DANA, which received FDA clearance in October 2014, is a mobile medical app that can be used on a phone or tablet and works on both the Android and iOS operating systems. It’s a game-like tool that can provide data within minutes to help assess and measure a person’s brain/cognitive health. The app can help clinicians as a diagnostic tool when looking at concussion, depression, dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, eating disorders, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Exponential Medicine is a unique four-day conference by Singularity University which brings together world-class faculty, participants, demos and workshops to explore how technology is impacting and can reshape the future of health and biomedicine.
