“CORE has set the standard for a clinical exam app. The most striking feature of this app, in addition to the vast collection of tests and videos, is actually the “properties” tab. For every test,data is presented regarding the sensitivity, specificity,likelihood ratio, accuracy and other relevant statistical tests based on primary literature references. These lists are incredibly complete. This is a feature that I have not seen replicated by anyother orthopaedic reference.”

“CORE app is a wonderful reference for many clinicians, including,but not limited to, physical therapists, athletic trainers, orthopaedic surgeons, nurses, primary care physicians, and emergency room physicians. The app is user friendly and easy to navigate. The authors have undoubtedly put many hours of work intothis application and it shows. I would recommend this to all clinicians who perform orthopedic examinations.”

“CORE is a great addition to the burgeoning collection of medical applications…If their first application is any indication, it seems we will have more to celebrate in the future. …excellent application for doing the musculoskeletal portion of the physical exam. ….stress how this is a great medical application for primary care physicians. All primary care physicians know how important a strong musculoskeletal physical exam can be, as theyare often the first line for presenting symptoms.”
The physical exam is an important part of the overall evaluation, and maneuvers/special tests are often used to evaluate and diagnose the patient.
