  • add important contact information including who to contact in an emergency and your physicians
  • understand common medical terms relevant to stroke
  • learn more about modifiable and non-modifiable stroke risk factors
  • find helpful information about the physical, emotional, and cognitive conditions of stroke
  • improve their rehabilitation through video instruction
  • find a support group
  • special sections for “Am I having a stroke?” and “Send help message with my location”.

The app was developed through a collaboration with National Stroke Association, The State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate Medical Center, City University of New York (CUNY), and The Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health.”

Lockitron

Lockitron
developed by Apigy Inc


Allows networking with other people like me / Family / FriendsSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilities

English

Cost: Free, the lock is £63.37 [approximately €90.14, $99.00]
Allows a door (when fitted with a Lockitron lock) to be unlocked without the need for a key.
“Knock, knock, who’s there? Sometimes it’s someone you’d like to let into your home – say a friend, family member or caregiver. But it’s tough to get to the door. Perhaps you want a plumber, repair person, or other helper to be able to come in when you’re out. Or you would like to avoid having to fumble for your keys when you get home. Now there’s a gadget designed to make your life a little easier. It’s called a ‘smart lock’. Visitors can use their smartphones to gain access to your home. Many of these new lock systems allow you to send a ‘virtual key’ to anyone you choose. Most models retrofit to an existing deadbolt lock, but others require that your door’s lock be replaced. … The ‘Lockitron’ goes right over the deadbolt on the inside of the door. It offers keyless entry. You lock and unlock your door with just a finger tap, and you can grant access to anyone you’d like, using the app. It can also provide keyless entry with the iPhone 4S or 5. It costs $179.” ‘Cool Gadgets: Smartphone-Powered Door Locks’, ALS Association, USA | http://bit.ly/1L5Ezar
