Barry Nguyen, APAM, looks at a digital version of a well-known physiotherapy instrument.

PT GONIOMETER

Developer: Mark Busman

Where to get it: Apple app store

The PT Goniometer app helps physiotherapists digitally measure the range of motion of their patients’ movements over a given period, utilising the iPhone or iPad camera.

This app is designed for physiotherapists and can work on Apple’s iPhone or iPad devices.

It has useful ‘physiotherapy’ templates to help you record the appropriate data digitally, including end feel and categorising movements actively and passively.

It also allows the physiotherapist to create individual profiles for each patient.
