Dermofit is an innovative new smartphone app, devised by a team of researchers and engineers led by professor Jonathan Rees over at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, that is designed to make it easier than ever for doctors, nurses and medical students in training to go about detecting early stage skin cancer.

What's great about this particular app is that it uses a combination of graphic imagery and text-based informational cues to help medical professionals in training to improve their ability to spot early stage skin cancer.

The Dermofit app is truly an example of the advantages of smartphone technology being applied to the healthcare sphere. The app also helps prevent unnecessary specialist referrals, easing the load on healthcare systems.
