With our brand new update you can follow along with your daily exercise videos as you recover at home following your injury or surgery. Curovate is a physical therapy app

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

Super useful // ACL revision surgery

Unfortunately for me, I tore my ACL graft again after having the surgery 8 years ago. Fortunately for me, Curovate now exists!

The app is super easy to use and helps you make sure you’re keeping up with your protocol, which can get monotonous and easy to forget at times. It’s customizable to graft type which is super helpful. Plus beyond that, its creator, Nirtal, is accessible and responds to any questions you have very quickly — big question for me was that I had a patellar allograft put in, which isn’t an immediate option when you customize the app. Nirtal walked me through what I needed to know based on my situation.

That’s what I think is great about it — it’s a program designed by a really great PT (Nirtal) who is available to you while you use the app. I got on the subscription service and was able to do a virtual pt session with him, which helped answer a lot of my questions. I’m actually using the app in conjunction with a separate PT, which is probably overkill, but I just find really helps me stay focused and complete everything I need to do at home.

I agree the second time around is tough! I sincerely appreciate the fantastic review. It was a pleasure speaking with you on our video call last week and it is amazing to see how motivated you are to recover after your second ACL tear. I'm glad that I could help you during our session. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns as you progress through your recovery. On a side note, I don't think what you are doing is overkill. I think you are doing your best to make sure this is your last ACL surgery! All the best and stay in touch - Nirtal Shah PT, CEO Curovate

Highly recommend… A great program

I had my first knee replacement surgery in June of 2022 and got this app after a month or so but wished had it from day one and I would have really benefited. But this 1st surgery was not successful and I had to have a revision surgery in Feb of 2024. I have been using Curovate from day one this time and it has really helped me. I also had a fracture during revision surgery and Nirtal really helped me by answering all my questions promptly and guiding me as to which exercises I shouldn’t do given the fracture. I am using this app along with in person manual PT. It is a great supplement as I can choose to do the exercises that really helps me and skip the ones that are easy. Plus in person PT will be done soon and I will continue with the app as long as I want. Thank you Nirtal for all your support and also even showing how my husband can use the app for his balance issues. I appreciate it. I highly recommend this app!!

Thank you very much for the kind review. It has been a pleasure working with you and helping you through your revision knee replacement. I think you have done a great job on your recovery and all of your hard work is paying off. I wish you the best with your continued knee replacement recovery. As always if you have any questions about your knee replacement or the video based exercises reach out to me via the in-app chat and I will be happy to help. As for your husband there are some aspects of the app that he can use now for daily balance training. Send me a chat message and I can help him out as well.


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!
