The app is designed to provide you as a physiotherapy student or practitioner with an extensive, but easy to use overview about basic assessment techniques and special tests that are being used in physiotherapeutic assessment, organized by body part.
At the same time, we are providing you with the latest evidence regarding different orthopedic tests and we are giving advice about their usability in practice according to our Clinical Value Matrix, similar to what you might know from Clinical Practice Guidelines.
Our goal with the app is to make your life as a therapist or student as easy as possible. Therefore, all assessment techniques and special tests we cover are described in a few words plus you can watch the respective video on our YouTube channel from within the app to learn how the assessment should be performed!
All references we provide are clickable and will direct you to the respective research paper on Pubmed.
At last, the app has to be seen as a work in progress. On the one hand, our YouTube channel Physiotutors is constantly growing as new videos are added each week and on the other hand, new research is published, which might impact the clinical value of the different orthopedic tests covered in this app.
Therefore, we will add new releases on a regular basis and the app will grow as time progresses!
We would have wished to have such an app ourselves when we started as students and we sincerely hope that you benefit from it as much as possible! Thanks for following us on social media and for your support by buying our app!

Ratings and Reviews
App needs improvement
I love physiotutors’ youtube channel so I was super excited to get the app. I like the user interface, but it’s not what I expected for $35. It’s a pretty pricey app, especially for a student. But I do understand that it costs time and money to keep updating it. As always the videos and statistical significance are great, but I would love for there to be a suggestions section for improvement on the app. A search feature would be nice as well. Overall, good app but I would like to see some improvements and maybe more common conditions.

Thanks for your review! You can always send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org and we certainly appreciate the input from the community! To answer to some of your comments: there is a search feature on the front page at the top. It's also explained in the trailer. Plus you can favorite your most used tests for quick access.
I loved the YouTube videos from Physiotutors and now with this app not only do I have quick access to them but they are organized in a way that makes basic assessments a breeze! Thanks guys!
Why did I pay for exact same YouTube videos?( I guess I do owe you for the great videos)

we make no secret out of the fact that the app uses the video content from our channel but formats it and enriches the user experience of our evidence based content. It's all explained in the app description
