The health care goes slowly smartphone. Heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and body temperature, blood sugar levels in the blood. All this can & # 39; follow mobile technology: if the performance is not good – it's time to see a doctor. Some promise tools to prevent stroke in a few hours. Such devices are either attached to the body or worn as a bracelet or watch, and all health indicators are shown by & # 39; smartphone app.
All together, earned the name & # 39; mHealth – Mobile health.
How does mobile health
Electrocardiogram for 10 seconds on a smartphone. And the pulse, frequency and deep breathing, and temperature. All this prevents Cardiomo small device to fit under the breast. All data is transmitted continuously to the smartphone. If f & # 39; blow some indicators are normal, Cardiomo advise on how to normalize their status, for example. If the status is critical, the device asks to go to the doctor, and information about the health of the person sent to relatives.
"One day calling my mom. She complained that its third day of & # 39; pain & # 39; head, can not get out of bed and is sick. I asked X & # 39; timgħidlek, I did not. He says he did not want remove me. This cancel me, and then I thought about the device to remove the medical information and present it in & # 39; a form understandable by the app on your smartphone. Finally, we Cardiomo. it means taking Cardiogram of & # 39; high quality, respiratory rate, skin temperature and shows on the smartphone. Importantly, is a leading dynamics. For example, if the device sees that the wrist is not the same as usual , is comparing the ECG and advises on how to normalize the pulse or recommend that you consult a doctor. as importantly, if something is wrong, that the family receives a message & # 39; push on their phone, " Roman says Belkin, co-founder & # 39; Cardiomo start up.
The family doctor Yuri Bykov believes that such a device is a good way & # 39; own health. But m & # 39; INIX sure it is accurate.
"I often see on the wrist fitness bracelets patients or smart meters. That's great, if they keep track of their activities to achieve the goal. If, for example, people notice that the pressure or heart rate overcurrent, and will come to me, I'm glad that drew attention to their health. However, in his office, did not think the pressure will show the gadget ", – said Bykov.
Health Future gadgets
The health care will always be linked to mobile technologies. The next stage in the development of & # 39; re Belkin called Health 3.0. For example, people who have used trust your health hospital and doctors – doctors could only decipher the diagnostic results. The patient was unaware x & # 39; is and just do what they say – drink some pills or do certain procedures.
We are now at the stage of Health 2.0 – the patient's health is seeing a doctor – family doctor can & # 39; need to send a specialized doctor.
"Health3.0 closes all specifically on the person and depends on his health. But I understand what to do and what is wrong. The first appeared in the supermarket, where people can monitor their activity. Then more complex means of measuring pulse, blood pressure, EKG, "- said Belkin.
Today there are available download 325 & # 39; & # 39 thousands; mobile health apps. Half of them mentioned with & # 39; other fitness gadgets like bracelets, according to the study Research2 Guidance. These programs worldwide users downloaded 3.7 billion times. But m & # 39; there is no criterion & # 39; efficiency or their choice.
The cutting edge may be the United States. A year ago in the United States adopted a plan for the development of digital health. In the application & # 39; America was seriously considered as a tool to improve public health. For example, the fight against obesity, cardiovascular disease. And the FDA Office for quality of products and medicines – is to test the effectiveness of & # 39; gadgets and make recommendations for their use. Recently the FDA approved the use for medical purposes first tunnel & # 39; Libre FreeStyle blood glucose can not inject for diabetics. The unit gives the option not to do blood during the measurement of blood glucose level, but we need to verify after every meal. The FDA also issued instructions for use & # 39; Apple Watch in medical purposes.
In Europe in the aging population and increasing background in health care costs, see also the health potential.
The solutions & # 39; MHealth can help identify development & # 39; chronic conditions early through self-diagnosis and remote and facilitate intervention in & # 39; during which. The attention to prevention can & # 39; improve the quality of life and even increase life expectancy by finding new ways to promote "behavior with & # 39; robust", according to "Mobile health of green book "of the European Commission.
According to forecasts of Health on Economic Health, the digital power market will appear more technological solutions for diabetics. Diabetes followed by "obesity" and "depression".
However, in the near future & # 39; unlikely to replace personal electronic medical equipment, said Sergey Mityaev, co-founder and creative director & # 39; Gagadget. At the same time, regular use can & # 39; & # 39 serve as a tool; monitor and prevent serious health consequences.
"The main health problem is that patients go to the doctor, when everything is" running ". Modern Trackers have good reliability know how to count the pulse. New Apple Watch allows to measure ECG. In future, these the devices are even more. their main purpose is to continuously monitor and report indicators (first user, and in the future) when they go beyond the norm. modern Clinics already impossible without computers. It- VIBER all doctors use to send files (a & # 39; monitoring results, analysis, and others), "- said Mityaev.
