A surprisingly informative general orthopaedic app made by and promoting the practice of Dr. Kevin Yip at Gleneagles Hospital in Singapore.

Overall: 4
Functionality: 4
Coolness: 3

This app appears to be created by Dr. Kevin Yip and contains a good amount of general orthopaedic patient information.  The app itself is divided into 3 categories: injury, rehab, and videos.  The injury tab uses a tap-forward navigation scheme to selection the area and injury to learn about.  I counted about 30 topics, ranging from sciatica to carpal tunnel syndrome, Achilles tendon rupture, or ingrown toe nail.  Each sub-section includes a paragraph about the condition and information about causes, prevention, and various treatment options supplemented by images of average quality. The rehab section includes information about exercises (passive, active, lower back, and shoulder).  There is also general information about platelet-rich plasma, as well as tips about preparing for your surgery.  Overall, this app seems to be geared for Dr. Yip’s practice, but still offers some generic information for curious patients.
