Our App Of The Day – The Evidence Based OMT

Share

Clinically Relevant Technologies, developers of medical applications for smart phones, today is pleased to announce their popular Orthopedic Manipulative Therapy app suite for mobile devices is now optimized for your desktop via Mac App Store. The applications are designed for clinicians, teachers, and students who use manual therapy (OMT) to treat musculosketal problems. With nearly 140 techniques and high quality video to now be viewed on large screens in clinic/classroom, this series aims to lead the change in clinical education delivery.

"We’re very excited because we believe this content lends itself well not only to digital mobile platforms but also to easy dekstop access. Being able to read instructions, hear the instructions read aloud and then observe the technique performed from multiple angles provides a powerful tool for mastering manipulative techniques. There have been many requests to make this available for this more conventional platform. I just wish there was something like this available when I went through my fellowship training," states Dr. Ben Hando, partner and content developer at Clinically Relevant Technologies.

As our App of Day, all our regular readers know the trailer for this app will feature on every page of our site for a whole day. Just scroll to the bottom of this page to take a look.

The Evidence Based OMT suite app close to 140 different orthopedic manipulative therapy techniques for the treatment of many different musculoskeletal conditions. Care was taken to include techniques that have been used in clinical trials and reported in the peer-reviewed medical literature. Each technique is presented with written instructions, high-quality video demonstration with audio overlay, "key points" for performing the technique successfully as well as common variations of the technique’s performance. Every step of the way there is evidence to back up the complete, thorough and extensive content. The high quality videos were modified to optimize the larger screen on a desktop/laptop computer.

"There is currently no such compendium of techniques in this format, easily referenced from your computer, that allows for detailed technique review, access, and latest evidence. It’s a great tool to have even if you know all these procedures. The research to support their use provided in an easy to understand and highly referenced "Evidence Summary" is phenomenal and allows you to share this information with colleagues and patients," explains Dan Rhon, partner at Clinically Relevant Technologies.

"Perhaps the best part of these applications is that as more research is published on OMT, we’ll be able to update the applications with the most up to date content very easily," points out Hando.

It took Rhon and Hando and their team well over five hundred hours of work to compile the clinical content for this program. Their mandate was to ensure that the app’s information was thorough, current, evidence-based, an ultimately relevant for use as a teaching tool and clinical reference.

"There are a lot of ‘different schools’ of manual therapy out there and a variety of professions that practice it. We purposefully focused on the evidence, by looking to include techniques used in clinical trials providing treatment to patients regardless of their ‘school’ or ‘background’. We feel that regardless of profession or background, this will provide you with a summary of evidence-based OMT treatment techniques."

The Evidence Based OMT program provides step-by-step illustration of each procedure and indication, using text, videos and supporting medical journal articles, and links to PUBMed references. Everything is covered, from the extremities to the spine.
