New Mobile App for Patients with Multiple Sclerosis and Diabetes

COOPER CITY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A free smartphone app, TrackMyShots, is now available to help ease the log-keeping of patients with multiple sclerosis, diabetes and other conditions requiring frequent injections.

The app eliminates the need for bulky log books by allowing the user to record each injection, track injection sites and monitor adverse reactions. Users can set up an ongoing schedule for their injections and get email alerts when it is time for their next shot.

Developed by Linxter, Inc., a software development company in Cooper City, Florida, the app was created to help a family friend with multiple sclerosis, said company CEO and founder Jason Milgram.

“She had carried around a bulky paper logbook for years,” Milgram said. “She and her husband asked if I could help develop an app that would allow her to keep track of the injections.”

People who suffer from multiple sclerosis typically use a paper log book to record the date, time and where on their body they administered the injection. There are various injection sites on the body, and patients need to rotate injections sites to avoid developing scar tissue that would make a site unusable.

The app’s initial release is available for Windows Phone 7 users. An Android version will be available in late August, and iPhone users will be able to access the app in late September.

TrackMyShots, http://trackmyshots.com, recently received a Hero of the Week award from Microsoft, which “honors excellence in the field of app development.”
