ORCA MD , the publisher behind many iOS app (SpineDecide ,ShoulderDecide ,KneeDecide ,AgingSpine HD ,FootDecide ,HandDecide), brings ShoulderDecide with a number of new features along with the usual bug fixes. ShoulderDecide app has been update to version 1.4 with several major changes and improvements. App release that improves performance, provides several new options.


ShoulderDecide™ is a new physician-based medical app designed to provide easy access to information, discussion, and current scientifically recommended treatment for common shoulder conditions. The series focuses on both temporary treatment solutions and conditions which may be serious enough for possible surgical remedy. All contributors are speciality-trained MDs with several decades experience and advanced degrees from Stanford, University of Washington, Harvard, and University of Southern California.


The purpose of ShoulderDecide™ is to educate the non-medically trained patient about their shoulder problems. It aims to enhance understanding of common conditions of the shoulder area while answering in an informed, practical guide which conditions may require surgical treatment.


Over the past decades there have been unprecedented strides in both the evaluation and treatment of shoulder conditions.  One of the most spectacular of these is the development and use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This incredible machine has given a level of diagnostic accuracy that was unimaginable in the past; however, MRIs are not flawless.



After you have been referred for an MRI and are exiting the imaging center with image in hand, you are met with a barrage of treatment options that can be overwhelming. For patients suffering from shoulder pain, an effective and timely treatment is crucial to regaining and maintaining a high quality of life, but how can you make sense of so much information?


ShoulderDecide™ presents a valuable guide for patients as they seek to understand and find the most effective treatment for their shoulder problems. The user will scroll through an easy to understand explanation of shoulder anatomy and common conditions accompanied by educational illustrations and clearly translated MRI samples.


The treatments covered are:


Rotator Cuff Tear
Calcific tendinitis
Glenohumeral arthritis
Acromioclavicular arthritis
Proximal Humeral Fractures
Clavicle Fractures
AC Separation
Frozen shoulder
Bicep tendon tears and tendinitis


Orca MD understands that as health insurance co-pay costs rise and the number of qualified doctors decreases, the need to find a clear path to the correct treatment in a more efficient manner is increasingly important. ShoulderDecide™ does just that.


In addition, look for SpineDecide™, currently available, and the future releases of HandDecide™ and FootDecide™.


The ShoulderDecide is now available for $4.99 for iPad owners. The application is designed for use in English language. It weighs in at only 10MB to download. It is highly advisable to have the latest app version installed so that you don`t miss out on the fresh new features and improvements. The current app version 1.4 has been released on 2014-11-27. The Apple Store includes a very useful feature that will check if your device and iOS version are both compatible with the app. Most iPhone and iPad are compatible. Here is the app`s compatibility information: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 4.2 or later.

I miss the older versions when the apps did what they did well I feel the newer versions try to do too much Theyre slow and just take up so much space on my 32gb Air    Tries to be too much
This is a great application very informative and detailed if you are a student or health care professional that treats or is interested in any shoulder related ailments this is a great tool to have I love this application                Amazing Application
Description of possible injuries and recommended treatment is good as well as visuals however the find a specialist function is inadequate For example in Colorado listed specialists are clustered around the front range Ie eastern part of the state with none listed for the western slope       Inadequate specialist listings
Liked some of these apps more than others but now I have to pay a subscription to use them on top of the initial purchase price Sorry not happening Ill just delete them and free up a lot of space You will never see another dollar from me    Now Requires Subscription
I am a massage therapist and this app was perfect for showing my husband how the shoulder works I suffer from a lot of shoulder pain and it has been really hard to explain to my husband which muscles to massage but this apps gives a perfect view of the muscles and how they work when you are throwing or lifting something and I can point out to my husband where to give me a massage Great app and good use of the iPad                Wow
If you are a pt or med student looking to gain a greater appreciation of the shoulder this app is not for you No relevant information about anatomy and limited ability to view the shoulder when performing motions This is shoulder information at its most basic leveland I cant emphasize most enough       Not what I expected
I love that you can plug this app into the big screen This way you dont have to crowd around a smaller screen to see all the content                Plug In To The Big Screen

I love the video out feature Not many apps have it and it is especially helpful in a medical app                Video Out Coolest Thing Ever
As a therapist for 17 years Im happy I now have more tools to share the complexity of the body with my patients ShoulderDecide is an excellent app for getting an idea for how the muscles of the shoulder interact It shows you the complex interaction of rotator cuff muscles and the large superficial muscles and can play a nice little moving animation to show how they work togetherBy focusing on just the scapula clavicle and humerus you get a picture of these complex interactions The relationship of the back the neck and nervescirculation are not addressed but are with other toolsGreat jobEd Kaine OT RFTPublisher of Functional Therapy Magazine                Excellent tool for focusing on the rotator cuff
There is a lot of content on this app I like how it is organized so I dont have to spend hours looking for something specific on the web                Tons of Content

I love this I had a rotator cuff tear back in the day and this explains it perfectly                Visual masterpiece
I have a problem with my shoulder and this really helps me understand exactly whats wrong Good 3d models too                This is pretty awesome
Really nice animations of shoulder movement and you can see different layers of anatomy performing the movements Also impressed with all the animations and videos that show various shoulder related conditions                Impressive visuals and content
I didnt know what video out was at first but then someone showed me how to plug my iPad into the TV screen and I love it Now a few of us can look at it and I can use it in class for a presentation                Great Video Out
