Awesome & handy tool!Nov 28, 2011
By M Misturado
This is a great tool for those beginning in the ortho field. The book is a perfect size for fitting into a large scrub or lab coat pocket. The pages are thick and coated, and feel like they could stand up to a lot of abuse. This coating also allows for making notes with a dry erase marker and erasing. (I've tested it!) The only slight negative is the overall thickness of the book. The size is small enough to fit into pockets but the thickness (over an inch) can be a bit cumbersome at times.
Awesome reference for the clinic.Jan 09, 2013
I use this almost everyday in the clinic. I keep it on my desk and it is really easy to look something up without dragging out large textbooks. I would definitely recommend this, especially for new grads!
Ortho NotesDec 05, 2012
These notes are a good reference tools and are very helpful when studying for exams. Great addition to my reference materials.
Great, quick and handy!Oct 08, 2012
I have been a Physical Therapist for 12 years now and this has helped me "brush up" on my rusty brain. It is very easy and simple to use (that even a caveman can do it! :) The tabs at the bottom of the book surely help make it a lot easier to navigate, and the tabs are as follows: Alerts/Alarms, shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand, spine, hip, knee, ankle & foot. Each tab includes bone and muscular anatomy, basic kinesiology / kinematics, special tests, pain referral patterns, vascular innervation to name a few. The book itself is about 1 inch thick and about 5 inches in height so you may find it difficult to put in your pocket. It surely fits in my coat and still with some room for my pen, goniometer and neuro hammer.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to students, therapists, and doctors who want a quick guide without having to carry Magee :)
Not what I expectedAug 22, 2012
By Canadian Reader
This book is well-made and easy to follow, but it's not what I was hoping it would be.
I was looking for a concise guide to evaluating various joints, but this books seems to be more of a compendium of information about joints and how to test them. In terms of doing a quick screen of a joint to evaluate for a vague patient complaint, I don't know how helpful this will be. If you are looking for a guide to every possible way to evaluate every part of a joint, this may be what you're looking for (eg. maybe on an Ortho rotation).
