Physio knowledge on the fly

 

Here is an app that is useful for busy clinicians who face challenges accessing the internet or computer.

PHYSIOPEDIA

Developer: Physiopedia Plus Limited Where to get it: GooglePlay store or Apple app store

Price: Free or US$0.99 monthly subscription for the premium version

The Physiopedia app claims to be the ultimate reference tool for physiotherapists.

The app re-organises the knowledge from one of the largest and most popular physiotherapy-related websites into your pocket via a mobile app to help support you clinically on the fly. 

The app provides an easy-to-use and slick interface to search articles of interest free.

The ‘native’ app enhances the experience you would traditionally feel on the Physiopedia website, which is ideal for a busy clinical environment.

Categorising the articles into favourites can be done with a low monthly subscription fee. The paid offline mode is a useful feature if you do not temporarily have access to the internet.

The Physiopedia app is a useful digital resource to support physiotherapists clinically, who are working in busy environments where they may have challenges accessing the internet or a desktop computer. 

Pros

  • Easy-to-use interface
  • More convenient to use compared to the website
  • Offline mode can be useful when there is no access to the internet
  • The paid subscription version is inexpensive 
  • Content library developed for physiotherapists is regularly updated.

Cons

  • Does not curate content from other reputable physiotherapy resources
  • Heavily text-rich, with only occasional videos and images. 

APP MARKETPLACE

The APA has introduced an APA app marketplace on our website, which provides companies with the opportunity to advertise their app in either the featured or non-featured positions. Media kits are also available to download from this page. Go to australian.physio/app-market-place for more details.
