APPS MAKE OUR EVERYDAY LIFE EASIER.
Hydrocephalus has many different manifestations and causes. The challenges for those affected are complex and very individual, and treatment is therefore sometimes complicated. With the HC&ME App, affected persons can note their well-being, symptoms, activities and the corresponding times of day, and can easily keep track of the entries in simple overviews. They can document their shunt history and valve adjustments and thus always have their digital shunt ID with them.
And: They can decide whether they want to become part of a research project with their anonymized data to expand the knowledge about hydrocephalus in everyday life.
The MIETHKE App shows clearly and quickly understandable how our valves work:
+ Influence of the body position on the opening pressure: The motion sensor of the smartphone simulates the body position of the patient: upright - inclined - lying.
+ Pressure stage recognition in the X-ray image: Every set or preset pressure stage is shown here and can be easily recognized by means of templates.
+ Simulation of adjustability: Valves can be easily adjusted with the finger and thus help to understand what is happening inside the valve.
+ View into the inside of MIETHKE valves: All valves allow a view of their construction and thus the influence of the cerebrospinal fluid flow on the functioning can be shown in an easily understandable way.
+ free for Apple and Android
We consider the individual patient situation, surgical technique and treatment plan. The questions are designed in such a way that the list of results provides a maximum of three product recommendations.
Using a coronary slice image as image import, the THOMALE GUIDE App can calculate the entry angle and the ventricular catheter length as well as the distance of the borehole from the anatomical centerline for controlled ventricular catheter placement. This app is an accessory to the THOMALE GUIDE.
