To progress, you can click on a color to see similar colors in the wheel. Once you're happy with your color selection, hover over it to get the rgb color, then send it to me or p…

Physical Therapy Application

Some screenshots from a physical therapy diagnostic web app for a client- it allows physical therapists to run through a series of different physical tests on a patient, then determines what problem areas should be focused on.
