Principles behind euMetrica coming up elsewhere!

It's very reassuring to see some of the themes we mention while developing euMetrica coming up elsewhere. Means we're heading in the right direction - at least if the problems we thought were problems are actually being discussed by the users. Let's take a look!

"...While there are many applications for dedicated devices, Estrin said she is particularly interested in converting phone apps into data streams..."

Dr. Eric Topol diagnoses Atrial Fibrillation (current euMetrica focus!) on a flight, using the AliveCor mobile EKG reader - see the EKG graph here

Now, wouldn't it be great if you had one of the smartphone EKG devices and could connect to the WiFi network, sharing your data with a physician for analysis just like this, but all in real time over the net? That's one of our goals at euMetrica! (note: if there were other device players on the market, the devices could be made more affordable through competition too!)

On slide 27, a quote by Qualcomm staff mentions the lack of interoperability between current wireless medical devices and the inconvenience it causes for the caretakers and patients...Wouldn't it be great if I could see all of my body measurements in a single place? We're aiming for that one with euMetrica as well!
