Abstract
Numerous mobile platform applications (apps) specifically aimed at the medical community are currently available on smartphones and tablet computers. These apps have revolutionised the way information can be stored and accessed. They provide the surgeon with tools to assess and store clinical information about the (patient could be her also) patients, both in the outpatient clinic and the operation theatre. Arthropaedia has reviewed a large number of such apps and short-listed the top 5 apps for the joint replacement surgeon. These include CCJR Mobile, Patient Records Doctor on GO-T, Goniometer Pro, Pocket Physio, and CORE Clinical Orthopaedic Exam. Although the list is not comprehensive, the apps are chosen based on their user rating, the total number of user downloads and the usefulness of the app to the joint replacement surgeon.
