Publisher's description - FootDecide 1.1
Welcome to FootDecide™!
FootDecide is Orca’s newest medical app in the Decide Series. It is a physician-based medical app designed to provide easy access to information, discussion, and current scientifically recommended treatment for common foot and ankle conditions. FootDecide goes beyond all previous Orca apps in its introduction of full 3D anatomical motion simulation.
VIEW foot and ankle motion in 360 degrees. EXPLORE anatomy layer by layer from outer skin to muscle to bone. PINPOINT your medical condition in a range of common foot and ankle conditions through detailed MRI scans. LEARN about treatment processes, and LOCATE specialists near you in easy to understand listings. Then SHARE your findings with friends and family through the app’s email feature or video out capability, which allows any Orca app to be connected to a larger screen or monitor.
The purpose of Orca’s series of Decide apps is to educate the non-medically trained patient about their medical problems. The Decide Series aims to enhance understanding of common conditions of the body while answering in an informed, practical guide which conditions may require surgical treatment. 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 bodily 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?
The Decide Medical App Series presents valuable guides for patients as they seek to understand and find the most effective treatments for their medical problems. The user can scroll through and examine easy to understand anatomical explanations as well as MRI scans of common conditions.
Orca MD`s Decide 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 University of Southern California.
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. Explore the mobile eHealth solutions offered by Orca MD, and experience the future of healthcare.

I like the animation of the foot walking. It lets me stop the sequence right at the point where I have pain and show it to my Doctor.

I am a dance teacher and have come across many of these injuries as a professional dancer and dance teacher. This app really helps me to show the kids what might be occurring with them and sure enough after they see the doctor I was right.
