Step By Step Guide on How to Use Treatment Pad

In this article we demonstrate how to use all of the features that Treatment Pad has to offer and answer some frequently asked questions.

Getting Started – The Split Screen Layout

Launching the app on your iOS device, will present you with the split screen layout.

You will be able to automatically align your photographs according to facial markers such as the nose or eyes by pressing the face icon to the left of the bar. Once pressed, a grid will appear indicating the alignment has been made.

At anytime you can save your progress on the top right.

Patient Albums

The ‘recents’ tab at the bottom bar, will bring up an album selection view for you to either search for or create a new album for your patient.

In the case of an existing patient, select their album name.

Advanced Filters

By selecting the menu to the left of the bar, you will see a number of other functions Treatment Pad has to offer.

By default the background is removed from your photographs, this can be toggled on and off here.

You may also wish to filter the photos for a particular orientation or arrange according to their modification date.

Lock Function

To focus in on a particular area of the photograph, the pictures can be locked into position. This will allow you to zoom with both pictures in tandem. Use the lock icon on the right bar to activate this feature.

Adding A Template

You can add your own branding to your edited photographs using pre-made custom templates. Long press on the stamp icon to load 5 different pre-made templates.

If you do not have any pre-made templates, or if you would like to edit your existing templates, this can be done pressing the arrow button on the top right.

Select ‘Template Editor’, where you will be met with the ability to edit your custom template. You can change the font, colour, add blurs, boxes, bring items to the foreground or background and upload an image onto the photograph, such as a company logo.

Once complete, save your progress. This will be saved to your dedicated template — the number is indicated on the bottom right corner.

Using the Grid Function

On the main screen, you have the ability to micro-adjust your photographs should you need to. Select the grid icon on the right hand bar to bring up a grid for fine tweaking as required.

Changing Orientation

Treatment Pad allows you to display your photographs in both portrait and landscape. To change between the two, select the icon to the far right of the bar.

You can create a custom templates to suit different orientations if needed.

Saving Your Photographs and Videos

The edited photographs with optional custom templates can be saved as split screen images, or as individual photographs or video animations. By default, the media will be stored locally on your device under the patient’s dedicated album. You can also access your content in the ‘Photos’ app on your iOS device.

Watermark Removal

The ‘created with treatment pad’ watermark can be removed by tapping on it and following the steps, an internet connection is required for this portion to communicate with Apple’s servers.

Using the Camera

With the upgraded version of the application, you are able to take accurate real time photographs. To compare a previous photo to the real time camera, select the before picture on the left and press camera icon in centre.

The algorithm will use the camera on your device to analyse the patient’s face and orientation to the camera. A live feed of the camera angle will be displayed, helping to give you accurate guidance before you take your picture.

Once your photographs have been taken, press ‘close’ on top left of the screen to return to the split screen view.
