Nirtal Shah, the Physical Therapist who developed
Curovate, faced challenges with his
own recovery after surgery
Nirtal Shah,a physical therapist, developed Curovate with 20 years of clinical experience, evidence-informed protocols and feedback from hundreds of patients.
Since Curovate was released in 2016 it has been used by over 10,000 people around the world for ACL injury or surgery, knee replacement and hip replacement.
With just your phone Curovate can measure your knee and hip bending and straightening. This measure is crucial after ACL, knee replacement and hip replacement.
Curovate helps with your recovery journey by providing you with your progress, achievements and friendly reminders to keep you motivated and on track.
Curovate provides a full rehabilitation program conveniently available through your mobile device in the comfort of your home. Choose your injury or surgery and your graft site for ACL (patellar tendon, hamstring tendon, non-surgical or pre-surgical) and your total hip replacement approach (anterior, posterior, lateral or no hip precautions) or a total knee replacement.
The app contains video guided exercises for every single day of your recovery. What’s even better, the app counts reps and sets for you. No need to write out your exercises or remember what you need to do later. The app will do all of that for you. Curovate provides a customized recovery plan for your specific injury or surgery.
Curovate provides specific weekly goals, along with daily reminders to motivate and keep you on track. All of this will help you daily to stay consistent with your exercises and recover fast!
The app helps you to track your recovery journey and shows daily, weekly and monthly progress to motivate you. If you miss a few days of exercises, don’t worry! Curovate lets you easily resume your recovery and will guide you every step of the way.
Using the app feels like someone is doing every single exercise with me. I check my progress in the app and this motivates me to keep going. I have had two ACL surgeries and the second time, with the Curovate app, I was much more motivated!
I have had ACL reconstruction on both knees. My recovery the second time was much easier thanks to Curovate, which kept me on track with my physio and doing my exercises safely.
Curovate is a wonderful tool for ACL rehab! I will pass this along to my soccer coach. I can't even count how many girls I have played with who have torn their ACL and my peers at school and anyone else I can think of who could benefit from this app. I love it and think it is a wonderful help following ACL reconstruction.
I am a physiotherapist at the University of Toronto and I have used Curovate with my patients after ACL injury and surgery for the past 2 years. The app has been very useful to guide my patients with their daily exercises. The app is also very helpful for me because I no longer need to waste time printing exercise progressions at every session! I highly recommend the app for patients after ACL injury or surgery.
I've found Curovate to be a great resource to suggest to patients when they are not able to return for follow up in clinic, but they still need ongoing rehab following ACL surgery. Curovate gives them clear instructions and exercise progressions specific to where they are at post surgery so that they can continue to progress independently.
