On the Wednesday, January 30th 2013 broadcast, our guest is clinician turned biometric global scoring system inventor and passionate technologist Michaeal Singer. Singer defines the technology as follows: 'Vitality Analyzer is an FDA approved Class II, over-the-counter medical device that electrically measures your health'. The website then poses the following:
'Imagine if you could have a conversation with your body on a cellular level. What if you asked your cells, how am I really doing? Am I healthy? Is my treatment working? Is there anything I could be doing better?' And then goes on to explain:
'The Vitality Analyzer is a simple tool that helps you answer those questions. Based on well established technology, the Vitality Analyzer measures your health collecting information about your body’s cells and then translates it to a numeric score; your Vitality Index a global health indicator.'
At a time when mobile and wireless health applications are exploding with eveyone from the likes of Eric Topol, MD, 'The Creative Destruction of Medicine' and Larry Smaar documenting his ongoing experience with 'quantifying' his micro health choices and experience, there appears to be a growing national obsession with biometric values capture, reporting and sharing.
On the broadcast we chat with Mr. Singer and explore the potential utility of this device and associated scoring system to the care and monitoting of cancer patients.
