Basic app to assist with fracture classification and management

Overall: 3+
Functionality: 4
Coolness: 2

Fractures is published by Inter-Med, a company dedicated to creating educational medical products.  The app does not provide information about whether this was created by orthopaedic surgeons.  The purpose of the app is to provide basic fracture classification and treatment recommendations for a variety of common injuries of the skeleton.  The overall organization is simple, with the option to choose fractures based on a skeleton, list, or search feature.  We like that many fractures are included and that basic information about common classification systems and general treatment principles are provided.  We also really appreciate the abundant references and pubmed links to support the recommendations and information given.  However, fracture classification apps are typically improved with images and diagrams which we could not find in this app.  Adding images would improve the functionality and educational utility dramatically.
