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.

  • Super helpful

    Pay the $10 to get full access to videos. Absolutely worth it. I also love the quick stats for tests. I’m a fairly new grad and wish I’d had this in school!
  • Super fast response for help!!

    I have had the iortho+ app for sometime and recently when I downloaded ios12 it started asking me for a log in or to register. I emailed them via their website and they responded almost immediately about a new security measure they implemented and how to register when I was already a customer. Followed the instructions they gave and got right in. Super easy, quick response and super helpful!!
  • Love this App

    By EiraPerez
    At first I couldn’t log in and I was frustrated so I emailed the company for help. I got a reply within min with a step by step directions on how to log on. You can not log in until you register Select register Enter an email user Enter a password Select register. (Do not select log in) And it worked!! The videos help a lot when I can’t remember a Special Test!

  • Excellent app

    By KaylaGClendeninn
    Well worth the money, purchased when I was a PT student, and still use it today as a CI with my students. Any time I have a problem with the app, I email support and then respond and fix the problem within the hour.
  • Cannot restore purchase

    By Jajohnina
    Great app but having difficulty restoring purchase😏
  • Exactly what I needed!

    By Stew9254
    As a physical therapy student, this app was everything to help me get through special tests and manual techniques. Every test at the touch of a finger and much easier to learn on the go this way instead of bringing textbook along with you.

  • It's a PT textbook on your phone

    By Richard G PT
    This is a great app. I use it often in clinical practice for reference. I would recommend any physical therapist to download this. The price for it is a steal.
