Medical apps give insight into joint problems
7 June 2012
Educational app developer 3D4Medical has released new versions
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
causes for pain and discomfort.”
Versions are available for the Mac and iPad through the AppStore.
