Searches for android medical recently surpassed searches for iPhone medical according to Google Trends analysis.
The Apple iPhone started as the first dominant smartphone, but Android operating system smartphones are now growing in number and claiming an increasingly large share of the market.
This Google Trends analysis below shows the relatively recent emergence of Android medical as an equal if not leading medical device in Google search. The take home message for app developers is to not ignore the Android operating system when planning and producing medical apps. Search interest in iPhone and iPad medical still remains high. Google Trends is a promising tool for continued monitoring of trends and geographic regional patterns in medical app device interest.
The screen shot for the first comparison is shown below with iPhone medical plotted in blue and Android medical plotted in red. Several noteworthy findings can be seen in this comparison. First, iPhone medical clearly emerges as the earliest device with a nearly two year period before Android medical. Second, the iPhone medical keyword search peaked in early 2012. It is trending downward since that time. Third, Google Trends shows Android medical search terms recently equaling and then surpassing iPhone medical searches.
In the second screen shot, the Google Trends forecast function shows expected trends in searches for the next few months. The forecast lines for the next six months show a trend for increasing Android medical searches with a stagnant trend for iPhone medical searches.
In the third screen shot, Windows medical search finally appears on the radar in 2013, over four years after iPhone medical. The number of searches is relatively small in comparison to both iPhone and Android medical searches.
Like the iPhone, the iPad emerged as the early leader in tablets. In the final screen shot, iPad medical searches in 2010 shows a significant upward trend through 2011-2012. There appears, however, to be a decrease in iPad medical searches over the last year.
Interestingly, the regional distribution of trends by devices shows a predominance of iPhone medical search interest in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. In contrast, the highest regional trend for Android medical search comes from Pakistan, the Philippines and India.
A lot of things have changed since the 19th century. When Barkham Burroughs wrote his Encyclopaedia of Astounding Facts and Useful Information in 1889, he devoted a full chapter to the "secrets of beauty," and for good reason.
A lightweight and field-portable device invented at UCLA that conducts kidney tests and transmits data through a smartphone attachment may significantly reduce the need for frequent office visits by people with diabetes and others with chronic kidney ailments.
The smartphone-based device was developed in the research lab of Aydogan Ozcan, a professor of electrical engineering and bioengineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, and associate director of the California NanoSystems Institute. Weighing about one-third of a pound, the gadget can determine levels of albumin in the patient's urine and transmit the results within seconds. Albumin is a protein in blood that is a sign of danger when found in urine.
Ozcan's lab also developed the opto-mechanical phone attachment, disposable test tubes, Android app and software to transmit the data. The research was published this month by the peer-reviewed journal Lab on a Chip ("Albumin testing in urine using a smart-phone").
"Albumin testing is frequently done to assess kidney damage, especially for diabetes patients," Ozcan said. "This device provides an extremely convenient platform for chronic patients at home or in remote locations where cell phones work."
Patients at risk for diabetes, kidney disease and other ailments must regularly provide fluid samples — sometimes more than one a day — to monitor their health, which requires visits to labs or health centers.
The new device projects beams of visible light through two small fluorescent tubes attached to the device, one containing a control liquid and the other a urine sample mixed with fluorescent dyes. The smartphone camera captures the fluorescent light after it passes through an additional lens.
An Android application then processes the raw images in less than one second and the device transmits the test results to a database or health care provider. The test, which measures albumin concentration in urine, is accurate to within less than 10 micrograms per milliliter, according to the research, well within accepted clinical standards used in diagnosing conditions such as microalbuminuria, the excretion of albumin in urine.
The time it takes to conduct a test, including preparation of a sample using a small syringe to inject the urine into a fluorescent tube, is about five minutes. Ozcan estimates that the device — for which his lab also has developed an iPhone app — could be produced commercially for $50 to $100 per unit.
