The National Center for TeleHealth and Technology has developed a number of helpful mobil apps for the military community and care providers as noted below:

BioZen is one of the first mobile applications to provide users with live biofeedback data from multiple wearable body sensors covering a range of biophysiological signals, including electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyography (EMG), galvanic skin response (GSR), electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), respiratory rate, and temperature biofeedback data and display it on a mobile phone.

Provider Resilience gives health care providers tools to guard against burnout and compassion fatigue as they help service members, veterans, and their families.

Your responses to a short self-assessment create ratings of your risk for compassion fatigue, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress. These ratings can also be viewed as graphs so you can monitor them over time.

A clock showing time since your last day off, inspirational cards, stretches, and Dilbert comics all encourage you to take restful breaks critical to avoiding burnout. Finally, videos by service members describing the positive impact health care providers had in their lives are there when you need a reminder of the value of what you do.

Social network

POS REP
http://pos-rep.com/
POS REP  (short for "position report") is a mobile, proximity-based social network made expressly for the military veteran community.

The inspiration for POS REP is Sgt Clay Hunt, USMC (1982-2011). Clay Hunt served in the Marine Corps with POS REP Co-Founder Jake Wood and deployed in the same sniper section to both Iraq and Afghanistan. Clay returned to civilian life deeply scarred with the mental and emotional wounds of war, and as a result, served as a leading national advocate for veterans with PTSD.

Clay moved back to Houston in late 2010 finding himself isolated, misunderstood and depressed. Tragically, Clay took his own life in March 2011. At the memorial service Wood discovered that within 15 miles of Clay’s apartment had lived 3 Marines with whom they had both served – Clay had in fact not been alone.

POS REP was developed to prevent the next Clay Hunt from happening again.

Over the next five years, an estimated one million U.S. military servicemembers will take off the uniform. POS REP will keep veterans connected to their existing military network while helping them discover veterans and resources in their communities. Additionally, POS REP will serve as a universal mobile platform for the non-profit, government and private sector organizations that support veterans reintegration.

Wounded warriors

IED Impact (free)
> iTunes
IMPACT (Injured Military Personnel Assisting Combat Troops) is driven by a simple question posed by a number of severely injured Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center – How can I get back to my Unit? IMPACT was created to allow these Wounded Warriors to share their invaluable 1st person lessons/insights with one another – thus putting them virtually back in their units.

IMPACT is designed to serve a diverse yet incredibly tight group of men and women – the joint services C-IED Community. The goal of the app is to provide meaningful connectivity between the active duty members of this community, the Wounded Warriors, and the families who support their wounded sons, daughters, and spouses. We have created a social platform that will allow members to share and benefit from the life-saving lessons and support that exist in abundance in this community. Our network is a secure collaboration environment where members can feel comfortable creating and sharing videos, pictures, text, and links centered around enriching the lives of those who have given so much for our country.
