MU develops an app to tackle depression

A team of developers from the University of Missouri, the Missouri University of Science and Technology and the Tiger Institute for Health Innovation has developed an app that helps patients deal with depression, according to a press release. The free application, called MoodTrek, lets users monitor their moods and symptoms and share the data with their physicians.

MoodTrek can analyze the causes of depression such as lack of sleep or physical activities. The app can also link to FitBit activity trackers and to Cerner’s electronic medical records for instant uploading of data to the patient’s file.

MoodTrek is free on Android devices and is expected soon for Apple iOS.
