Posted by Admin | Tuesday, September 20, 2011 | , , | 1 comments »

Apple has so many paid and free apps for all of the devices they offer, including iPhone, iPod Touch, and the new iPad. Gaming apps are undoubtedly amongst some of the most downloaded apps, but there is a new category that is garnering a lot of popularity, especially among more lifestyle aware audiences, who want apps on the subjects of medicine, healthcare, and fitness.

iPad Apps

The iTunes App Store currently has over 5389 medical apps for the iPad. A growing number of these apps allow individuals to keep track of their personal health and wellness. The iPad's large screen and touch capabilities provide a colourful, interactive, but simple way to monitor and count calories, chart blood pressure over a period of time, and/or look up the possible causes for any unsettling illness or symptoms. These apps have offered such ease of use and a convenient go-to resource for both patients and healthcare practitioners. Stanford University School of Medicine has even integrated iPads into their curriculum because of apps that can potentially replace paper charts.
