CORE is an acronym for:

Catered to you
On the go

CORE HandTM for the I-phone is an innovative Hand Therapy Exercise Mobile Application designed to enable a clinician to create an individualised hand therapy exercise program to assist their patient’s rehabilitation. The App enables a patient to have their exercise program on the go. It will remind them of their exercises and provides not only the description but also a short video demonstrating the exercise. The clinician is able to personalise the program to the patient, making the App a useful tool to optimise your rehabilitation experience.

The App has been developed for a clinician by a Hand Therapist to provide Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy advice and exercise guidance. It includes splint application and specific exercise program provision. We have worked hard to maximise the ease of use and functionality of the App to make it easier for the clinician and the Patient alike.

Please Note: Until 2015, this app is only available to patients undergoing treatment within the Pulvertaft Hand Unit at Derby. After the initial patient trial period, we aim to increase access to a wider audience. If you have been advised to download the app, your physiotherapist will unlock and create your programme during your first/next session.
