Health and Technology: the Smartphone as Center Monitoring Our Health

Our mobile phones are set to headend devices to more and more areas, and health is one of the most interesting emerging fields both when developing apps and create hardware solutions. In this sense, there are numerous projects of accessories to monitor our health with our smartphone, We show you a selection of the most interesting and promising.

Asthma at home

In order to control asthma and to track the of iSonea they have released the AirSonea device, which He recorded the sounds of airway through the neck. The control is carried out in conjunction with the AsthmaSense app, which provides a result after their analysis and can share it by email to our doctor.

Blood pressure

We have already had occasion to analyze http://www.xataka.com/analisis/probamos-el-tensiometro-de-withings in detail this simple device of Withings, a brand that already has many accessories from control of our health. In this case it’s a blood pressure monitor, i.e., a device that allows us to determine the blood pressure and be able to register it with our iOS device, to which is connected by bluetooth. The device costs 129,95 EUR and you can buy from their official website.

An ultrasound in its simplest

Ultrasounds are a method of imaging not invasive that is used in many cases and has evolved to use with our smartphone, MobiUS SP1 hand, resulting in a practical and more economical than the traditional Ultrasound method. It is of a probe and transducer in which they are and processed images, which may be transferred to your smartphone by wireless or cable.

Observing our skin well closely

FotoFinder is a set of lenses (20 x) that allows to view in detail the findings in the skin. The accessory has of 6 LEDs light polarized and unpolarized light six and a button to select the desirability of quickly. It is charged via a USB port and offers a battery of up to 8 hours.

It works in conjunction with the app Handyscope, which captures both as stored images per patient, whose tab is only available through the application, which has the encrypted store. There is also the FotoFinder Hub platform to share and discuss cases in community. The device is available only for various models of iPhone for 655 euros on the official website.

Our heart monitored 24 hours

There are patients at higher risk of heart disease is suitable for those who having watched the heart. This purpose was launched CopCar, a device built into a shirt that allows evaluating the State cardiologic real-time alerting to a crisis to have integration with emergency services.

Thus, it is a sensorizada t-shirt that is synchronized with your smartphone, so if CopCap detects an urgent anomaly (arrhythmia, heart attack, etc.) is generated a direct warning to the emergency services. All this is integrated in the system itself ECG Brain, It will send the data of the patient along with the alert.

What lies ahead

As we have seen in some previous cases, as well as a few months ago with a proposal for the detection of parasites, these devices that work together with a smartphone often replace more expensive equipment (saving the differences in the data). Therefore, many of these projects are focused on being an alternative in developing countries.

It is the case of the chip developed by a team of physicians of Columbia University in collaboration with other institutions. It is a system that connected to the smartphone, could replace the usual method (ELISA) with regard to the diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases. Is connected to the jack, audio and will scan a drop of blood for the results to be displayed in a mobile phone app.

Another disease which, unfortunately, is topical is the Diabetes, which requires control of the sugar (glucose) blood constant by the patient. It is what devised the ImasD Valencia (to later pass into the hands of INEURON) with its smartwatch imasD Health, which would measure this parameter in a way non-invasive and include functions such as alert in case of hypoglycemia (blood sugar too low). As the CopCam, it also integrated the call to the emergency room with the sending of data to attendees.
