Apps for Occupational Therapy: Find Apps for Your Practice area

By Stephanie Yamkovenko

Update: The apps database was updated on 9/18/2013 with 150 new apps!

A smartphone with apps.If you feel like everyone has been talking about apps lately, it could be partly due to smartphone ownership in the U.S. reaching 61% of mobile phone users in 2013.1 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.
