Stryker‘s Orthopaedics division has released two iPad apps to help surgeons explain procedures to their patients and learn about the products that the company offers.
From the company announcement:
Stryker Flipchart is a patient education tool designed to help orthopaedic specialists explain a hip, knee or shoulder replacement procedure to patients who are either scheduled for surgery or contemplating total joint replacement. It contains overviews of a normal joint, arthritic joint and replaced joint, using graphics and x-rays. Surgeons are also able to customize and annotate the images to support patient discussion.
OpTech Live is a guide to Stryker Orthopaedics’ surgical protocols with a friendly touch screen interface. The app includes information about Stryker products ranging from extremities to hip, knee, sports medicine and trauma.
