Publisher's description - HandDecide 1.0
Welcome to HandDecide™!
HandDecide 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 hand and wrist conditions. HandDecide goes beyond all previous Orca apps in its introduction of full 3D anatomical motion simulation.
VIEW hand and wrist 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 hand and wrist 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.
The treatments covered in HandDecide are:
Dupuytren’s Contracture Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Wrist Injury Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex Thumb Base Arthritis DeQuervain’s Tendonitis Skier’s Thumb Ganglion Cyst Trigger Finger Flexor Tendon Injury Mallet Finger
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.

Totally appreciated the 3D rendering. It`s not that easy to work up something so detailed about anatomy.
Wish I Had This for My Pre-Op Discussions
This app is perfect. I`ve had surgery for carpal tunnel and this app would`ve been perfect to have during my pre-op discussions. Perfect visual aide. I bought it just for the 3D models. Absolutely a must have app
Helps Me As A Med Student
I`m a med student and this app is totally helping me understand the anatomy of the hand in better detail. Also the xrays and videos are extremely informative.
