BBC NEWS | Health | 3D computer map pinpoints pains

BBC NEWS | Health | 3D computer map pinpoints pains: "People in pain could soon use a 3D computer program to explain how severe their symptoms are. It has been developed by a team at Brunel University to help wheelchair users log, from home, how they are feeling during the course of a day. Currently, patients have to detail how their pain has been on pen and paper during their visits to the doctor. The program, which only requires a standard portable computer, can be uploaded by doctors at any point. It means doctors can build up information on how pain changes and the types of pain a patient has."

This type of medical data input could be done through the mobile phone ( which so many of us carry 24/7) as well !
