4 Of The Best Heart Health Apps

4 Of The Best Heart Health Apps | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the U.S. As people age, their hearts undergo changes that make them particularly vulnerable to cardiovascular disease, according to the National Institute on Aging. With advancements in mobile technology, there are now smartphone applications that enable seniors to monitor their heart health on a regular basis. 

As the heart ages, its blood vessels become stiffer and the heart wall gets thicker in order to more efficiently support the flow of blood throughout the body. The NIA noted that the stiffness also spreads to the valves, which may make it difficult for the vessels to pump blood out of the heart and might even result in leaks. These age-related factors, along with well-known causes like an unhealthy diet, increase seniors' risks of developing heart disease.

It's more important than ever for adults to keep an eye on their heart health as they enter into old age. They should consider using one of these four mobile apps to complement their other daily efforts for preventing heart disease.

“The common thread across wearables is that the device is attached or worn on the body,” Tractica reports. “Wearables can be sensor-infused devices, clothing that is reading vital biometric data off the body, or simply a body-mounted camera or a pair of smart glasses that allows for hands-free operation. More importantly, wearables in their various shapes and forms are reinventing the way humans interact with computers, in the process getting a better understanding of their bodies and their   The United States and North America as a whole is leading the way in the wearables market while China is right behind. Additionally, the report finds one trend within the sector moving toward using analytics to study the wide range of consumer health data gathered via wearable devices.  “The wearables market is a collection of micro trends within each device segment, application area, and world region,” research director Aditya Kaul stated in a Tractica press release. “It is important to examine each of these areas closely in order to gain a comprehensive view about how the market will take shape in the years ahead.”  The Tractica report details several major wearable devices that are impacting the healthcare industry such as smart glasses, fitness trackers, body sensors, smart clothing, wearable cameras, and smart watches. When it comes to funding the wearables market, the report uncovered a key trend of crowdfunding and how it affects the development of these devices.  When it comes to virtual healthcare services including the virtual reality space, wearable devices are necessary to bring speedier medical care delivery. Wearable cameras along with smart glasses all bring benefits to physicians, such as when communicating with specialists located across the state or country.    “The wearable technology market is a combination of multiple device types, applications, and use cases. The breadth and diversity of the market makes it unique, and unlike any other consumer electronics category that has existed before,” stated the Tractica press release. “The wearables market is diversifying at an extraordinary pace. New device categories are emerging, applications are proliferating in consumer and enterprise markets alike, and business models are evolving rapidly.”

Doctors say fitness trackers, health apps can boost care

Doctors say fitness trackers, health apps can boost care | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it

That phone app keeping track of your exercise and meals might keep you out of the hospital one day.

Why give your doctors permission to incorporate data from fitness trackers and health apps into electronic patient records? Well, they might spot signs of an ailment sooner and suggest behavioral changes or medication before you land in the emergency room. They also might be able to monitor how you're healing from surgery or whether you're following a treatment regimen.

"Right now we only see our patients for about a 15-minute visit in the office, and it's a very constricted view," said Dr. Lauren Koniaris, a specialist in pulmonary critical care at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. "This really globalizes the view of their health status, so that we're really in contact with them on a much more daily if not hour-to-hour basis. It's almost like a virtual house call."
