After a knee injury to the ACL or anterior cruciate ligament you need physical therapy for rehabilitation exercises. Our app was designed by a physical therapist with 17 years of experience working with athletes and non-athletes after ACL injury, surgery or ACLS and those who rehabilitate their knees without surgery. The physical therapist understands the challenges that occur after ACL tear or rupture and after orthopaedic surgery. This is why the app provides simple video guided exercises for each stage of recovery to help relieve pain, restore mobility, increase strength and eventually resume normal workouts and sports. This app provides the right rehab designed by a physio using research and clinical experience to help recover after an ACL injury.
This ACL app has the following features:
-Video guided daily exercises for ACL, ACLS (for both a hamstring and patellar tendon graft used for reconstruction of the ACL) or no surgery injury rehabilitation
-Guidance through 6 months of rehab for your knee injury
-Daily, weekly and monthly progress tracking after ACL rupture, injury and or surgery
-The correct strength, stretching, balance, mobility, and sport specific exercises and workouts based on when you injured your ACL or your surgery date
-Exercise demonstrations on video by an exercise pro who also had an ACL injury
-The ability to measure your knee bending and straightening also called your range of motion. Range of motion for your ACL injured knee should eventually equal your uninjured knee
-By simply playing the in app videos the app counts and tracks your reps sets and provides timers for all of your exercises
-View goals for each stage after ACL injury and or surgery
-The ability to connect remotely with a physical therapist or a physiotherapist near you through Virtual PT

Curovate helps patients after an ACL rupture or injury and or after an ACL surgery (ACLS). Undergoing a major knee surgery can be stressful especially after an ACL rupture and this is the best app to help you rehabilitate and return you your prior level of function, physical activity and sports. Often the ACL is injured or ruptured during sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, American football or any other sports that involve cutting, pivoting and quick changes in direction. The rehabilitation following an ACL rupture lasts 6 months and most people do not return to sports until 9 months after their ACL surgery. During this time physical therapy or physiotherapy for rehab is absolutely essential to recover from this injury. Physical therapy usually consists of reducing pain, limiting swelling, instructions on how to use crutches and how to return to normal walking, daily and weekly exercises to restore knee range of motion, strength, balance, improve sports specific functional movement patterns and a gradual return to sports. Curovate is an app designed by a physiotherapist who has worked with patients after this major surgery and wants to help patients recover and return to their prior level of function. Curovate is an ACL app that starts right from day 1 of your injury or surgery and helps you through all of the necessary steps to recover. Another unique feature we have added is the ability to have a virtual appointment with a physical therapist to seek advice and guidance after your surgery or injury. We strongly recommend that a physical therapist or a physiotherapist help you through this rehabilitation journey to help alleviate your knee pain and ensure that you are ready to progress from one stage to the next.
