HandDecide is part of the Orca Health collection of apps that provides information for patients about various orthopaedic conditions.  Like the entire “decide” series, the user interface, graphics, and interactive anatomy modules are superb and allow the user to learn about hand anatomy in different regions of the hand and wrist while rotating, flexing, and zooming in on the images.  The conditions covered in this app include carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist injury, TFCC, thumb base arthritis, de Quervain’s tendonitis, skier’s thumb, ganglion cyst, mallet finger, dupuytren’s contracture, trigger finger, and flexor tendon injury.  Consistent with the entire line of apps, each disease includes a plethora of xray, MRI, and CT imaging with appropriate annotations demonstrating normal and pathologic conditions.  Video and audio recordings are also included to narrate the text and demonstrate surgical procedures. Like the other apps in this series, users can search for medical providers that treat these conditions and this particular app expands the selection to include a physical therapist, plastic surgeon, and manicurist.  Overall, HandDecide is a very impressive addition to the Orca Health “decide” series and has the potential to greatly improve patient education and comprehension about orthopaedic hand conditions.  At only $1.99 this application is a great value for the amount of information included.
