Get out of the sun app
The i-phone app Sun Alert Lite calculates how long tan-lovers can stay in the sun. Users type in their skin type, the SPF of applied sun cream and the actual weather conditions. The app buzzes a warning when it is time to go back into the shade.
Why it matters
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (USA), skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Taking this into account, such reminder apps may help prevent serious health troubles. Will personal health management apps revolutionize the health system –putting the control back in consumers hands?
Yves Rocher (cosmetics company) and Gullon (biscuits company) have joined forces to take care of their consumers through the “healthy life” program. When you buy a DietNature product (sugar free products) you will find on the promotion boxes a voucher for a free Body Exfoliation in Ives Rocher shops. Furthermore the client will obtain a 50% discount in products of the catalogue.
This new app helps you measure your heart beat by simply holding your face in front of your smartphone. It measures the light reflected from your face and translates it into a measurement. This app, although not intended to replace healthcare tools is a very useful asset to help people measure their heart rate and take action if needed.
