Use on either iPhone or iPad means I don't pay for specialized devices, we already use these devices for office staff. We have our therapists consult this app when making diagnoses. "

It comes with 25 videos that teach you about your muscles and your trigger points. Trigger points are the spots on your body that trigger pain elsewhere. This app would be great for anyone but specifically for physical therapist, massage therapists and chiropractic practices. "

    The Goniometer app is a virtual goniometer that will help physical therapists to measure their patients' range of motion (ROM) for a particular joint. Easy to use, this app is able to determine the extent of a patient's joint injury and the expected recovery time.

    "Not sure this is really needed for physical therapy as all it does is measure angles really. I may be a little ignorant of tactics used by physical therapists, but I would think that there is not need to hit an exact angle for some sort of stretch. If you want to measure range of motion, this should be able to be tested visually."
