Using Uchek You Can Test Your Urine For Medical Issues
Uchek is a smartphone app developed by Myshkin Ingawale that was shown off at a TED conference in Los Angeles. The app can be used to check your urine for 25 different health issues including diabetes, urinary tract infections, cancers and liver problems.
The app will be initially available for iPhone with the view to release an Android version in the near future. The total cost will be around £13 which includes the testing kit with 5 dip sticks. The app will be available around the end of March. The app’s accuracy will be tested in the King Edward Memorial hospital in Mumbai alongside their regular testing facilities.
The aim is to allow the app and kits to be used instead of expensive machines, especially in developing countries where medical facilities are often scarce.
