The Quantified Self and the implications for physical therapy

The Quantified Self and the implications for physical therapy | Apple, iphone | Scoop.it
Currently there is an explosion of interest in personal digital devices and apps that track an individual’s health data primarily for their own consumption and interpretation. Every week new products are launched that aim to measure something new or bring together a set of measures into a more useful package (e.g. Athos digital clothing that tracks muscle recruitment, heart rate etc). Around these devices is a growing community of early adopters who are testing, experimenting and sharing their experiences. These self-confessed self-tracking geeks refer to this new domain as the Quantified SelfSome examples of the types of data being tracked by these Quantified Selfers that are of particular interest to PT include: - - Activity levels (exercise) – devices generally the record number of steps taken but also can record elevation gained (number of stairs and floors) and even estimate a measure of calories burned. Example devices include the Fitbit, Nike Fuelband, Jawbone Up,Striiv and Withings Pulse. - Body health measures – devices that track a wide variety of health measures such as heart rate, skin temperature, perspiration (e.g. the Basis watch), blood pressure (e.g. the iHealth blood pressure monitor), blood oxygen saturation (e.g. the iHealth Pulse Oximeter), heart ECG trace (e.g. Alivecor), blood sugar (e.g. iBGStar) etc.
So why should physical therapists and physiotherapists be paying attention to this trend?- See more at: http://www.physiospot.com/opinion/the-quantified-self-and-the-implications-for-physical-therapy-physiotherapy/

What companies make these? What do they do?!?!? How much do these cost? Can u call on these like the smart watches? If i had to guess it would be just like the nike fuel band..... That's my opinion on this high tech watch.....

Hunter Groom's insight:
I think this innovation will be in history forever and ever. I personally think this because is super important is because of the iOS 7. Concluding in the new important features, but my important question is: why can't Apple make more iOS faster than usually.

RNFrostedSidebar : A Control Center-esque control with blurred background and toggle animations.

RNFrostedSidebar : A Control Center-esque control with blurred background and toggle animations. | Apple, iphone | Scoop.it
"You'll notice that this control's use of blur does not match Jakub's original design exactly. In the original design the background of the buttons is blurred, while the overlay of the control is simply shaded. There have beenattempts at recreating this effect, but it is rumored that live-blurring takes place at a much lower level on the GPU and there would be security concerns were we to have access.Apple is being a little deceptive with their use of blurring in iOS 7. Bottom line, don't animate blurs in your designs."

Understanding the Human Machine

Understanding the Human Machine | Apple, iphone | Scoop.it
The concepts of “self-tracking” and “the quantified self” have recently begun to emerge in discussions of how best to optimize one’s life. These concepts refer to the practice of gathering data about oneself on a regular basis and then recording and analyzing the data to produce statistics and other data (such as images) relating to one’s bodily functions and everyday habits. Some self-trackers collect data on only one or two dimensions of their lives, and only for a short time. Others may do so for hundreds of phenomena and for long periods.The tracking and analysis of aspects of one’s self and one’s body are not new practices. People have been recording their habits and health-related metrics for centuries as part of attempts at self-reflection and self-improvement.What is indisputably new is the term “the quantified self” and its associated movement, which includes a dedicated website with that title, and regular meetings and conferences, as well as the novel ways of self-tracking using digital technologies that have developed in recent years.A growing range of digital devices with associated apps are now available for self-tracking [1]. Many of these devices can be worn on or close to the body to measure elements of the user’s everyday life and activities and produce data that can be recorded and monitored by the user. They include not only digital cameras, smartphones, tablet computers, watches, wireless weight scales, and blood pressure monitors, but also wearable bands or patches, clip-on devices and jewelry with embedded sensors able to measure bodily functions or movement and upload data wirelessly.In many of these devices global positioning devices, gyroscopes, altimeters, and accelerometers provide spatial location and quantify movement. These technologies allow self-trackers to collect data on their moods, diet, dreams, social encounters, posture, sexual activity, blood chemistry, heart rate, body temperature, exercise patterns, brain function, alcohol, coffee and tobacco consumption, and many other variables.Read more at the original source: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?reload=true&tp=&arnumber=6679313

NSPredicate

NSPredicate | Apple, iphone | Scoop.it
NSPredicate is a Foundation class that specifies how data should be fetched or filtered. Its query language, which is like a cross between a SQL WHERE clause and a regular expressions, provides an expressive, natural language interface to define logical conditions on which a collection is searched.

What is that?!?!? I think it's inside a computer? And all of those numbers are software and apps I think. And storage inside the clear screen..... Is this inside every computer if it is inside computers???? If so that's so cool and amazing what humans are capable of making in our years.
