Better Health – The Growing App Frontier

by Melissa Crooks Tech Writer
Medicine has been one of the first industries to totally embrace mobile app development as a functional tool. The medical community as a whole has sought out top app development companies to design phone apps that have increasingly taken over many of the routine medical tests and functions that had been the responsibility of a doctor, a nurse, or the patient.

The diversity of the iPhone app development and Android app development repertoire for medicine has seen remarkable growth and ingenuity in just the last five years. Mobile app developers have created phone apps that routinely monitor and report health conditions for the patient and physician. The results have shown that this phone app development has resulted in an increased level of health and a faster treatment than was ever possible before.

Medical research, science, and app development professionals have developed extremely sophisticated methods of dealing with disease and even preventing the debilitating or deadly consequences of most disease that are known.

The following are two functioning apps for medicine that have served as a springboard for future Android application development and iPhone application development.

1) TENS for Back Pain

The Journal of the American Medical Association estimates that 80 percent of the world will suffer from some form of back pain during their life. The instance of back pain that is long lasting and debilitating is higher in countries where manual labor is most common.

Top app development companies and medicine have developed a treatment that relieves the pain associated with chronic back injury that does not require a physician or a physical therapist.

The phone app comes in two forms. One is for external treatment and the other is for internal treatment. Both rely on the efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation to alleviate pain.

The app is directly connected to the TENS device. The TENS device produces a series of electrical signals that counteract the pain. The frequency and amplitude of the pain reducing electric signal can be adjusted for individual preference or the extent of the pain.

The electrical probes are surgically implanted in the interior method of pain control.

The combination of an app and therapy provide portable treatment for anyone in any location. The device can prevent addiction to pain drugs.

2) Gene Modification

Some diseases like cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s Disease, and sickle cell disease are the result of a malfunction in a single gene.

Manipulated changes in the structure of DNA using clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats have been established as a cure for disease that result from a single malfunctioning gene. The process requires the insertion of a microscopic nano-machine that cuts out the defective gene and replaces it with the correct gene sequence.

The surgical method requires guiding the CRISPR device to the defective cell region with a single frequency of blue light. The surgical process can take weeks.

An app has been developed that guides the device from a phone so that an injection of the tiny machines is all that is needed to produce a cure for life threatening and severely debilitating disease.

The majority of physicians have adopted an app that allows a face to face meeting with patients who cannot visit the doctor due to distance or infirmity.

The future of medicine is in app development. Apps can monitor disease more efficiently, deliver drugs when needed, and remind people to take their medicine as prescribed. The benefit of app development is predicted to reduce the cost of medical care and make medicine more widely available to all people.
