Have you had an ACL injury or surgery, a Knee Replacement or a Hip Replacement? This App, developed by a Physical Therapist with 20 years of experience, will help you reduce pain, motivate you to do your daily exercises, and keep you engaged with your recovery.

Curovate provides daily video guided physical therapy exercises based on the best knee and hip surgery rehabilitation protocols and guidelines. The exercises within Curovate are based on the best evidence, as well as the clinical experience of a Physical Therapist with 20 years of experience.

Curovate can measure your knee or hip joint movements (i.e, range of motion), at home with no special equipment. Curovate requires nothing more than your phone to give you an accurate range of motion measurement in a few seconds - watch the video to see how simple it is! The app also provides progress tracking for every repetition and set of exercise that you complete, shows you your achievements daily, weekly and monthly, and rewards you with badges for your hard work.

The ultimate goal of knee and hip surgery is to return to the sports and physical activity you love and to get back to your normal life and Curovate can help you achieve these goals.

ACL Injury or Surgery - Curovate can be used by people after an ACL injury by selecting the pre-surgery option in the app, or if not planning to have surgery, by selecting the non-operative ACL option in the app.

Curovate is a physical therapy app for people who have had a patellar tendon graft or a hamstring tendon graft used to repair their ACL. Many people also have had a cadaver graft, or a graft taken from a deceased person, or a quadriceps tendon graft. All of the research states that the rehabilitation and exercises that people need to do after a cadaver or quadriceps tendon graft for an ACL repair is the same as a patellar tendon graft rehabilitation protocol.

Total Knee Replacement - this is when your entire knee joint is replaced with artificial parts. This is done for people who have osteoarthritis in their knee and they are limited by pain and inability to do their daily activities. If this is you, then Curovate can help.

Curovate provides specific daily and weekly physical therapy exercises to help you recover. You can also measure the exact angle or range of motion of your new knee joint to make sure you are meeting your goals and staying on track for your recovery. The joint replacement of your knee is just the first important step to achieving pain free function of your knee. Now it is crucial that you continue daily exercises to get stronger after surgery. You can do this by starting your knee replacement rehab at home.

The exercises in the app were developed from rehabilitation guidelines and knee replacement protocols all clearly referenced in the app and 20 years of clinical experience from a physical therapist. Tracking your exercise repetitions, sets and your overall progress is also done by the app so you don’t have to track your daily recovery on paper. If you have questions about if this app can help you after surgery, please email the physical therapist and CEO of Curovate, Nirtal Shah at

Excellent ACL app developed by an ACL expert

I’ve been using Curovate for 2 months now following my ACL reconstruction surgery. This app adds structure to all of the at-home work required following an ACL surgery. You progress thru stages where you do each exercise along with the video in the app. I’ve also paired this with 30 min video visits with the app’s PT/physio developer (an add-on service he offers). He’s extremely knowledgeable re ACL rehab and is able to provide really good feedback and analysis on how I’m progressing. I’ve been blown away at how effective the app and video visits have been. I’m 100% sure I’ll do a better job with my rehab by using the app. What’s more the app is really cheap given all the time and cost that goes into one of these big surgeries and rehabs. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend!!

The app is very easy to navigate! I started using it just a month after my ACL reconstruction. Everyday, you got a list of daily exercises to do, and the exercises have video tutorials to guide you through it. You can also measure your knee range of motion to track your progress. Highly recommended!!

A Great Resource for Knee Injury Recovery

This app has been great, especially in the times of shelter in place and COVID 19 - it’s a great solution for those of us with knee pain, injuries or who are post surgery and can’t get to PT or the doctor right now. Highly recommend for anyone with knee issues. Will keep using this app to maintain and prevent pain in the future.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for the kind words! Yes I agree it is a challenging time to find access to rehabilitation. It's great that you are already thinking about prevention. Keep up the hard work!!
