For physicians and therapists in a rehabilitation related domain it is virtually impossible to keep up to date with recent advances by reading all relevant research papers in the hundreds of journals available.

The smartphone application MediGrip is aimed to help physicians, therapists and researchers to keep up to date with the most relevant and interesting results in research.

MediGrip covers fields such as rehabilitation medicine, physical medicine and physiotherapy, sports medicine, exercise physiology, rheumatology and orthopedic surgery.

MediGrip essentially is a tear off calendar, that is available on your smartphone.

This tear off calendar provides a headline, a commentary and links of recent research papers on a daily basis.
