As the online world gets "more personal", health apps like AgeMe deliver what consumers want
According to figures from the Rock Health Report, the future of health lies in your smartphone: "Digital health" is a term used for the practice of medicine and public health supported by mobile devices. As the world gets "more personal" in every aspect, it makes sense that health apps, tailored to individuals' needs and available when and where they want them, will see a growing market for both medical professionals and consumers. According to Rock, 38% of physicians with smartphones already use apps on a daily basis. Consumers have already been moving to their smartphones for health, lifestyle, sports and fitness apps, but in the not-too-distant future, will also use their smartphones for more personal medical purposes. As boomers age and the digital generations grow older, they won't settle for anything less.
AgeMe, has from its inception, has created and delivered people's facial images showing them what they look like as they age naturally, and also with the effects of smoking, weight gain, and sun exposure. That's why AgeMe is cited as such a powerful tool by those in health and lifestyle education - when showing someone their own "future face", the effects are very personal and powerful.
