Roundup: Health and Medicine Tools

December 15, 2010

In advance of our next Bay Area Quantified Self Show&Tell meetup, which will have a Health and Medicine theme, this roundup post is on health- and medicine-related self-tracking tools. Blood pressure, genetics, medical test results, blood sugar readings, hormone levels, dietary experiments – if you have a self-tracking project, gadget, or app, we want to know about it! (And good news for all non-San Franciscans – we’ll be trying our first ever livestream of the event on January 11! Stay tuned for more info.)

This post is part of our regular tool roundup for the complete catalog we’re putting together of all the self-tracking tools out there. Please help us to make sure we include your favorite tool, your company, or your project. Self-promotion is allowed!

Here are all the health- and medicine-related tracking tools we’ve found so far. Please let me know what we’re missing in the comments below.
