One of the most exciting areas of cloud computing is the 'e-health' revolution. For many this is the opportunity to centralise the storage of medical records but for us this is the opportunity to gather medical data in near real-time.

- For the medical industry here is a non invasive method with high compliance (look at the separation anxiety people have when parted from their smart phone 24/7) way to examine post operative recovery and compliance with exercise regimes.
