Dissect A Virtual Cadaver With Anatomy & Physiology REVEALED

iPad App - Designed for iPad

Medical students don't always have access to cadavers, certainly not when outside of the classroom. This is a relief to many of us, but it's far from practical for those students trying to study the human body. Anatomy & Physiology REVEALED aims to solve that problem.

Available for the iPad, Anatomy & Physiology REVEALED makes it possible to practice on a virtual cadaver, accurately replicating the cadaver dissection experience.

Five modules are available within the app, allowing for access to the skeletal and muscular systems, nervous system, cardiovascular, lymphatic and respiratory systems, digestive, urinary, reproductive and endocrine systems. There's also room for body orientation, tissues, cells and chemistry.

Many different interactive slides, as well as detailed imagery, videos and animations ensure that this is a comprehensive package for medical students, along with a quiz facility. There's even pronunciation tips for difficult to pronounce terms.

Anatomy & Physiology REVEALED might not be the cheapest of apps, costing $12.99 plus the same price again for extra modules, but for medical students, it should prove very valuable in giving them the extra edge in their studies.

Pre-existing GreatCall users can log into their GreatCall accounts on LiveNurse. The app is available for free but requires a subscription of $3.99 per month.

Good health is important for any adult but for a baby it somehow feels even more vital. As any parent with a baby knows, it's a scary time indeed when a child seems not at their best. Fortunately, popular medical site WebMD has iOS users covered with the release of WebMD Baby.

GreatCall Products: Helping The Vulnerable Stay Safe

Posted by Jennifer Allen on January 18th, 2012

As part of Health & Fitness month, we thought we'd take a quick look at what safety conscious mobile services company, GreatCall, are offering vulnerable iOS users to ensure they feel safer in their own homes.

5Star Urgent Response by GreatCall is one such app that updates the personal safety alarm concept to the iOS era and makes it all the more vital a tool for those who are vulnerable and less able than they used to be.

The app allows its users in times of need to contact a highly-trained Certified Response Agent at the tap of a button. The agent can then identify the user and their location, conference in family or friends to help, access a nurse or provide any extra assistance that may be needed. They can also contact 911 emergency services if need be but GreatCall empathise that the user shouldn't treat the app as a replacement to 911, it's more of a supplement.

Each user has a personal profile that allows the agent to know about things like pre-existing medical condition and emergency contact details so it's a very safe service. There's also the provision of a 24/7 LiveNurse advice service and email functionality.

Ultimately, it's peace of mind for the user and their loved ones. The app is $14.99 and $14.99 a month thereafter.

For other users with medical conditions, GreatCall has provided MedCoach, a free app that helps the user keep track of what medications they need to take and at what time of day.

Simple to use and with regular reminders and alerts, MedCoach will even allow users to connect to their pharmacy when it's time to get a new prescription. Linked to the First DataBank national drug database, it's also possible to look up medication as well as dosage for advice.

MedCoach is out now and it's free to download.

MotherKnows is a Pocket Pediatrician

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Apple likes to boast that their products allow us to connect to each other in fantastic new ways. It's a tall claim to say the least. However, what stronger connection could there be than the one between parents and their children? The MotherKnows app is trying to help prove Apple right by giving parents a new way to monitor their child's development and more easily be prepared for medical emergencies.

Working in conjunction with the MotherKnows website, the app stores all sorts of health records like growth charts, medication lists, graphic displays of immunizations and other information collected directly from doctors and regularly updated, all on an iPhone. This is particularly useful for quickly providing places likes schools and camps with anything they may need to know regarding a child health-wise. Parents can use the app for little tasks like scheduling appointments and for more long-term tasks like tracking their child's progress. Parents can even create milestones like "first steps" and take a picture to go alongside it.

Although the app can sync with one's MotherKnows account when accessing data one doesn't need to purchase an account in order to use the app. MotherKnows is currently available for free on the App Store.

Store Medical Information Easily - and Save Lives - With MedAssist

Posted by Jennifer Allen on September 9th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Keeping track of health data and checkup information for all the family can be pretty tedious. After all, who wants to focus on their ailments all the time? Potentially knowing that knowledge or, more importantly, having that information on hand at all times, could save the life of a much loved family member. As an example, I'm allergic to paracetomol so what happens if I fall unconcious and wind up in hospital in need of painkillers urgently? An app like medAssist will ensure that such allergy information is readily available for any medical professional.

The app offers a place to store simple information such as date of birth as well as more complex and involved knowledge such as allergies, family disease history, blood group, even when the user had surgery or an X-Ray last. Chronic ailments such as joint problems or disease can be stored along with contact details for the family doctor making it easy to check in.

medAssist is one of few apps that could genuinely save lives. At $3.99 that's a small price to pay.
