Publisher's description - Nerve Whiz 1.022
Designed by a neuromuscular neurologist at the University of Michigan, Nerve Whiz is a free application for medical professionals interested in learning the complex anatomy of nerve roots, plexuses, and peripheral nerves. Select which muscles are weak, or point to areas of sensory loss, and the application can provide you with distinguishing features and detailed information, complete with relevant pictures and diagrams.
Features â€¢ Nerve and Muscle Charts. This comprehensive inventory of the most clinically relevant muscles in the upper and lower extremities can be sorted by root, trunk, cord, peripheral nerve, action, or muscle name. â€¢ Muscle Localizer. Select muscles as weak or strong, and the application provides a list of possible localizations (root, plexus, or nerve), along with distinguishing features about each. â€¢ Nerve Diagrams. Choose any localization (root, trunk, cord, or nerve), and see a diagram of that nerve in the context of the brachial or lumbosacral plexus. Toggle to â€œMuscle Viewâ€ and the diagram shows you the muscles supplied by your chosen nerve, and from where their innervations arise. â€¢ Sensory Localizer. Touch a picture of an arm or leg and Nerve Whiz suggests localizations with beautiful graphic representations of the sensory distributions of nerve roots, parts of the plexus, and nerves.
NOTE: Nerve Whiz is intended to be an educational tool only. Nerve distributions vary between patients, and central or multifocal processes can mimic focal peripheral lesions. As such, this application should not be relied upon to make clinical decisions.

By Med Student- first year Pretty much surviving anatomy because of this app! It takes a massive amount of information and presents it in every way you may need to know it- sorting by muscle action, groups of muscles innervated by any nerve, branch, cord, trunk, you name it! Makes studying much more efficient and comprehensive. Can`t say thank you enough!!
Great but charts don`t fit.
By iPadmultitasker Very helpful but designed for large screen yet it`s not universal. Please make an iPad version so we don`t have to keep swiping fingers right and left.
Quick and neat
By gburnett A great app for those days when someone comes into the neuro clinic and points to a weird spot that went numb. Plexopathies are finally easy to diagnose! I especially appreciate the efficiency of the design. Designers, please come to my clinic and fix my crappy EMR. Please.
