Application to improve the health of musicians.
Los músicos se lesionan con frecuencia, debido a la práctica diaria intensiva. Esta aplicación les ayudará a prevenir lesiones a través de consejos sobre lo que tienen que hacer o cambiar cuando sus problemas no se han establecido todavía; cuando empiezan a experimentar la primera molestia, pero los tejidos no han experimentado cambios estables. Con base en la causa, el área afectada y los síntomas presentados por el músico, la aplicación da consejos para tratar de evitar la consolidación de la lesión. La aplicación no realiza ningún diagnóstico; no sustituye al consejo médico. Sólo está tratando, si todavía estamos a tiempo, de poner remedio a un problema que se encuentra en su primera etapa.”

Musicians are often injured due to intensive daily practice. This application will help prevent injuries through tips on what to do or change at early stages of their medical conditions; when they begin to experience the first symptoms, but have not experienced irreversible tissue changes. Based on the cause, the affected area and the symptoms presented by the musician, the application gives advice to try to prevent the consolidation of the injury. The application does not make any diagnosis; nor substitute for medical advice. The app tries, if there is still time, to remedy a problem that is in its first stage.

Verbally

Verbally
developed by Intuary Inc, USA


Improving communicationSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilities

English

Cost: Free

Alternative communication solution for people who have difficulty speaking.

“ ‘Verbally’ is a lesson in economy. Only about 200 English-language words make up about 80% of daily conversations. ‘Verbally’ users see text buttons on the top half of the screen, and a keyboard on the bottom. One tab shows about 50 of the most common words in English; another, a list of common phrases. Users can choose one of the text buttons, or start typing. The app employs predictive text technology to recommend complete words and phrases, based on the first few letters typed. The idea is to squeeze more information on each screen, and reduce the number of steps taken to form a sentence.” MND Association forum, USA | http://bit.ly/N9d3tH

It uses location data to pinpoint where you are, and, using ‘OpenStreet’ data, it tells you what local amenities are accessible nearby. Where appropriate, the listings have contact details from the businesses. You can view the search results in list form, or on a map, depending on what suits you.
