Smart phone recognizes symptoms

What if your smart phone recognizes your symptoms through your everyday activities.

Habits/routines you often perform or that are necessities on your phones could be used to read patterns. It could be the text message app that recognizes your inability to write as fast as you normally do, your the code reader to open your phone that recognizes that you are either slower than normal or need several attempts to do something that you normally do not need to do several times.

But what would the result be? How can the phone encourage the user to seek medical help?

    Brilliant, I like your way of thinking!

    I like a lot the idea. I would see a partnership with those apps that offer games like Sudoku that can send an alert if they see a deterioration of performance

  • The Alzheimer's Society in the UK together with Oxford University are doing research in how people interact with smartphones, see here: https://www.joingamechanger.org/ And there is a very cool game developed by Alzheimer's Research and UCL, too: http://www.seaheroquest.com/site/en So there are definitely some research-based outcomes on the horizon!

    Thank you for sharing this Katarzyna! I was wondering which data the phone would need to collect to detect dementia/alzheimers. As they wrote, one of the first signs is often on navigation, but maybe there is more. Exciting to look into that more!
