A research group based at KEMRI-Wellcome Trust – Kenya and Oxford University has developed a free smartphone app for training health workers called “LIFE” which was launched during the Kenya Paediatric Association 2019 annual conference in Mombasa, Kenya.

The Life-saving Instruction for Emergencies (LIFE) smartphone app uses interactive 3D simulations of life-threatening emergencies to train healthcare workers to save lives. The simulations take place in a virtual 3D hospital where users have to

The US had seen the launch of DFree, a wearable connected health monitor that uses an ultrasonic sensor to alert users to a full bladder.

Changes in bladder size are monitored via a sensor secured to the abdomen with medical tape. A receiver then clips to the wearer’s belt. The device can track the progression of bladder movements and predicts urination timing using a patented algorithm. It sends data to an iOS app which can be set to alert when the wearer's bladder is full to a chosen threshold

Apple Announces CareKit

Apple have just announced a new open source framework to allow developers to build healthcare apps that use the 6 CareKit modules.

The modules are:

  • Care Card: this module manages task that a patient needs to perform as part of their treatment such as taking a medication or changing a wound dressing.
  • Symptom and Measurement Tracker: this module helps patients evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment plan and manages tasks such as assessing symptoms through things like pain scales and also allow

Proteus Digital Health have announced that the FDA has agreed to review it's "smart pill" that combines a schizophrenia medicine with tiny digestible sensor. When the pill reaches the stomach the pill sends a digital signal to a wearable patch that is plastered to the patient's skin. The patch then relays the signal (and combines it with other data collected by sensors on the patch such as heart rate and movement) to the patient's mobile phone. This information can then be sent by the phone to

Trackers by Richard MacManus

3301404111?profile=RESIZE_180x180

Richard MacManus (the founder of the tech website ReadWriteWeb) has written a great book about self-tracking for health called "Trackers". The book is now available for Kindle and iTunes. I'd highly recommend the book for anyone interested in mHealth and self-tracking - Richard writes in a very easy to read style and the book covers a lot of interesting cases of using tech for tracking your health.

You can read more about the book on his website: http://ricm.ac/trackers/

Apple has finally announced the new Apple Watch (previously thought to be called the iWatch by many). The product appears to be a unique wearable device that combines as-yet unrevealed sensor technology that connects with the wearer’s skin, an advanced pressure-sensitive display and novel hardware controls such as the “digital crown” navigation tool.

The user interface has been designed from the ground-up and only vaguely resembles the standard iOS interface. The circular bubbles on the home-sc

6 Steps to mHealth Success

Earlier this year I launched a methodology for planning mHealth projects called (I hope not too grandly) ‘6 Steps to mHealth Success’. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback, and I thought it might be worthwhile to explain the thinking behind it.

 What are the '6 Steps to mHealth Success'?

The ‘6 Steps’ are intended to provide a rational, top-down approach:

  1. Identify a viable opportunity – is there a real problem or compelling event to address?  How much would an mHealth solution

Apple Preparing HealthKit Rollout

Apple has been discussing how its "HealthKit" service will work with health providers at Mount Sinai, the Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins as well as with Allscripts, a competitor to electronic health records provider Epic Systems, people familiar with the discussions said.

While the talks may not amount to anything concrete, they underscore how Apple is intent on making health data, such as blood pressure, pulse and weight, available for

Can your phone improve your mood?

3301421156?profile=RESIZE_180x180Earlier this year some research was carried out, which reduced aggressive behaviour in young offenders by manipulating their perception of ambiguous facial expressions.   On the back of this, a new app has been developed called HappyPlace which aims to combat low mood by making sense of facial expressions.

 

“Past research has suggested that depression may be partly caused or maintained by biased ways of thinking, particularly around the processing of ambiguous faces. Consider walking down the s
