Diabetes management log.

“The ‘WaveSense Jazz’ meter will be the first medical device to connect directly with the Apple iOS platform. A new download cable, demonstrated at the 2010 American Diabetes Association conference, will plug the ‘Jazz’ meter into the phone, so that users will eventually be able to automatically download their glucose data into the app. Visually, and in terms of functionality, it beats the competition hands down, if you ask me. It’s big, clear interface has been upgraded to provide more functionality: super-easy tabs for tagging your readings and making notes on them; graphical views in which important results are brightly highlighted; and the ability to tap any data point on a graph to immediately see details, notes, and tags on that individual result. You can also easily email charts of your results to your doctor or family members in basic CSV file format. Blood glucose results are color-coded, so that the highs and lows pop right out at you, so to speak. My one big gripe to date is the need for manual data entry.” Diabetes Mine, USA | http://bit.ly/bX7qLW

“The first MPT product on the market is BlueStar by WellDoc. You cannot get it in all states. BlueStar is designed for adults 21 or older with type 2 diabetes who are not on an insulin pump and are not pregnant. Your doctor writes a prescription for the service. A pharmacy fills the prescription. Your doctor may prescribe BlueStar directly or may ask your doctor about getting started. Once prescribed, you will download the BlueStar application from your app store. After you download, you will use an access code to register and get started with quick in-product training.
To use the system, you enter information about your treatment plan. The automated system then tells you what to do. For example, if you enter a fasting BG value that is within target range, you will get a positive message that reinforces your treatment plan. BlueStar allows you to send your doctor a summary of your progress before your next visit. Your healthcare team uses the report to learn more about your diabetes and determine any changes to your treatment plan. BlueStar does not provide emergency help.”

Diabetes logbook that allows a user to record and monitor blood pressure, carbohydrate intake, exercise regimes, glucose readings, insulin injections, lab results, medication, pulse, temperature, weight, and other vital statistics.

“With this app, you can easily monitor your blood-glucose measurements. In addition, you can also specify the amount of insulin, and write notes (I’ve set the following notes: Before breakfast; After breakfast; Before lunch; After lunch; Before dinner; After dinner; Bedtime; Night). The app is also suitable for bolusing. The screen is divided into five sections, which can be defined by you. My five are: blood-sugar levels; insulin dosage; statistics; setup; and ‘More’. Glucose values and insulin input are two main menus, with the following input options available: blood-glucose levels; feature quantities; medications; laboratory results; sporting activities; weight; and pump data. You can view all the values in clear statistics in ‘Graphs’. Very nice, too, is that graphs are displayed in the transverse view when the phone is rotated. Values entered can be sent via email, or uploaded to a server. Conclusion: for me, the €5 is absolutely worth the money. This app is very clear, and easy to operate. It is available in German.

Helps to track and record haemophilia-A factor-VIII infusions.

“Having a well-kept record of infusions can help the team at your haemophilia treatment centre get a better picture of how your clotting factor is working. For people on prophylaxis, being able to spot a trend of bleeds can help you and the team develop a plan to prevent them. If you’re using clotting factor on-demand, you might not realise how many bleeds you’ve had in a year, until you see all the data together. Having an infusion log in an electronic format has many benefits. Prophylactic users can log multiple infusions over a span of dates with a few simple clicks. Too busy to log onto your home computer? Record the infusion on your mobile infusion-log app while you’re on the bus (unless you’re the driver). The ‘FactorTrack’ app has an alarm feature that alerts people to take a dose. The alarm can be set for a certain time for each infusion needed. Options include: set days per week (such as Monday, Wednesday, Friday); once a week; every day; or every other day.” Arizona Hemophilia Association, USA | http://bit.ly/MSIHZQ

Helps people with haemophilia track their condition and report progress to their doctor.

The app also allows us to upload photos of bleeds, to be able to watch what they are doing, and gives us information in graph form about my son's annual bleed rate. Finally, all of this information is communicated to my son's doctors, so that they can see what his body is doing, as well as check his adherence to his infusion schedule, without having to be in the office. The only drawback for us is that our pharmacy will not use the app, so that we could take advantage of using it for our monthly refills."

Before, I used three different apps that all worked differently.

Sensor for people who have had an ostomy: keeps the user informed about the contents level of their ostomy bag.
“The winner of the coveted Editor’s Choice award for best new product presented at the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) 2013 Annual National Conference goes to Ostom-i Alert. The Alert is a small sensor clipped to your ostomy pouch that reacts as the pouch fills. It then sends that information directly to your smartphone with a setting you choose personally, such as, “half full, or one third full”. … The totally delightful young inventor, Michael Seres, told me that in England the device has been very useful with non-compliant teenagers who tend to ignore their appliance when it gets too full, thus leading to accidents. I personally imagine using it to alert you if you’re medicated to the point of drowsiness, sleep deeply, or for a loved one with limited communications ability or the beginnings of dementia. The device can also be used in hospitals where medical professionals can safely monitor when your appliance needs emptying.” Broward Ostomy Association (United Ostomy Associations of America, UOAA), Broward Beacon, Fall 2013, p.14 | http://bit.ly/16pp4az

ReSound Smart
App that creates a direct connection between hearing aids and content from some android devices, iphones, ipads, ipod touch, and Apple Watch
“…what’s interesting about GN Resound is that all their wireless hearing aids…can connect to your smartphones and tablets wirelessly, allowing you to hear the tinnitus masker straight into your hearing aid. In fact, it allows you to hear any audio output from your smartphone and tablet through your hearing aid.
The GN Resound LiNX and LiNX2 premium hearing aids can directly connect to your Apple smartphones and tablets and some Android models; other hearing aid models and Android devices currently require either the GN Resound Phone Clip or the GN Resound Mini Mic as a connector.
The Phone Clip functions as a remote control in addition to connecting to your phone, allowing you to easily change the programme function on your hearing aids as well as allowing you to stream music or any other form of audio directly into the hearing aids. The Mini Mic allows you to gain better speech understanding in noisy places by reducing the distance between yourself and the sound source, allowing you to hear the speech more than the noise – similar to a loop system. The Mini Mic can also connect directly to your smart phone or any audio output socket using a wire to stream the sound directly to your hearing aids.
Other hearing aid manufacturers have similar capabilities but most require an additional bluetooth streamer to connect your hearing aids to a smartphone.”

And if it makes even one person more aware, and sends them to a dermatologist, it’s probably worth it.” Blogger on Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) forum, USA | http://bit.ly/P7Uvvt

Cost: Free
App sharing parent and carer experience of caring for children with Tay-Sachs or Sandhoff disease.
“We hope that this app changes the way in which families affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease are able to access information to help in their role as a carer.”

“These are incredibly rare diseases with fewer than ten children born with Tay-Sachs or Sandhoff in the UK each year. Families can feel extremely isolated and we hope that an app that people can use wherever they are will make a real difference to the community and become a key tool for carers in the UK and abroad.”

The app has been designed to work on various mobile device platforms and contains interviews with families affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease about the role of being a carer. There has also been input by the healthcare professionals who support people affected by these rare diseases.”
Daniel Lewi, co-founder CATS Foundation UK, and father of a girl diagnosed with Tay-Sachs. | http://www.cats-foundation.org/blogs/introducing-the-eacademy-for-tay-sachs-sandhoff-disease-app/
