[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - Announcing that Clinically Relevant Technologies, the developers of CORE - Clinical ORthopaedic Exam, has released their latest update for iPhone and iPod touch users who perform clinical examinations to diagnosis musculosketal problems. The application contains thorough, evidence-based content that is presented in text and video form to illustrate step-by-step test maneuvers. CORE also provides result indications and peer medical reviews, along with a PUBMed reference link.
CORE contains almost 250 different clinical tests, covering tendinous, neuropathic, ligamentous problems for each body part. The app provides text and video instruction and referencing for performing the specific physical maneuvers required to reach a diagnosis. Every step of the way, there is evidence to back up the complete, thorough and extensive content.
"Believe it or not there isn't even a textbook in print that has the information that is in this application, consolidated in the manner that it is. It's a great tool to have even if you know all these procedures. What is hard to memorize is the diagnostic properties, which may just seem like a bunch of abbreviations and numbers but having those readily available for each test is phenomenal," explains Dan Rhon President of Clinically Relevant Technologies.
It took Rhon and his team more than three hundred hours of work to compile the content of CORE. Their mandate was to ensure that the app's information was all relevant, thorough and evidence based with references to guide those healthcare workers who must perform the specific physical maneuvers that help determine musculoskeletal or orthopedic diagnosis.
The CORE application provides step-by-step illustration of each procedure and indication, using text, videos and medical reviews from peers and links to PUBMed references. Everything is covered, from the extremities to the spine.
