20. 3D Brain and Lose it
These are two fantastic applications to use with patients. 3D brain is an app derived from the Genes to Cognition Online website, funded by the Dana Foundation and Hewlett Foundation. Using native iPhone gestures, the app allows you to zoom and rotate images of the brain in a three dimensional fashion. When trying to explain brain pathologies to patients this application is a terrific resource.
Lose It is a great application to use when counseling patients on their diet and exercise. As you can see in the included pictures, you are able to select particular foods (even from fast food places!) and types of exercise, and show patients where they stack up in relation to calorie goals. I’ve used this app with patients before, and you can get your point across about the impact of a unhealthy diet within a few minutes of using the application.
