This e-book is designed to provide you as a physiotherapy student or practitioner with an extensive, but easy to use overview about basic assessment techniques and special tests that are being used in physiotherapeutic assessment, organized by body part.
 At the same time, we are providing you with the latest evidence regarding different orthopedic tests and we are giving advice about their usability in practice according to our Clinical Value Matrix, similar to what you might know from Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Our goal with this product is to make your life as a therapist or student as easy as possible. Therefore, all assessment techniques and special tests we cover are described in a few words, illustrated with a photo in starting and end position and more importantly: redirecting you directly to the respective video on our YouTube channel, so you can watch how it should be performed (by a click on the photo)! All references we provide are clickable and will direct you to the respective research paper on Pubmed.

At last, this e-book has to be seen as a work in progress. On the one hand, our YouTube channel Physiotutors is constantly growing as new videos are added each week and on the other hand, new research is published, which might impact the clinical value of the different orthopedic tests covered in this e-book.

Therefore, if you have bought this e-book, you will automatically receive an e-mail notification as soon as a new version is released!

We would have wished to have such an e-book ourselves when we started as students and we sincerely hope that you benefit from it as much as possible! Thanks for following us on social media and for your support by buying this e-book!

    Great book, well structured and detailed. Works perfectly on my android-phone. I’m a physical therapist and i’m very happy with this tool. It helps me to save a lot of time (and nerves) and increases quality of my therapy.

    If you’re looking for a in depth yet easy to use tool for assessments all around the body, this e-book is excellent. The feature that allows you to easily navigate to assessments at any joint allows you to quickly double check an assessment technique, useful for both revision and practical application.

    Fab book. As stated in other reviews a lot of work has gone behind it and still being updated.
    Clear with links to informative videos; evidence based. Brilliant for a student or practising physio.
    Would give 5 stars if three (instead of two) licences granted as would like to use on phone, ipad and imac.

    A really very meaningful and worthwhile investment this book.
    One notices that the authors have put a lot of effort into the tests and have also tried very hard to underline them scientifically.
    Thank you very much for this great work.

    This is an amazing resource for students who have an intermediate knowledge of orthopedics pathologies and assessments. I am an athletic training student and this book has been a huge help for me in my education. It is relatively easy to use and the explanations of the special tests are clear and articulate. Another huge plus is the lifetime access to updates. Currently the book is in version 3 and the content has expanded exponentially. I am very excited to see the continuation of this book and its content and I absolutely recommend the purchase if you are interested in orthopedic assessment techniques.

    80€ might seem expansive for a PDF, but the amount of work behind it will show you wrong for sure ! This is the ultimate book to learn the more accurate tests and add them in your assessment routine !

    Great product! Works perfectly on my computer and phone.
    The Physiotutors channel and now their e-book are helping me through my degree more than any other textbook or website.
    So helpful to have all the assessments in a simple layout with quick access to the supporting literature and demonstrations!
