Technology is defined to ease our lives. We continue to redefine our lives every day consciously and most of the times subconsciously, with the very use of the variety of mobile apps in our smartphones.
A country as big and diverse like India with 300 million smartphones but with poor health record where 5.2million dies each year from various diseases, we must realize that there still lies some untrodden tech path yet to be walked upon. The path of health apps which will bring the health in your pocket via same mobile phones. Let’s just see how your very own smartphone can keep you healthy expanding its role beyond a tool to seek the curious bliss achieved from social media updates, likes, shares and comments.
MyTherapy (free for iOS and Android) is an outstanding health app. It helps you to setup your medication schedule with the huge medication database. It reminds you to take your medication and urges you to confirm with a single tap whether you’ve taken it or skipped it. You can set other features by quickly entering necessary information’s and thereby keeping a track on your mood swings, blood sugar, blood pressure, body weight. The app provides a wide range of measurements for all conditions (diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety, depression, hypertension, multiple sclerosis etc.
Another important feature is its health report which collects all your activity information and presents it in a printable format which provides an opportunity to understand your health’s progress and what more needs to be done about it. This can be shared with your doctor too for a better treatment plan.
Most of the young working population in India stays in different cities, away from their families. MyTherapy allows adding family members and friends to keep a track on the medication adherence of your loved ones even when you are not present near them. This is the best feature for all those whose old parents are not staying with them.
