Strong Points: Fair amount of different classification scales provided
Weak Points: Most useful if you already have a classification scale in mind
NeuroMind is a useful app for medical professionals, particularly those who specialize in neurological diseases and trauma. The app divides neurological issues into overarching categories, including epilepsy, infection, and tumors. Each category contains information about several different classification scales that can be used to assess the problem. Additional information is provided for each level of the classification scales, to aid with diagnosis. Users are able to favorite classification scales that are particularly useful to them and a reference is provided for each scale. In addition to the text-based classification scales, there are a few that have interactive components in which users can adjust parameters such as age and etiology in order to get a more refined result. Although NeuroMind is targeted to a specific audience, it is a useful tool for neurologists and medical professionals as they try to diagnose a patient.
