cut across the joint with their finger and see mutliple cross-sections. They can also cut away layers to reveal muscles, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, and see examples of disease states and treatments, and muscles and ligaments in action.

The developers want to replicate the success of their Muscle System Pro III app, which has been downloaded more than 200,000 times and been one of the top five grossing iPad medical apps on the AppStore for the past two years.

Project Manager Breda Jackson said: “Anyone with an interest in, or problems with, knees, shoulders, hips, ankles, feet, hands or wrists will find these apps useful.

“As well as studying cross-sections, users can zoom in on certain sections, and rotate the entire area. They can also view the joint from various angles, not just the standard anatomical options. “They provide a unique insight into how the joints work, and potential
causes for pain and discomfort.”

Versions are available for the Mac and iPad through the AppStore.
