SALSA’s Armstrong Keynotes on Mobile Health (#mHealth) and the future of prevention to European Wound Technology Symposium in Paris

David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the University of Arizona’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) led an enthusiastic transatlantic discussion at the European Association for Wound Technology (EAWT) symposium held in Paris. Broadcast in from the BioCommunications Unit at UA Medical Center, Armstrong discussed his teams’ latest studies and programs in mobile health (mHealth). “From smart shirts to smart socks, we can now help people monitor how they move through their world. It is a tremendously exciting time.” Armstrong went on to discuss sensors fit into bath mats that can predict when someone will develop a limb-threatening wound. “We at SALSA envision a subscription service– just like Hulu or Netflix or your home security system– but for your body. What we have been discussing and working on for years has now become inexpensive enough to fit under your, my, and our patients’ sink.”
