Created by two orthopaedic surgeons, this app is a video focused on patient education regarding stretching, strengthening, and agility exercises to prevent ACL injuries.  The app design is simple, and includes a single video about 18 minutes long, as well as contact information for the website www.sportsipa.com (sports injury prevention academy).  The video itself is well-narrated and well-produced and demonstrates many useful stretching and strengthening activities.  In addition, narration by the two orthopaedic surgeon developers explain the purpose and motivation for developing this course.  Overall, this app can be very useful to any patient/athlete interested in preventing ACL injuries.  Unlike other apps, the developers are board-certified orthopaedic surgeons, thereby lending credibility to the recommendations.
