Error in PHASES calculator

Professor Stephen Lownie informed me about an error in the PHASES calculator of NeuroMind, and he was right. If the PHASES score is in the range of 3 until 12, you will get a risk of 7.2% (which corresponds with PHASES score of 11) in all cases. I corrected the code that caused this and submitted…Continue Reading…

TREMOR12W: tremor measurements on Apple Watch

You can browse the code in the “watch” branch in the GitHub repo. Despite the official…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:

NeuroMind 3: interactive SLIC score implemented

SLIC is an evidence-based decision supporting system on the (surgical) treatment of subaxial cervical spine injury. It is based on the SLIC scale described by Vaccaro et al(Spine, 2007). It is available as a separate app, but now I also implemented it in NeuroMind 3 for iOS. More interactive decision support is to come! Gallery

NeuroMind 3: content safety check implemented

I implemented iRIS in NeuroMind 3. iRIS stands for interactive Risk Inventory System and that’s my CE-marked system to offer you offline access to the content while maintaining safety in case there are issues with the app or you do not update from time to time. Suppose you have been using the app offline too…Continue Reading…

NeuroMind 3: favorites and more in decision support

After adding the favorite option to the main table view and the individual score items, I now also added it to the decision support mode. Moreover, once you come to the advise of the decision support system and you feel like doing a manual check, that has become easier too!
