This app is created by Stryker as a patient education tool for surgeons using Stryker total hip, total shoulder, and total knee replacement systems.  The app is organized into charts, my charts, and “create a chart.”  The create a chart feature allows the user to add “pins” to the educational image-based slide show to add commentary within the chart.  A pen is also available to mark the background or highlight particular areas of the image.  Once complete, the chart appears in the “my charts” tab for later reference.  Thus, a surgeon could spend some time creating a personalized chart for his/her surgeries and then use that chart to education patients in clinic about what the procedure will entail.  Overall, the user interface is very simple and easy to navigate and the app is well-made.  As a patient education tool, this may be useful for surgeons who have time to explain the details of surgery to patients accompanied by images.
