Apps for Occupational Therapy: Find Apps for Your Practice area
By Stephanie Yamkovenko
If you feel like everyone has been talking about apps lately, it could be partly due to smartphone ownership in the U.S. doubling in the past 2 years—reaching 44% of mobile phone users in 2011.1 Although many people use apps for entertainment or personal use, it is becoming more common for health care professionals to use apps in the clinic. AOTA found in a recent poll that more than half of occupational therapy practitioners are using apps in the clinic.
We put together this comprehensive list of apps for occupational therapy practitioners, separated by practice area. Click on your practice area and find apps that you can use in the clinic with your clients (login required). We provide a description, price, and link to get the app on your device.
This database will be updated with new apps, so keep checking back. We also need your help with finding the best apps for your colleagues. If you have a favorite app that is not on our list, click here and tell us about it.
