NeuroMind and OrthoRef 3.0 delayed

I am sorry to say that the final release of both NeuroMind 3.0 and OrthoRef 3.0 will be delayed. I submitted both updates before Xmas hoping they would be available at the beginning of January. Part of these updates is an Information screen that refers to the app’s homepage, and that homepage mentions that the…Continue Reading…

TREMOR12W: tremor measurements on Apple Watch

After learning how to transfer data from the Apple Watch to the iPhone, I have been working on the TREMOR12 app by creating a WatchKit extension to perform tremor measurements on the Apple Watch and send them to the iPhone. You can browse the code in the “watch” branch in the GitHub repo. Despite the official…Continue Reading…

Transfer data from Apple Watch to iPhone

I have been playing around with watchOS2 development lately and created a small test project to transfer data from the Apple Watch to the iPhone. The full source code is available from GitHub, for anyone interested. The code is based on tutorials at Techotopia.com and RayWenderlich.com using Apple’s Watch Connectivity framework in Swift. Feel free to reuse…Continue Reading…

Installing Parallels Tools in CentOS 6 on El Capitan

I am using Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac OS X to run other operating systems on my Macbook Pro. This works fine for Windows 8 – I have no need for Windows 10 yet. This also works fine for Ubuntu. For a Big Data specialization on Coursera organized by the San Diego Supercomputer Center I need…Continue Reading…

TREMOR12 export dialog improved

I improved the export dialog from the TREMOR12 app to offer the same functionality you get in NeuroMind 3. The original version just contained email export, now you get the familiar dialog that allows to export to other programs too. The GitHub repo has been updated and the 1.1 version has been submitted to the…Continue Reading…

NeuroMind 3: new styling for scores

The last improvement that I wanted before releasing NeuroMind 3 is a better styling of the content (in particular the score details and decision support feedback). Now I did that! Here is a “before” and “after”…. Before   After I guess I made my point! :-) More images

NeuroMind 3: Spine Instability Neoplastic Score decision support

As a last content addition before submitting NeuroMind 3 to the App Store, I added the Spine Instability Neoplastic Score (SINS) as interactive decision support: This will also be available as an In App Purchase for $0.99. The only thing left before releasing NeuroMind 3 is to improve the styling a little…. Stay tuned! More images from SINS…Continue Reading…

NeuroMind 3: PHASES implemented

For NeuroMind 3 I also reimplemented the PHASES score, which predicts the 5 year risk for subarachnoidal hemorrhage. One caveat: as an incentive for continuous development, I will start offering In App Purchases in NeuroMind for interactive content. This is the first decision support system in NeuroMind that will ask for a small fee ($0.99). The…Continue Reading…

UIActivityViewController in NeuroMind 3

For all decision support items in NeuroMind 3 I am offering you the option to export the result for later reference. Up to now, this was only possible as email. Now I implemented it in the way I wanted it to be: you can export your results (input parameters, scores per section, total) as a…Continue Reading…

NeuroMind 3: interactive TLICS implemented

I just implemented the interactive version of the TLICS score for thoraco-lumbar spine injury in the upcoming version of NeuroMind 3. It is much like the SLIC score, but with slightly different calculations. Here are some more images:
