Reviews from Around the Web:

ESPN:
“Broadly educating players along with their families and coaches to help prevent overuse injuries in young throwers.” Stephania Belle - ESPN

IMedicalApps:
“This app is designed by leaders in the field of orthopedic sports medicine. The content is very well researched and presented in an easy-to-use format. This app can help medical professionals, athletes, and their families protect against elbow injury.”

Top Ortho Apps:
“Overall, the app has a very high production quality and includes important information from leading surgeons in the field of throwing injuries. They estimate a 60% reduction in throwing injuries if used properly.”

Los Angeles Times:
“Wilk said the dangers of overuse can be found in a simple equation: "It's pretty obvious that if you throw a lot, and you throw when you're fatigued, and you throw hard all the time, and you don't have recovery and don't do exercises, you're going to get hurt," he said. "If you don't get hurt, you're in a really small minority."
