This paper examines the state of the art in mobile clinical and health-related apps. A 2012 estimate puts the number of health-related apps at no fewer than 40,000, as healthcare professionals and consumers continue to express concerns about the quality of many apps, calling for some form of app regulatory control or certification to be put in place. We describe the range of apps on offer as of 2013, and then present a brief survey of evaluation studies of medical and health-related apps that have been conducted to date, covering a range of clinical disciplines and topics...

BACKGROUND: Severe hypoglycemic events are a major consequence of tight diabetes control. Continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMSs) were recently introduced in order to minimize the risk of hypoglycemia. However, the present CGMSs are invasive and costly and have been recently demonstrated to be intolerant for most children and adolescents. Hence there is a need for a simple, noninvasive, convenient, and inexpensive device to detect hypoglycemic events. The Gili Medical Hypoglycemia Non Invasive Monitoring System (GMHNIMS) (Gili Medical Ltd...
