For $300, a Japanese company will #3Dprint a #bionicarm that connects to your #cellphone & perform some surprisingly limber maneuvers. 3D printed parts make it easy to build and assembled and it can be repaired or reprinted in multiple colors.

East Coast selfies more than West (2:1). Also, if you want more likes, post on Wednesday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. local time.
Technically Incorrect: A study by social network claims there's a time of day when it's best to post photos. And would you believe that photos with women in them get almost 6 times the "likes" of photos with men?

Patients in the #ICU project at +JohnsHopkinsEHP  get a #tablet to interact with the care team through a patient and family portal, which provides family members with options including how to be involved and participate, in care activities. The portal also provides an overview of a standard ICU room where patients and families can learn more about each of the machines and monitors. #mhealth #futureofmedicine #connectedhealth  
Family participation helps patients; respect and dignity are priorities

This #MultiSenseMemorypatch is a flexible, sensor-rich-patch that attaches to the sternum of a patient with adhesive (like a band-aid), takes a baseline vital rating — heart rate, temp and oxygen saturation -– and then measures all changes from the baseline.

More importantly, doctors will be able to place the sensors on patients and then track their vitals from outside the hot zone. The prototype uses a USB cable to transmit data, but the final version will use #Bluetooth and doctors will monitor, for instance, all the patients in a tent from one screen. #Ebola
This wearable sensor from USAID can track vitals of Ebola patients for 7 to 10 days.

Beginning Monday, #Ohioans can use their #cellphones for proof of insurance. Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who also is the director of the Department of Insurance said, “This modification will save time and money benefiting consumers, law enforcement, court personnel and insurers. I commend the work of the Ohio legislature for supporting this change to the process of providing proof to better align with current market realities.”
A new state law soon will let drivers prove that they have insurance coverage with their cellphone or other electronic devices. The law, which goes into effect March 23, formally puts in place what already has become the practice of many insurers, courts and law enforcement agencies.
