35 Mobile Health Innovations

From Fat-Burning Mobiles to Anonymous STD Assessment Apps

— May 10, 2013 — Lifestyle
Mobile phones have come a long way in keeping us healthy and these mobile health innovations are testament to that. With more people worried about their health than ever before, quick and easy solutions are becoming increasingly important.

Today’s rapidly improving processing power means that our mobile health solutions are growing more powerful and diverse every day. Tools like interactive exercise apps and mobile diabetes kits work to handle small everyday health needs. Even major events can be handled with disease and concussion detecting apps.

With consumers becoming increasingly concerned about their well-being, healthcare is being shifted from hospitals to homes. In addition, the rapidly aging population in many countries demands a shift towards efficient, technology-based solutions. The increasing adoption of smartphone technology means that mobile health solutions will increasingly become the norm.
