Forearm Goniometer - (Medical App)
Forearm Goniometer is an accelerator based goniometer device to measure functional range of motion. It specifically measures supination and pronation of the forearm with ability to compare left and right side. BOTTOM LINE: The only application found that specifically measures forearm supination and pronation. At $4.99 and with only the ability to measure supination/pronation, which may be an infrequent joint in a typical practice, it’s hard to recommend unless you predominately see this patient population.
Anticoagulant Net Benefit - (Medical App)
This app is an electronic format of the CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED clinical prediction rules, whose scores help estimate risk of ischemic stroke or bleeding, respectively. The “Net Benefit” of using warfarin is calculated based on these factors, allowing for a benefit comparison for its use at the point of care. The developer presents the app as used for educational and informational purposes only, with the standard caveat that it should not replace professional medical advice. BOTTOM LINE: This app has an intuitive navigation and allows for efficient calculation of CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED scores to help determine risk versus benefit of using warfarin in a patient. It can be a helpful point-of-care tool and like
Clinometer – level and slope finder - (Medical App)
Clinometer – level and slope finder is a measurement tool intended to calculate angles in respect to gravity. It does this by using three built in accelerometers to indicate tilt, inclination and elevation. BOTTOM LINE: The Clinometer is a very accurate inclinometer for measuring joint angles, and at $0.99 a great deal. However, it does have very limited features compared to other similar applications on the market, which limits the full value of it’s use in the clinic and makes it hard to recommend.
