An App for Lymphedema Self Care

(Before It's News)

I am on the fence on this one. At NYU, a bunch of really smart people have developed a prototype of an app for self-care for lymphedema. They have tried it on about 20 people. They realize that they used their app on patients who are highly educated and tech savvy. A great idea. Right?

Not. They realize their audience is skewed in one direction. But I think I could be put in that group myself of well educated and tech savvy but I am not going to jump on my phone or laptop at every twinge. Not happening.

I think I blogged about the idea of 'cool' apps for anyone over 30. Not so great. I like the idea of helping with self-care for patients but not necessarily an app. I think we need a new idea for this. The internet and technology do not solve everything.
