What went down on Health Hack Day?
Last weekend, the first edition of Health Hack Day was arranged in Stockholm. The event was part networking opportunity for people interested in health technology, and part contest, where ten teams of developers got 24 hours to develop a prototype of a new tool for digital healthcare. Among the contributions were a diary-like app for parents of prematurely born babies, an XBOX Kinect based tool for motoric tests designed for patients suffering from Parkinsons disease, and an app that makes it more fun to keep track on how your wellbeing is affected by what you eat.
The winning contribution though was a smartphone app for urin sample analysis, which uses the smartphones camera to analyze the sample and then visualize the result. If you're curious about how it works, videos of all the presentations and talks from the weekend are available at the Health Hack Day website.
