This Phone App Can Predict If You're About To Get Sick

The future of technology and medicine may be here sooner than we thought. 

Currently in America there are trials for an app that can predict when the user is about to get sick. 

Imagine having 12-24 hours warning that a cold or flu may be on the way. You could get right into the preventative medicine or change your plans to suit. 

We spoke to Dr Luke Katahanas about how an app could predict such a thing. 

Apparently the way it would work would be monitoring the owner's heart rate, behaviour, temperature etc.

Mild changes in those areas can indicate that the person is on the verge of becoming sick. 

Genius! 

We can't wait for it to come to Australia!
